Hey guys just wondering how the parking brake alarm works. Mine doesn't light up when the parking brake is on. I checked the bulb and it's good. Thanks

That is a pretty simple circuit, an 18 GA black wire which is plugged into the fuse box then goes through the parking brake alarm switch then to the light. You could check to see if there is power at the fuse box first then see if it is getting through the switch. Lamar

Checked the power coming from the fuse block and there's no power.

If I understand it, the pink wire that powers the parking brake alarm comes from the accessory side of the ignition switch. You said that you didn’t have power at the fuse block and if so, was the switch on or at least in the on position? If not try it again with the switch in the on position and if you still don’t have power from where you checked it before try checking for power where I have it circled because this will be like checking it at the switch. Also, if you have power at the circled area check the other side of the fuse to make sure that it is ok.

Check for power at this point.

Ok, now check to see if you have power where I circled the end of the fuse
