Brake light won't come on, fuse checked. ** Solved pressure switch **

I've got an '08 model with the Vortex rear pressure switch, brake light won't light up when I hit the brakes, neither front nor rear. Checked the fuse box under the seat, the connection from fuse box to the light, and both front and rear pressure switches. Is there anything else I'm missing? Or am I gonna have to chase down the wires and find the cause?

is your rear brake super bright red right now? maybe you have too much tension on your pressure switch. try loosening it up.

Is the tail light plugged in? You sure you checked the correct fuse and it wasn't blown?
