brake warning light switch

The brake light switch on my master cylinder is not connected. There are two wires nearby, one brown and the other brown with yellow. Anybody happen to know how these wires are supposed to be connected?

On the 914, all solid brown are grounds...

The other goes to the Brake Warning Light on your dash panel multi-gauge...

There is a switch on the Master cylinder...Old style had two connection points (one for ground and one for light)...Newer style had one connection for the light...

Depending on which MC you have, connect as above...If you have the newer style with only one connection, just fold back the solid brown and tape off, you don't need it...

The newer style grounds through the case...

That explains why there's only one connector on the switch but 2 wires. I'll try it. Thanks!
