20 Most Recent 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Questions & Answers

Two reasons for the brake light to be on. 1) Parking brake and 2) problem with pressure in the brake lines.
If the parking brake is off and the ignition is on but the brake light stays on, then there's a problem with the switch attached to the parking brake. It might be stuck or broken.
If the brake light goes on when you apply the brakes, there is an imbalance somewhere in the brake lines between front and back wheels. This light usually goes out when your foot is off the brake, but if it stays on, the switch in the brake lines near the master cylinder might be stuck or broken.

Remove the covers below the steering column. Locate the wiring harness mounted to the steering column. Follow the wires toward the steering wheel. You should be able to locate the separate 3 same size wire harness for the cruise control. The wires from the switch handle run alongside, on the inside of the column with your turn signal wires.

if you can open the door, there is a small 'window' on the case inside the glove box. With a pointed tool (paper clip?) there is a tab you need to push in through the window. While holding the tab down, spin the cylinder to remove. If it is a locking cylinder, while pushing the tab down, insert the key. This will hold the tab down. Then you can turn the cylinder to remove it.
