I just bought a 2016 Scrambler 62 with 1600 miles on it, barely used. Neither the front brake lever or the rear brake pedal activates brake light. The light is on when I turn the bike on. So I'm not sure honestly if that is just a low parking light situation or if it is the brake light being on. Any advice? Before I take it 2 and 1/2 hours to a dealer.

I’ve said this on other posts so I’m starting to bore myself now never mind others. The electrics on the Scrambler are pretty sophisticated so if the ecu detects a fault of any kind to the brake light it automatically cuts power to it. It also does the same to the indicators and probably other things also. This information will not cure the fault but I thought I’d share it anyway.

I have a 2018 Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled. The license plate light is active but not the tiny red oval light beside it, during operation or in the "On" Position. Neither the brake light nor the tail light are active during operation. I identified the fuse that belongs to the brake light and tail light and confirmed they are intact. My next step is to check the bulb before bringing it in for service. However, I am stuck on the disassembly or removal of those bulbs. The service manual for that year does not include bulb replacement. Any resources for this level of repair?

Can you pull the tray it under the seat (4 Allen screws if it's the same as the icon)? The worrying us under there and the connector will be close by. Inspect for any damage.

The light that comes on when the ignition is turned on will be the tail light not the brake light.
If the brake light does not work with either the front or rear brake the first thing I would look at is the bulb.
If the light goes on with rear brake then bulb ok, often a little corrosion in the microswitch so WD40 and work the lever with a flick might sort that :)
