Mule 3010 parking brake switch

Where is this switch located? Is it under the rubber boot protecting the brake mechanism?

I have an '05 3010 and the parking brake light and high water temperature light don't come on. However, the radiator fan runs and it's powered by the same switch that powers the light. I don't know if I have bad bulbs or what. I can find no easy way to remove the bulbs to check them.

Any pointers?

Thanks for your time.

Here's an update. The water temperature light bulb is fine and won't come on until the temp is above 105F, I have no way of easily checking the water temperature, I'll wait until summer in the SoCal desert and check it. The parking brake light switch is on the brake handle, my problem was simply a dirty contact on the switch. I burnished the contact point and applied a small dab of No-Ox and it's working fine.

Coker737,

OK, here's the real deal :) ! After reading the shop manual and looking at the schematic, I don't see how the lights would come on momentarily when you start the rig. There is no ground offered to the switches to turn on the light, none that I can see in the schematic. Also, the temp light comes on between 226F and 237F, not 110F, it was 110C DUH :wacko: my bad.

Instead of doing my reading in the morning after my first cup of coffee, I should wait until later in the day after I've had my first cold adult beverage :D !

      #1   While troubleshooting an issue with temp warning light I discovered another temp switch mounted in the pipe going to the head  The two switches are literally 6 inches apart.  Does anyone know what this third switch is used for?  If i can figure out how I will post pictures.
      Author #2   Finally got the pictures took.  See the photo and tell me if you know what the switch on the right is.
      It looks to be factory and I know the girl who bought it new and she didn't install it.
      I can't find anything on it in any manual i have looked at.  Any help would be appreciated.

      I have a 2018 Massimo Buck 400 with 278 miles. 
      Having issues with my brakes. Took the buggy hunting and when I let my foot off the gas pedal it pulls without pressing on the brake. I looked and the pads on all 4 wheels are all toast. The E-Brake hasn’t been on since I have had it. I am guessing it may be a master cylinder issue because all 4 pads are gone. They all seem to have worn evenly that’s why I think the master cylinder. Just got the machine used from a older couple and they said it sat for some time in there pole barn. Possibly the brake lines? Calipers? I took one brake apart and when I depressed the caliper it didn’t stay. Any help is muck appreciated.

      Hey Yall,
      I have a 2011 cub cadet UTV that runs rough at higher speeds (sputters) . I changed plugs and replaced the gas with new . Does anyone have any idea thinking fuel filter or pump ?
