<VV> Brake lights

When the master cylinder needs to be rebuilt, it might not return to the 
top of its travel (seen it many times), keeping the brake lights on. The 
pedal must come up far enough to push in the plunger on the switch to 
turn off the lights.

Back in the day when these cars were cheap transportation, the quick fix 
was a screen door spring to pull on the pedal......  Of course the 
correct fix was rebuild the master cylinder.

Now if the plunger is pushed in and the lights are still on, the switch 
is defective.
