    So, when I bought my 2010 K9 last month, I was made aware that it came with a couple issues. Here they are:

    1) the kill switch does not work
    2) the brake lights do not work when the FRONT brake is used. *They work fine with the rear brake, but not the front brake.

    I found the replacement control modules (thinking the kill switch and brake light issue might be because of a bad hand control module), but when the new one was installed - the same issues remained and the added issue of the turn signal not working occurred. So, I had the old one put back in.

    Those are my issues: no brake light and no kill switch.

    I appreciate any help in troubleshooting these issues.

    Thanks!

    If it any thing like my 04 l would look at the connection under the tank where the cable from the right hand module plugs into the main harnes. Look for wires pulled out of the connector, bent pins inside the connector or not being plugged in all the way :2cents:

    Took this off the bigdogisback web site. He is plugging in the right side hand controls at the connection I was thinking of.

    If it has the old r.i.p kit then your kill switch won't work. The run button functions as both the run and kill switch.

    As far as the front brake, try adjusting the magnet in the right hand control for the front brake

    Would you mind explaining both the RIP kit and the magnet thing you mentioned?

    Thanks!

    Part number 7 is the magnet I believe and if you take the seat off and take a picture straight down on the right side of the battery box ,someone will tell you if you have and ehc or rip kit installed. Hope this helps. If you don't have a service manual do a search for the manual . member Broadband has a dropbox link
