Default Parking Brake Indicator

Hi all,
Just a question..do any of you know why my truck(10'Ram 1500 Crew 4x4)does not have an indicator light go on when the parking brake is applied?? Was at the dealer for the tie rod end recall and asked them to look into it. Apparently some models have an indicator light go on and some don't...???...

Can you take a pic and post it so I can see where?? Is it part of the information display or a stand alone indicator?

Thx. I will take a look to see if there is an outline in the display where it might illuminate. The pic is from an '11, do u think it might be different than the '10s?? Could the dealer be right and my truck might not have one? I think that would be completely stupid if it were true.

If you have evic i would think you have the same cluster, i find it hard to believe you dont have some sought of parking brake indicator....perhaps bad switch not triggering light?

Default Parking Brake

If you look at your owners manual, I believe pages 201-202 there is a picture of the 2 instrument clusters. Both have the Parking Brake indicator in the lower left hand corner as was shown on the 11's.

You should definitely have one. I have the base ST and have an e-brake light.
