    Not sure if I’m posting in correct place but looking for the location of the low air warning pressure switch on a 1999-2000 freightliner FL-112. Last 6 of vin is A89035.

    thank you

    Behind the pedals in the air mainfold.

    Be easy on the tags and you might can still read what each switch is for.

    If it’s not there. Might be on the parking brake. About the size of an old standard round emergency flasher. Should say NC on it. Maybe NC65. Normally closed, opens at 65lbs.

    On that “Business Class” cab they are usually behind the center instrument cluster on a manifold mounted on the bottom of the dash above the peddles. Cannot be accessed at all from underneath.

    Shouldn’t have too. The air lines and oil pressure line are long enough on mine to pull it to the steering wheel. The oil pressure line is coiled brown plastic hose so it had a little more play on its side of cluster.

    I posted a picture above, any chance I could luck out and that be it? Before I try to remove dash and look down inside

    That may be it unless it is just a switch to activate the warning light on dash to let you know the brakes are set. Some had that as option.

    I noticed the connectors were kind of pulled off the sensor and I pushed them back on tight so maybe the light and buzzer will go off. If not guess I’m pulling the dash apart again to look for the manifold. When I looked in there today there was wires and stuff every where and going to have to move a lot I think to expose manifold
