Gary, the later Plus 2s (S130s etc) had a mechanical brake light switch mounted on the pedal box ONLY. No hydraulic switch anywhere in the system.

Generally, the 4 way hydraulic cross has one input from the booster, one outlet to the rear brakes, one outlet to front right, one outlet to the front left.

Regards
Gerry
