There are two switches on the brake pedal; on NO (normally open) one NC normally closed.
If either change, the system disengages.
The BOO switch goes to the brake lights; the special thing about the center brake light is that it doesn't go thru the MFS (Blinker switch).
I'm not sure anything else is on the other switch at all, thus the need for a load.
A 570 w resistor only needs to be 1W to be at a 2x safety factor; 5W s 10x.
These are 560 ohm, and have mounting flanges for $3.
This is a flame proof design, $0.64ea.
