So i searched for this and didnt find much in specific.
Im new to this combination switch and am finding it disgusting.
My question is will the brake bleed tool keep the switch from tripping if i just leave it in ? And of course will my brakes work ?
Thanks in advance.

So are you talking about the proportioning valve? If so the wire connection on there is for low fluid level if memory serves. The brake light switch is at the top of the brake pedal. Any pics of where the brake bleed tool is?

The switch on the proportioning valve comes on when there is a variation in pressure between the front and rear brakes which usually indicates a problem. It does not measure fluid level per say but if you fluid level is low it could effect the valve movement that triggers the switch.

Sounds like i could keep the bleader tool in place as it will prevent a low pressure trip of the valve

This for Wilwood Switch Connections: If your vehicle is already equipped with a brake light switch on the brake pedal, the switch in the combination valve does not need to be used, and it may be removed
