    Just the same, I would pull the plugs out and crank the engine until the oil pressure light goes out. That will get oil to the various parts with little / no load.

    If your switch is the same as mine, sticking out of the back of the master cylinder, short a screwdriver across the terminals and see if the brake light comes on. If so, replace the switch.
