I don't know what year your Ranch is, but most have a simple tab on the parking brake mechanism that goes to ground when engaged. The wire is usually purple/white.

If there is a indicator lamp for the parking brake then there needs to be a switch mounted on the parking brake lever somewhere. ^5 and earlier had no such lamp.

While usually a simple tab, there are a variety of switches used on various Fords, even a plunger style on some models. I would simply track the warning light wire to the switch to find it.

The BRAKE lamp in the cluster indicates service brake failure...not park brake activation. On 67 there should be a seperate chrome bezel low on the dash for parking brake lamp.
