Default Air leak

I stopped to get fuel and when got ready to leave the low air buzzer was going off. The gauges read 120 pounds of air but buzzer never stopped. I am hearing air leak in the dash.

I don't know if the parking brake knob and valve is located anywhere near the air leaking sound but this could be a possibility check out;

REMEMBER - - - - the DUAL NEEDLE gage on the dash show AIR BRAKE TANKS only - - - not the aux air system where your leak is most likely is.

When I got into the dash I found a switch that was leaking. There are two switches that look alike and I think they run to the air pressure buzzer. Just one wire hooks to the end but the switch itself was leaking air bad. There is no name on the switch or numbers, I am trying to track them down.

Mike do what I did to hIm a few years back. When he's not looking polish one of his wheels. Preferably the passenger side steer.
