It's been since the mid 90's since I actually worked on this system. But, no, I don't remember a light that told you it was set. But when it was set, you sure weren't going anywhere. The brakes were set solid. If I remember correctly, you flipped the lever or pushed the button to lock it, then you pressed the brake pedal down. Then the brakes were locked. Most of the time brakes stayed locked indefinitely, but every once in a while they would bleed off. Not while the truck was running though, just when parked for a while.
