ABS light stays on if car is started with parking brake engaged.


The ABS light illuminates when there is an "out of specification" condition. From your description, it sounds like your parking brake cable may require tightening, or there may be an issue where the rear brakes are not properly releasing when the parking brake is released. With car that is nearly 20 years old, it is not inconceivable that the rear brakes and parking brake assembly may require regular service.

A good first step would be to have error codes read out by a local mechanic or auto parts store. This may give you a better indication of the specific problem. In any case, ANY brake warning should be taken VERY SERIOUSLY and corrected IMMEDIATELY, as you may have a potentially dangerous potential of catastrophic brake failure. PLEASE GET THE ISSUE FIXED RIGHT AWAY!

"brake" dash light stays on


The light is dual purpose, it shows up when the parking brake is on and when the wear sensors in the brake pads detect that the pads are too low. It could be that you need new brake pads.

The brake light is continually on, on the dash of my 2006 VW Jetta. The emergency brake is all the way down, and yet the brake light is on, and there is a non-stop beeping sound while driving.


If your ABS light is light it could mean several things. First check to make sure that your parking break is all the way down. Secondly, it could be cause by you not having enough fluid for your breaks.

I have a 2006 Chevy Trailblazer, the problem I am having is the brake sensor light will not go off and it keeps beeping. I was low on brake fluid and put some in however the light and beeping will not...


{: ) The brake fluid sensor is very important because it will tell you through the warning indicator if the fluid level is critical, specially while you are driving on road. You can try a few steps just to rule out some possibilities. Better if engine is off, but keep ignition on while proceeding with tests. Transmission in Park position,and the parking brake DISENGAGED fully.

Sometimes its not enough to put some, better complete fill to max level. Check again the sensor light..
If same problem, try to remove the brake fluid sensor connector. Check again.
If the connector has two wires, use a thin jumper wire to connect the two ends. Check again.

If Yes progress, then you need to replace the brake fluid sensor.
If still No progress, return the connector to its place. It's possible the parking brake switch is shorted, or the wires shorted to grouind. The system may need to be checked thoroughly.

Parking Brake


there is a sensor in the brake fluid resovoir. if the fluid gets low, the brake light comes on. i'd say its borderline low and when you go up a hill it goes below the sensor level. add a little brake fluid to the resovoir and see if that helps
