I think i need to put brake fluid in my 1993 nissan altima(2.4) because the brake light stays lit and the fluid level appears to be low. how do i remove the seal cover to pour in the brake fluid and top it off?
U should just be able to twist the top off like opening a bottle, it should be marked on the side of the tank how much to put in just be sure not to put to much, for this can cause problems too. hope it helps

Possible brake fluid level warning sensor problem in the master cylinder. Disconnect the wiring harness from the sensor in the master cylinder. If the light goes out, suspect the sensor. If the light continues to illuminate dimly, suspect a short to power in the harness on that circuit. Further diagnostics will be required to locate the problem
the brake fluid reservoir is on the drivers side of the engine back by the firewall. I believe the cap is yellow and should say brake fluid or DOT3 or something simular. Use only DOT3 or DOT4 brake fluid from a sealed container.
You can also consult your owners manual to find it.
actually barry before i pulled out the console i think i would take a long look at the pedal or lever which you push or pull to put the brake on. I'll bet you find a button switch attached to it somewhere, which completes a circuit and supplies 12 volts to a light in the console. However I could be wrong and a look through a manual could set you straight before you turn a wrench
hello, check make sure, emergency brake handle is all the way down, check brake fluid, usually when light comes on you are low on brake fluid, also have front brakes,rear brakes checked out, you may need new brakes on front or rear, make sure there is know brake fluid leaking from your master cyclinder under the hood where you put fluid in brake resivor
if the fluid resevoir is still full i would check the emergency brake to see if it is engaged one or two clicks, which would not cause the brake to slow or stop the car but would cause the light to come on..
Check your brake fluid level in the engine compartment. Its located on the rear RH side of the engine compartment, its a white/clear resevoir connecting to a large black circular object. If the fluid is low, fill to proper level, also I would recommend having your brake system checked as there may be a leak. If the fluid is fine and at the proper level, you may have a damaged/broken brake fluid level sensor or damaged/broken Emergency brake switch. Hopefully this helps....please rate thanks!!
Try this, Since you are applying the hand brake. Manually pull up on the emergency pedal and see if the light goes out. If this does work then you could have one of several problems. but, I am thinking that you might be able to adjust the brake tensioner if this car has one.
