Several reasons, from minor to serious. It could indicate a brake problem that could result in a loss of braking eventually, so you should have it checked asap. Do the obvious, check your fluid level, and are there any issues with the brakes? Spongy pedal, trouble stopping quickly, brake pedal going to the floor? Your emergency brake being on just slightly can cause the light to stay on, but u say it's flashing, so that's probably not it. If u have any other info (symptoms) let me know now, don't wait! countrycurt0

My inside dashboard lights and back break light suddenly stopped working so cant drive it at night. Its a 99 honda prelude. I've tried changing the light bulbs and the fuse but still not working.


If the dash lights are on the same circuit as the park lights. Chances are if no dash lights... no park lights. Unless the dash light dimmer switch is on the low position. Check park light fuse. If no brake lights... which are on a different circuit and you are sure the bulbs are ok check brake light fuse. If fuse ok, unplug brake light switch at brake pedal and cross the terminals with a jumper. If brake lights work, the brake switch is faulty. If still no brake light operation suspect a wiring issue

Dashboard lights out and also brake lights. does that mean the battery needs to be changed on 1998 Toyota rav 4x4?


I doubt the battery would be the cause.
The dash lights are on a different circuit from the brake lights.
Do you have power at both fuses ?

My dashboard lights dont work


Have someone check fuse under dashboard. Some dashboards have lights wired in series. If one light goes out, they all go out.

My dashboard lights (battery emergency brake light & air bags) are flashing on my dashboard while driving but go out when I come to a stop on my 2001 santa fe


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Dash lights do not turn on when turning on head lights


This is probably a blown fuse. Consult your owners manual for fuse locations. On todays cars, there is often an under the hood fuse location for engine controls and another location inside the passenger compartment for things like dashboards and tail lights. The light that comes on when you put it in drive is probably the brake light. It goes on when you step on the brake and shift into drive.

Dashboard - brake and battery lights on when driving


You have a short on the brake light activation button on by the brake pedal. Clean the connections, make sure they are plugged in all the way. If that doesn't fix it, you probably have a short under your dash somewhere.
