Hi,

Often the handbrake light doubles up as an indicator light warning of either:

  • low brake fluid;
  • some of the brake pads are due for replacement.
Should this be the case, pls check the level of the brake fluid in the reservoir and/or check the brake pad thickness.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

How much would it cost to fix handbreak light it on even when handbreak is on



The handbrake light is also the 'low fluid' warning light. It is connected to the handbrake as that ensures that it is checked every time you use the handbrake. If it remains on all the time, then check the brake fluid and top up if required. If the fluid is ok then it is probably the switch on the lever and is adjustable

This may be caused by low fluid in the master cylinder. Try topping up the master cylinder with fresh brake fluid that's recommended for your vehicle. 1_10_2014_2_26_42_am.png

My car stops just fine..it seems i have great breaks...but the (break outer lining ) warning lights comes on from time to time...is this ok..the car has 200000 miles...runs great...


Hi, though your brakes are fine now, the warning light is telling you the linings are getting thin. If you don't change the linings, the pads will eventually start cutting into the rotors. It is not something you need to do in the next week, but when the light starts staying on, I would get new linings. Thanks for using FixYa.

Handbreak light on dash board remains on even while driving. Also at present fixing break pads had them bleed. Why is the light for the hand break on. Handbreak working just light remains on while driving


hi

it is either the switch under the handbrake is jammed or the fluid level is low or has air in the system, park the car on a hill both up and down to see if the light goes off. get back to me if you need more info.

Handbreak light and stop light with a beep


Check the switch on your handbrake to see if it is loose or has been moved. They are usually somewhere close to the handle under your hand brake boot.

Warning lights


hi

the handbrake light means your handbreaks on you switch might need to be replaced
the battery light means the battery is low on charge either a new battery or alternotor need to know more to answer that one
the curled up wire light could be the engine light

i would say maybe a wire has burnt out of you computer in the car has broken i would get it looked at before driving.
