Brake light coming on

When I had my 91 chevy beretta(right before I got rid of it) I noticed my "e" brake light kept coming on and going off at unusal times even when my e brake wasnt up...well now since i got my new 96 beretta, i just started noticing my brake light staying on for a min or two once I put the ebrake down....well what I wanna know is-WHY IS IT DOING THAT? is there something wrong with my "e" brake or the sensors for the brake or what? HELP!!

At the base of the e brake there is a tiny little plunger that operates a ground switch, they get bent and cause this problem

Is there a parts list anywhere for rear brakes for a 1995 chevy beretta


The rear brakes consist of
  1. Drum
  2. Wheel cylinder
  3. Brake Shoes
which you have to get separately at your local part store. The other components can be obtained by purchasing a hardware kit. Which contains springs, keepers, pins....ext One kit contains this hardware for both sides of the rear brake system.

2005 chevy aveo brake light comes on when i shift... why?


your brake fluid is low. I have a 2005 aveo that i took to dealer under warranty and told them the clutch didn't feel right and the brake light kept coming on. they told me they have not seen either issue i complained about charged me 700 dollars in labor and rental fees and sent me on my way. I then proceeded to take it to the used car dealership i bought it from and they bled the clutch and said they got alot of air out when chevy told me they didnt get any. Anyway about 3 weeks later the light was on steady and the clutch began acting funny again. I bled the clutch myself this time and didnt check the fluid level or i would have caught the next dangerous part. On the 2005 chevy aveo hatch back i have with a 1.6 5 speed shares one reservoir for brake and clutch fluid. I was driving along one day down a 12% grade about 2 mile long stretch and my brakes failed. I filled the brake fluid reservoir at first chance i got considering my arm was sore from operating the hand brake for 6 miles or so. the light went out. It will probably come back on as did mine. the leak in my system was a check valve under the brake master cylinder. be careful until you get to fixing it.

My tail lights are on in my 1989 chevy beretta but the car is switch off an it want crank.


Likely your brake light switch has gone bad and the battery has been run down by the lights being on. the switch is above the pedal. Change the switch and re-charge your battery.

96 beretta brake light on but car is running fine


The brake light is probably on because your brake fluid is low. But this is also an indication that you brake pads may also be worn and need replacement. The brake system is designed so when the pads are low the fluid will drop in the brake resovoir and turn on the brake light. So inspect your brake pads or have them inspected. A leak in the brake system could also cause the light to come on. But do not ignore the light and find out why it is on. If the brakes are good and the fluid is low you could add some brake fluid to the resovoir but I would not top it off and if the light comes on fairl quickly then the brake system may have a leak.
