I had this same problem on my ES300. The brake fluid in the brake fluid reservoir was BARELY under the full line and this was causing the brake light to illuminate believe it or not. Some ES300's are just more sensitive than others. I went ahead and removed the inner plastic screen and sucked out as much of the fluid as I could using a turkey baster and then refilled with fresh fluid all the way to the fill line and the light never cam back on.Remember, even if it's just a millimeter below on these certain sensitive models it can set it off. Other people might have the identical car and not have the issue. It just depends. Replacing the fluid as I did may not be necessary and a simple fill might do but it would be a good idea to go ahead and fill the reservoir with fresh fluid.

Is the fluid low.Un plug the sensor on your brake fluid resvior and see if the light goes out if it does then your fluid level is low or the float might be stuck.Or your e-brake is causing the light.

Proton Savvy 1.2 2008. Following a service the ABS and Brake light keep coming on? No fluid loss and brakes seem fine. Can anyone advise please?


-You're okay to drive. Just quick check if the brake fluid is full or not.
If Not then top it to full line. Even the ABS is not working, the basic
brake still work as regular car.

Good Luck

Brake lights wont work on 1996 es300 lexus fuse is good and rear brake light in window works.


My guess would be the turn signal switch. The third brake light does not go thru the signal switch but power for the brake lights do.
You would want to check for power in and out of the multi-function switch with a meter.

2003 lexus es300 won't start... radio lights and windows work. Tried a jump start, still doesnt work...


Are you saying the engine cranks but won't start, or the engine won't crank ?
If the engine does not crank, you would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch as well as the ground connections.

Blown fuses


The problem is simple and you could possibly repair it yourself. the sensor on the brake master cylinder (front side protruding down from the bottom) is shorted out. This sensor turns off the cruise control when the brakes are pushed. You only have to unscrew the old sensor and replace it with the new one. You will notice that the old sensor has has brake fluid all through out it. this is the reason for the short. BTW you will lose a little brake fluid in the process so have the new sensor ready when you take off the old sensor. I know this doesnt sound like it could possibly be the reason but it is. hope it helps
