Re: brake lamp is on what does that mean?
DO THE BRAKES FEEL SPONGY? FIRST CK THE BRAKE FLUID,(IF ITS LOW WE HAVE EITHER LOW PADS,FROZEN CALIPER OR A LEAK.RESOLVE THAT FIRST.IF NOT,DO YOU HAVE A SEPERATE EMERGENCY BRAKE LIGHT?CHECK THE BRAKE LIGHT BULBS, THE BRAKEING SYSTEM IS SUPPOSED TO BE SEALED.IF THE FLUID NEEDS REFILL,THAT MEANS IT HAD TO OF GONE SOMEWHERE.CHECK IT OUT.

Yes. The reason it looks like the lights on the rear of the car and the reason it comes on every time you are hitting your brakes, is because your lamp-out module is trying to tell you that you have a brake lamp that is not working. This is normal function if you ave a burned out bulb or a broken wire in your brake lamps. It does not set any codes, so there is nothing to "reset". Just fix the brake lamp and the warning lamp will go away.
I assume you mean the one on the dash. This is an indicator that there is a problem in your braking system. Make sure it's not low on Brake fluid and have the brake system checked or check it yourself. If your going to check it yourself I recommend the Haynes repair manual on your vehicle as a reference.
Usaly the Red brake lamp means your brake system needs service, It will set when emergency brake is moved even the slightest, Or if the brake fluid level is to low. If it is low? Do not top it off, Inspect for leaks, And pad/shoe wear. if all is well then the mastercylender is bypassing and needs replaced
If you mean that the brake warning lamp on the dash board comes on when you press the brake, then its because the brake fluid level is low and/or the brake pads are worn down to the limit.
If you mean that the brake lamps at the rear of the vehicle comes on when you press the brake, then thats how it should work, to let other road users know you are stopping. Hope that helps
The Maint Req Light is only a reminder light to get the Oil changed and fluids checked and what nots.. Its on a timer that must be reset.. Its no big deal if ya had it seviced recently..
