Question about 1991 Pontiac Bonneville

Brake light on, no problem with brakes.

The brake light came on after a sudden drop in temperature to below 0. I tore brakes apart and nothing is wrong with them. Cant figure this one out.

Fluid level low in master or Float is stuck and giving a false reading. Good Luck

There is a switch above the brake pedal on most cars that control the brake lights and usually ignition and shifting as it is your nuetral safety switch. Try to see if it is adjusted right so the "button" is not constantly depressed

The only thing that both the brake lights and tail lights use is a ground connection. Keep in mind the warning light on the dash may be for any exterior lamp. You may need to check the sockets and grounds on all four corners of the car.

Light staying on - next to check engine light - it is an exclamation point surrounded by what look like parentheses.


Check your brake fluid level - this light comes on when the brake fluid level has dropped below the minimum level. Usually its because of a leak in the seals of the brake cylinder. Look for oily substance at the inner side of the 4 rims.

Also brake pads can be worn down below the minimum causing brake fluid level to drop below the minimum level.

In any case - make sure the cause of the warning light is known before driving any further.

No brake lights on my 02 blazer, i have running, turn, and hazard lights. replaced brake switch and nothing still. theres a auto start system on the truck that came on it when bought used. its hacked in...


Check for 12 volts coming into the brake light switch. If you have that you should have 12 volts exiting the switch when the brake pedal is depressed. If you have that and the center brake light works you have a problem with the turn signal. If the center light doesn't work you probably have an open in the brake light circuit between the turn signal switch and light bulbs. If there is no voltage at the brakelight switch you have an open circuit before the switch. I'm assuming the fuse is good.

Did you check the fuse it is in the side of the dash on passenger side between the dash and the door. And there is one under the hood for relays and large fuses.

First, one wire cannot control the turn signal and brake light, as the turn signal and brake light have to work independently of each other so I would verify the color code for the brake light wire and then check it.

1997 Ford F-350 7.3 L Diesel..........brake failure


With no leaks and a little braking action returning by pumping the pedal I would suggest looking into a master cylinder. Low brake fluid level in the master cylinder will cause the brake warning light to illuminate (possibly, also the ABS light).

If the truck has the 7.3L diesel, it will have a vacuum pump which supplies vacuum for all vacuum accessories. I believe if the vacuum level drops below 10 in. of Hg, the brake light will illuminate. If the vacuum pump fails you'll know it as the brake pedal will require quite a bit of effort to effect any braking effort.
