What does the exclamation light mean on the far left of the dashboard on a 2003 ford focus?

first check to see if your parking brake is on, make sure it is fully down, if that is good you will need to check you brake fluid level, top up if low, and i would advise to check brakes on car for worn or leaking components, this does not mean you need brakes, but as friction material wears(brake pads) the caliper holds more fluid so leaving low in master cylinder reservior.. remember if you need to top up, use only dot 3 brake fluid


brake resevior is located only hood open, just below wiper on drivers side

My brake light stays on steady but the fluid level is good and I just had my brakes serviced w/new pads etc...what could be the problem?

There is a mechanical switch on the parking brake which also turns on the dashboard brake light. it may be defective or need replacement.

My parking brake is froozen,lights brakes on always illuminated ;how can i solve this problem? my car is not runing sice 5 years.the engine is ok the gear box is ok .all is ok except tthe parking brake...

if your back brakes are stuck on then jack up back end remove wheels take of parking brake first though and hit drums with hammer or if it has discs remove caliper by removeing two bolts on back of caliper and remove pads use large pliers or grips to squeeze in the 2 pistons then loosely asemble and put on park brake and see if the brakes lock on again if so repeat and try again untill they are free and dont leave a car parked for a long time with park brake on use blocks under wheels or they will seize

Check your brake fluid level in the reservoir; some Toyotas have wheel cylinder sensors; some Toyotas have master cylinder sensors; you also have a sensor on the parking brake and on the brake pedal inside the cab. Check all that.

Brake light flickers while driving down the road.

Check the brake fluid. It may be just low enough to occasionally turn the light on as you hit bumps and it sloshes a little. Add a little brake fluid to the reservoir and check the brake pads all around.

Honda civic ex 2001 parking brake light stays on then goes off

Replace rear brake pads. If that doesn't help, remove the plastic console around the parking brake lever and adjust the pull on the lever. It's probably so loose that it's trigger the light.

This is not normal, looks like someone accidentally drove several miles with the brake on.
