Open your hood and look for a small container (5-6 oz) with fluid inside usually close to the front window of the car. On the top it will say Dot 3 fluid only, or something to that effect. This is where your brake fluid goes in. Fill it within 3/4 inch of the top of the "container". You should also check your brakes. It could be your fluid is low, due to your brakes being worn out. Check both front and rear.

Had my tired rotated, since then my Service ESC light comes on along with the brake "brake fluid" light comes on. I'm not sure if it something serious or i just need to unhook my battery and reset it.

check brake fluid level and make sure no leaks if low fill to proper level and check brakes it low change them as to esc when tires were changed workers may have hit sensor or damaged wiring by front end or a bad sensor sometimes rarely some hhr owners state a hiccup and reset the computer and it was fine but before you do that check and make sure brake system is correct and safe usually brake resets itself when repair or fluid is corrected

Brake light and battery light both on?

If these lights are on even when the vehicle is running, then I would check your battery state of charge. Most parts stores can do this for free, and also check to make sure your brake fluid isn't low. Low brake fluid in the master cylinder reservoir will cause the brake light to come on because there is a fluid level sensor in the reservoir. If the fluid is low, it could mean that you either need brakes, and/or you could have a brake fluid leak. I hope this info helps!

Parking brake light is on

The light can come on when the brake fluid is low in the reservoir. Check the brake fluid level and add as necessary using only brake fluid from a sealed container.

If the fluid was low check the brakes. Low fluid can indicate a possible leak in the brake system or worn out brake parts.

I have a 2002 pontiac grand prix. my e-brake light will stay on when the e-brake is not on.

Check your brake fluid level. Low fluid levels will cause the brake light to come on. If the fluid is not low, there could be a problem with the emergency brake light switch or the brake fluid level sensor.

My brake light is on

I assum you mean the brake light on the dash. That light will come on if the park brake is set even if its partly set. It will also come on if the brake fluid is low. If the brake fluid is low check for leaks or low brake pads but you have to find out why the brake fluid is low.

Where do you put the brake fluid in the engine

You never put brake fluid in the engine, brake fluid only goes in the brake master cylinder, which is on the drivers side under the hood, close to the fire wall, will have a small resivor.

Brake lights stuck on every now and then and front lights

The brake light on the dash or the brake lights on the rear of the car?

If dash then check the brake fluid. Could be when you move forward it moves the fluid enough to make the light come on. So check and top off the fluid. If really low check your front pads.

if rear lights look at the brake peddle to make sure it is firm and not rudding on teh brake light switch.
