SOURCE: hand brake

Remove the plastic trim from around the handbrake, and you will see a little magnetic sensor. Simply bend the mount or make an adjustment.

The limit switch is out of place. The light comes on when there is no metal for the magnet sensor to sense (it assumes you have pulled the e-brake).

I shouldn't assume, but I will.

You do have a wiring diagram?

When you say short, I will also guess a fuse blew?

Chevy cavalier - rear brake lights don't work. The center rear brake light does work as well as all other lights. Replaced the bulbs and fuse - no luck. From what I have been told, the turn signal...


Stop Lamp Circuit Description
The STOP HAZ fuse in the IP junction block supplies battery positive voltage to the normally open stop lamp switch. When the driver presses the brake pedal, the switch contacts close and battery positive voltage is supplied to the center mounted stop lamp (CHMSL) and both left and right stop lamp assemblies. The left stop lamp is grounded at G304 and the right stop lamp is grounded at G304.

Handbrake warning light flickers on and off when the handbrake is off.?


The brake light will illuminate when the hand brake is on and when the brake fluid is low. Have you checked to make sure the brake fluid is full in the master cylinder reservoir?

The hand brake light indicator on the dashboard on my Toyota Ipsum 2.0 SXM10 did not go off completely after I released the hand brake knob. The indicator only light dimly and sometime it go off completely...


Check the switch under the handbrake lever, it may be out of alignment or broken or it may have a wire shorting out which is causing the dash light to stay on.

Abs and handbrake icons light at the same time


If the E-brake light is in fact the light that is on. Then you need to find the switch that is attached to the lever. That switch isn't opening when you release the brake lever. Grounding that wire turns the light on. So either the wire is grounded or the switch is broken or out of adjustment.

Mk3 golf handbrake light problem


That hand brake light is also your conventional brake
warning lite. Hopefully its the flimsy connector and switch that is making it flicker. But to play it safe have some one do an inspection of your brake system and if it turns out to be the wiring or the switch we can both laugh about it. This repair is not a biggie at all IF ITS THE SWITCH OR ITS WIRING.

Brake lights don't work when handbrake is not engaged.


I've had a similar problem is so matter what i do the lights would stay on dim. My solution to my problem was that I had a bad/loose ground.

To your problem with the high mount break mount staying on is that you have a loose ground or a tear in the wire.

but since your truck isn't really that old I would first try contacting the Ford dealership asking them if there was a certain recall on this problem of somesort

Hand break light illuminated on dash


if your braking system is ok and its only the handbrake warning light that is on then it sounds like a stuck switch not sure were it is on your car but it should be near to the bottom of the hand brake it is a type of push switch i.e. handbrake in the on position switch will come out relase the handbrake and it will push the switch back in.

hope this helps

The brake lights are not working


could be the wiring connection. i'm sure the three lights came from the same line from the brake switch. so if the third light is coming on, then the connection where they separated should be tyraced. or the ground of the side lights could be missing,. check the ground wire of the side lights for proper grounding.
