Float in master is sticking an maybe giving you a false reading. HOWEVER MAKE SURE THAT ALL BRAKE COMPONENTS ARE GOOD PADS ETC. To fix float open cover and master and make sure that the float moves up to the top of fluid when cap in on may need to move with hand to free up float. Make sure wire plug for sensor is plugged into master. Good Luck and Thanks for using fix ya

Going up a hill, traction and break lights comes on (service traction-break fluid) message on my screen, got to top of hill and slowed down, lights came off. 2008 pontiac g6

Make sure your brake fluid is at the correct level. Any issue with the brake system will cause the traction system to not work as traction control works by modulating the brake on the wheel (s) that are slipping. If fluid level is fine then the sensor for the fluid level may be bad.

The "Service Engine Soon" light

Hi, there are a lot of things that can set the light. When there are no symptoms, you have to get a scan to find out what it is. If your car is 1996 model or later and you live in the US, you can get a free OBD2 scan at your local parts chain. Write down the code and send it to us for analysis and advice. OK?

The emergency brake light sometimes goes on when accelerating and when going up hills.

You just need to add some brake fluid to the reservoir. The float switch turns on the light when the car is not leveled because the fluid is low.

Hope this helps,

you might want to have a radiator shop run a flow test on the radiator to make sure it isn't partially plugged up. it is almost impossible to guestimate if it is plugged up partially without a flow meter. and on most computer controled engines the sensors depend on the thermostat to keep the temperature within the operating range of the sensors.

I HAVE A 1998 dodge ram 318 1500 two wheel drive the abs and brake light come on but it brakes fine when the brake light and abs light go out i have to really push the pedal down to stop the petal feels...

you need to check the break fluid level now
i do think it is too late tho
what it sounds like is air in your break system
you need to bleed the breaks not doing so can damage the break booster
you need to add fluid to the booster now as it will help and may not need bleeding
if you keep driving the way it is you may loose your breaks all together which is a danger to you and others
you need to have this attended asap it is not a hard job or expensive job
when you put fluid in the car pump the breaks every time you need to or they get soft this forces the fluid through the pips altho the air may have no where to escape which is why we bleed them to let the air out
hope this helps
