Is the vehicle hard to drive (lack of power) then the brakes are binding up ,if not then the brake light switch requires adjustment .How ever if we are talking of the Hand brake light on the dash it likely that the brake fluid is low and the brake pads are worn out.

How do I take off thebrakes pressuer switch

Hi Tom:
If you open the hood (bonnet) and look at the brake master cylinder there should be an electrical connection. The thing on the cylinder that the wires connect to will be the switch.
I'd try unpluging it and then use a continuity meter to try to check the switch function.
DEFINITELY replace the switch if it is not functioning correctly.
It would be DANGEROUS to simply dis-connect it and then drive without brake lights.

My break lights stay on my car is a Toyota corralla 1993 how dangerous is it to drive or even move the car?

Check the brake light switch under the dash above the brake pedal. It might have moved out of adjustment or is defective. Replace or adjust it. Not major dangerous but annoying to others someone not watching could hit you from behind when you stop.

Light of ABS is always on . on my Golf 2001 manual diesel. I have had no problem with ABS but light stays on since 1 year ago, Can I turn it off

Only way to turn it off would be to remove the ABS sensor (bad idea and potentially dangerous) or to replace the brake sensor. The part runs between $40-60 and is relatively easy to install.

The ABS light is an indication of your Anti-lock Brake system malfunction, not meaning your brake system will fail, the ABS keeps the brakes from locking up during bad weather (rain and snow) they can still stop the vehicle but you stand a chance of locking up as in older vehicles without this option...hope that helps!!

First before driving check brake fluid level, if low you could lose your brakes and have an accident. Brake fluid is in a closed system and should not be low. Don't drive until you have someone with some knowledge check car. You could have a leak which would be extremely dangerous to drive.

Yellow brake light on mini cooper is on

I would follow the instructions in the owner's manual for this warning light. Sounds like (but don't know) low brake fluid pressure -- which could lead to a brake failure. That's why there is an exclamation point, I guess.

Not a bad idea to stick with the dealer.
