SOURCE: Left rear brake light stopped working but bulb and fuses are OK.

These are Dual Function Bulbs. They control the Parking Lights and the Brake Lights. This Bulb is Burnt out on the Brake Coil inside the Bulb. I have actually seen Bulbs that were Bad But you could not Tell by jast looking at them. It should be fine with a New Bulb. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Brake fluid low light


Could be the sensor for the parking brake. Even if the fluid is full.

My brake lights stay on after I turn off the car


Hello,

If the light is on all the time, it could mean you simply forgot to release the
parking (emergency) brake. The brake warning light remains on when the brake is set
as a reminder. If the brake warning light remains on when the parking brake is
released, then something is amiss.

In some cases, the brake warning light may remain on if the switch on the parking
brake pedal or lever is misadjusted. Nothing is wrong with the brakes and a simple
adjustment should fix the problem.

If the brake warning light comes on when you apply the brakes,
or is on continuously, it means that hydraulic pressure has been lost in one side
of the brake system or that the fluid level in the master cylinder is dangerously
low (due to a leak somewhere in the brake system).
In either case, the fluid level in the master cylinder should be checked.
Adding brake fluid to the master cylinder reservoir may temporarily solve the
problem. But if there's a leak, the new fluid will soon be lost and the warning
light will come back on.

Brake fluid leaks are serious because they may cause the brakes to fail!
So avoid driving the vehicle until the system can be inspected to determine what's
wrong. Leaks can occur in brake hoses, brake lines, disc brake calipers,
drum brake wheel cylinders or the master cylinder itself.
Wet spots at hose or line connections would indicate a leak that needs to be fixed.

Leaking brake fluid can also contaminate the brake linings,
causing them to slip or grab. The uneven braking action that results may cause the
vehicle to veer to one side when the brakes are applied. Brake shoes or pads that
have been contaminated with brake fluid cannot be dried out and must be replaced.

Hope this helps.

My brake light did not warn me that i needed brakes


someone probably topped off your brake fluid when your brakes were low. the only way i know is to have new front and back brakes then make sure the brake fluid level is right . the light only comes on if your brake fluid goes low so the system has too much fluid if it says full and your brakes are not new front and back

The dashboard parking brake light comes on while driving and I have checked to make sure the brake has been fully released. What could be the problem?? It doesn't stay on, it comes on and off.


Look at fluid level, some systems invoke the parking light for low fluid. I presume to confuse you. I think the thinking works like this: When you have full new brakes and full M/C by the time the M/C fluid gets consumes by prake pad consumption, the light goes off. If you replaced the front pads, the fluid gets pushed back into the M/C resovoir, and the light goes out. Bet that you are pretty close to needing pads, presuming no leaks or other issues.

I depressed brake pedal with parking brake on... it went to the floor & brake warning light went on... brake fluid appears okay. 1996 cavalier


If there's no leaks ( check back of tires ) your master cylinder is by passing, replace master cylinder and bleed brake system to get all air out of new master cylinder. ( bench bleed master cylinder first ).

Can I drive my car home ( 50 miles) with the brake warning light on?


You sure can, but you might be chancing creating a life threatening situation. That light will go on when the level of the brake fluid in the master cylinder reservoir gets low, as it does eventually even on normal cars. Check the level of the brake fluid. It is probably low, so got some more fluid from Checkers, Auto Zone, or whoever, and fill it to the 'full' level. The light probably will go out. If it loses more fluid on a frequent basis you have a leak somewhere and have to take it to a competent shop and have them find it.
Best of luck!

Brake warning light came on on my 2005 chrysler town and country Van


If it is the (BRAKE!) light the sensor in the master cylinder is sensing that the vehicle is low on brake fluid. Very seriously check the mastercylinder and be sure that the fluid is full. If the light is on, and the fluid appears full the sensor in the master cylinder may be stuck and giving the computer a false reading. If the fluid is low, fill with fluid and get the vehicle to a service center, when the fluid is gone so are your brakes so be careful.
