1994 Chevy Silverado Brake Warning Light on Over 30mph

Anytime I drive over 30mph my brake warning light will come on. The fluid, pads, and shoes are good. Could this be a speed sensor issue? This truck does not have ABS.

Bad sensor in one wheel, they are part of the wheel bearing. Could also be a bad abs computer module, either way, not cheap.

ABS light comes on with ignition then should go off when you start the car.
If abs sensor does not turn off after disconnecting the battery, then there is a real problem, a faulty sensor or ABS malfunctioning.
When the ABS led comes on immediately after you start the car and stays on usually is one of the relays.
The main one is called surge arrester relay, if it is faulty usually there have been an overvoltage.
There should be two more, usually located behind the black plastic cover of the ABS.
Testing and changing the faulty relay can fix the problem.

If light turns off on startup, and comes back on when you reach some speed, usually you need to check the wheel sensors. You test them unplugging the sensor located behind the wheel and testing it for continuity with a multimeter.
Use Haynes manual to find locations and specs of relays.
Contact a qualified mechanic if you cannot fix it yourself, problems with ABS may compromise safety of the vehicle.

Try this, Since you are applying the hand brake. Manually pull up on the emergency pedal and see if the light goes out. If this does work then you could have one of several problems. but, I am thinking that you might be able to adjust the brake tensioner if this car has one.

Rear brakes not working proper. I have never liked the brakes on my 2500 chevy pickup. I bought the truck second hand. I have since replaced the front pads twice. The front pads were gone in 18,000...


e-brake pedal should go farther- is either out of adjustment or cable frozen- secondly sounds like only front brakes receiving enough pressure to "activate" properly- bleed all four brakes starting rear pass,then rear drive ,then front pass, then front drive- use plenty of fluid- bleed till fluid is clean without bubbles- will that long at first- this will insure not bubbles and no moisture- if a pro valve dies,you would have more problems- pedal would be really soft,would have both a brake light and abs warning lights

The brake light indicator light is on even after changing bulbs. What else will cause the warning light please?


Check your brake fluid, there is a level sensor in the brake fluid reservoir, if the fluid is low it's usually a sign that you should check your brake pads/shoes for wear, if the pads and shoes are ok, then top off the brake fluid and keep an eye on it for leaks (just make sure it doesn't get low again quickly).

Clio 2002 authentique 1.2 8 valve stop light & hand brake light stay on in the dash can anyone help!


hi from uk the stop/handbrake light has two warning functions it will illuminate when hand brake is applied or is left on whilst driving or not fully off position ?? the other function is it is warning you that your brake fluid in the reservoir is low/requires topping up ? if it is low ? this could be due to a fluid leak ?either from pipes or wheel cyl's/calipers ? OR ? just that as your b/pads and shoes wear lower then fluid from reservoir displaces from res to cyl's to compensate for wear so may i suggest you 1st check fluid level+top up if low? then check for leaks as above more important have your brake pads and rear shoes or pads if fitted checked for wear/safety i advise this considering age/milage? of car and if you have no record of being checked/replaced recently? if your brake pads are fitted with low pads wear indicators this will also give warning hope this helps? good luck !

(I)(P)Brake light on


hi from the uk this warning light has two functions 1st it comes on when park brake is on then goes off as p/brake released the other function of this light being on ? is a warning that the brake fluid level in the reservoir is low the sensor is on the fill cap however! low level may be a fliud leak ? orsimply the level has dropped over time due to as the brake pads and rear shoes wear down then the fluid displaces from reservoir and compesates for the wear and fluid keeps the w/cylinders always topped up automatically may i suggest you check your b/pads and shoes are not too low for safety if so then renew asap also make sure there is no sign of fluid leaking on brakes especially the rear cyl's and actual b/pipes hope this helps?

hi from uk the brake indicator warning light you mention has two functions it indicates thet the h/brake is either on or not fully off ? and is also an indication of the brake fluid level is low this may be either your car has a brake fluid leak ? somewhere or more than likely considering age of car the brake pads/shoes are worn low resulting in the displacement of fluid from reservoir to take up wear of pads operated by calipers/cylinders ? also if pads are low ?thenyour car may have brakepads worn very low indicators on the actual pads these are wires fitted on pads this too is a most probable cause of indicator illuminating ? SO asap check the above i have mentioned b4 you continue driving for any distance

Have your brakes check out, could be getting low on brake pads or shoes, which will make your brake fluid get low, to make up for the space of wear of your brake pads or shoes, check and fill your master cylinder to the max level mark.Being that the brake fluid is low the sensor in the master cylinder will make the warning light come on.Fill and have your brakes checked.

The parking brake light is on and the parking


hi from uk if as you say the brake fluid level is slightly above min ? then this is most probably the reason the warning light is on this light is also linked to both park brake when on and a visual warning via a sensor on the reservoir that brake fluid is low top reservoir up ? light should/will go off however! fluid level drops for two reasons = 1 fluid leak on b/system 2 or in your case the fluid level has dropped by displacement from reservoir to brake calipers/cylinders as the brake pads and/or shoes wear down to minimum safe thickness ? and if your car has brake pads wear indicators fitted to pads these sensors will put light on SO may i suggest you check your brake pads/shoes ASAP because if pads/shoes are very low ? you may not only damage the more expensive disc/rotors but pads may/will burn up resulting in brake failure with obvious results ? hope you heed this advice? it is for your safety and other drivers best wishes

Parking brake light turns on while driving down the road. with the parking brake off.


hi from uk if you are saying the parkbrake warning light on dash comes on whilst driving ?? this light/warning is also linked to the brake fluid reservoir level and if level is low ? it will cause parkbrake light to come on the low fluid level may be simply the displacement of fluid as the brakepads/shoes wear thin over time so req's topping up however !if fluid is very low? may i suggest you make sure you do not have a leak somewhere ie cylinders? considering age of vehicle might be worth checkingbrke pads if not recently replaced ? and renew them if req'd? hope this helps ?
