    This is NOT the ABS light. This is the light that indicates the handbrake is on. The light stays on even though the hand brake is off

Fuses keep burning out; rear lights don't come on when brakes are applied. Is there a connection between these two problems?


There is a problem with your question
from what you say the brake lights do not come on when the brakes are applied --that would most likely be a faulty brake light switch
The fuse blows when the hand brake is applied indicates a short after the hand brake switch before the brake indicator in the dash that lets you know the hand brake is applied
you say that the rear light come on when the light switch is turned on--does the fuse blow then , when the brakes are applied or only when the hand brake is applied
a clearer question with a lot of detail ( make , model year , engine size etc)will get a closer answer

My Toyota Harrier 2003 Premium L ABS and Handbrake indicator light is on sometimes but my mechanic has check on the brake pad, brake fluid and others everything seem to be in order but just don't...


Could it be a broken abs speed sensor wire to one of the wheels . And for the hand brake sometimes on vehicles with the handbrake between the seats some junk will get in between the brake lever and the down position causing the light to intermittently go on or could be a switch or wire thing again .

Whats wrong when teh hand brake light comes on when driving


Parking brake may not be fully released. In some vehicles it can also be an indication of something wrong with the braking system. You can also check your owners manual to see if it says anything about this.

Why is brake fluid warning light on but there is brake fluid


From Fiat LOW Brake Fluid / Parking Brake Either the exclamation mark symbol or the 'BRAKE' dashboard symbol may be used on various models of the Fiat 500. Light should illuminate until engine has started. If light remains on, it signifies the parking / hand brake is on, or that there is insufficient brake fluid in the reservoir. If light illuminates and the handbrake is not applied, braking may become defective. Seek assistance from a Fiat technician immediately.

Check to make sure your parking/hand brake is fully released, sometimes the spring that pushes back on the mechanism isn't strong enough, doesn't push back all the way, and the brake indication switch isn't engaged.
The other possibilities are that the float in the master brake cylinder is stuck (if it has one), or the level sensor has failed.

2006 Tacoma faulty Brake indicator light


Please note that the hand brake is NOT the only reason that this light will remain on. It is possible that the light is trying to warn you of an hydraulic failure in your brake system.

Check your brake fluid level to make sure the fluid level is not low. If you find that it IS low, you need to investigate to find out WHY it is low. You shoud never have to add fluid to your brake system reservoir. If it is low, there is a reason for it that needs to be repaired.
If the fluid level is not low and you are certain that the hand brake is fully released, then you could have a bad hand brake switch, a defective fluid level sensor, or shorted/damaged wiring.

No there is a brake switch to turn on the brake lights when you step on the brake pedal. It is located near the rake pedal under the dash. It has more then likely failed.
