What does it mean if the brake light in the cab of the truck is on?

It means the emergency brake is on or slightly depressed. Try wiggling it to see if light flickers. Or you are low on fluid, or have a leak and it's sensing the pressure loss.

1996 Toyota 4runner emergency brake light flickers on and off

Plan A. - You have a switch by the emergency brake that engages when the brake pedal is on or off. There is a small round switch like item where the pedal is pressed on. You will see a button, and this button is the switch and at the other end of this button are two wires plugged in. Unplug either one and the light filckering should go away. If it stops filkering then it is either an adjustment of the switch or replacement. Let me know if this does not take care of your issue and I will guide you through plan B

The lights will flicker,but once you turn the lights on they stop.Turning them back off,daytime lights flicker again.I am thinking it is the module, is it easy to get to under the dash?A mechanic told me...

also check your emegency brake, the day time running lights also are controlled by that. try pulling the e' brake pedal up with your hand or foot while pulling on the release handle for the emergency brake,it may only be in need of adjustment. thank you for choosing

Inside dash brake light comes on & off while driving-not flickering

This could be low brake fluid level in the master cylinder or possibly a faulty switch on the emergency brake .

My antilock brake system stopped working and my emergancy brake light is on even though the brake is down. the fluid is fine.

If the parking brake switch is not stuck and the fluid level is OK, try tapping on the fluid reservoir to see if the light flickers or goes off. (you need 2 people to do this) If it flickers or goes off then replace your fluid level sensor. (You may have to buy a complete reservoir or master cylinder depending on your car ) If this does not provide any results, then you may have an internal leak in your master cylinder or Antolock Hydraulic Control Module causing the Proportioning Sensor Switch to turn the light on. At this point. I would tow it to a shop and have the Antilock Control Module scanned to see why it has turned the light on and disabled your Antilock Brake System. I do not recommend driving the car at all until the RED brake warning lamp problem has been resolved. It is OK to operate the vehicle (cautiously) with the YELLOW Antilock brake lamp on.

Brake dashboard gage light flickers on and off

It could be the emergency brake is not fully returned to its off position or the switch on the emergency brake is not correctly adjusted.
