SOURCE: brake level fluid low waringing keeps coming on

If you have to add brake fluid theres something wrong, you might have a fluid leak at one of your wheels, or a line, the master cylinder or you might need to have your brakes replaced, when your pads were down this pushes the piston in the brake caliper out causing the fluid in the brake reservoir to drop

SOURCE: brake fluid low warning came on in 2004 Ford

Whoa, there is a line marked on the fluid reservoir that you do not fill above. Be careful to make sure that you don't get dust/debris inside the reservoir. The owners manual and the reservoir have markings to tell you what type of fluid should be used.

SOURCE: lowlevel brake fluid light comes on.-brake fluid

Try disconnecting the connector from the reservoir. Test the circuit by shorting the terminals in the connector. If putting a shorting pin (paper clip ok) in and out between the 2 terminals makes the light go off and on, the circuit is working, and the switch is bad. If the light stays on even with the connector off, there is a short in the wiring.

SOURCE: brake fluid low level indicator comes on -- when

If you recently had a brake job done, they were not properly bled.
Air in the brake curcuit would cause this situation. If the brake feels spongey, it IS air. Have it rebled.

IP Brake light has come on in my 2004 Kia Sorento.. what does this mean?

Kia Sorento parking brake or brake fluid dash warning light - this light is illuminated when the park brake is applied, the warning light should go out when the parking brake is released. If the light does not go out it indicates that the brake fluid level in the reservoir is low and you need to pull over and top up at your first opportunity.

1-check parking brakes not applied
2-check brake fluid
3-if it is too low have the brakes checked they might be wearing out it doesn't mean you have a leak but when the brakes wear out the become thin causing the caliber piston to push out more lowering the oil level in the reservoir

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.

How do i fix or replace the break light inside my dash. It stays on even when there is nothing wrong with my breaks

The brake light is a warning that your fluid level is low. Check the brake fluid reservoir if the fluid is in minimum level. If the level is okay and it is full, the problem would be float sensor in the reservoir.
Please check the connector of the float sensor if it is connected and try to clean the metal pins( might be full of dirt and grease ).
The float might be stuck to "low" thats why the brake light up( move the float up and down to free it ).
Hope that helps you out.
Thank you for using FixYa!

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.

(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?

Brake light comes on dash when brakeing then off with acceleration

hi 1st thing to check is the brake fluid level is topped up as the reservoir has a sensor fitted to cap so as brake pads/shoes wear the fluid is displaced from reservoir to compensate cylinders hence fluid level falls and puts light on as you brake ? also possibility is that your pads may be fitted with low brake pads warning indicators/wires which also puts same light on as you brake and goes off when you let off to accelerate ? check both of these possibilities if you req more help/advice by all means come back with info

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

Brake light on dash stays on but sometimes goes off when cornering. Whats wrong

Check your brake fluid level. If the level is low, it will cause this. Also- if the level is significantly low, have your brakes checked, or check them yourself. When brake pads or shoes wear down, the level of fluid in the reservoir will drop accordingly with it.
