The Brake warning light comes on. I checked the brake fluid level in master cylinder & it was okay. The fluid looked dirty. Please help

Sharon, Check to make sure emergency brake is not on and fully released, try not to drive your vehicle if the red brake warning light is on. Could have air in the system from a small crack in brake line, faulty master cylinder, faulty caliper etc. Have a good tech. check braking system, diagnose and estimate repair.

What does it mean when your fuel light and battery light comes on at the same time.

its best to include a year make and model but it could be a fuel sending unit, bad battery, battery going bad, or something like a bad connection somewhere. also, it would be a good idea to scan for codes at a reputable shop. i will be able to give you more specifics from there.. in the mean time. disconnect both battery cables and charge up your battery. then re install, make sure connections are tight and try to start. let me know what happens.

1999 kia sportage battery and emergency brake come on when i start the car

Usually the battery warning light means the alternator is not charging the battery. On some models the battery and brake lights are wired together.
Check your owners manual for details.

Dreaded three warning lights, brake, abs, andtraction triangle sometimes on sometimes off. Help!

No different or troubling than any other vehicle issue
or fault

When you start the motor & ANY dash light stays on or comes
on when driving, you check for OBD Codes within a day or stop
using it,that simple

Once you have the codes & google them, to see the possible
fault or ask the questions about the codes at a repair shop,you
have a shop diagnose the vehicle to see what the problem is

It has been that way for 15 years--1981 thru 1995 & more
recently another 20 years 1996 thru 2015

So I fail to see why 90% of the vehicle questions even come here

No one cares to educate themselves apparently,really-- 34 years--
in the learning !

No one owns or read an owners manual

Hate repair shops also, I guess,they must take your money
& do nothing,why else do people ride around for months &
do nothing !

Dash board warning of doors open when doors are closed

most likely it is just the simple fix.....that is why they say: Keep it simple stupid! Check the door switches that engage when the door is closed. Try spraying them with Electrical cleaner/lube.

THis morning I noticed 2 triangles, car inside with swiggly lines but the left side triangle had a spanner next to it outside. I drove for about 20 miles, stopped to purchase something then when I...

{: ) The two triangles you saw is for the StabilTtrak system,, sometimes called the traction control indicator. When you see a spanner beside it, it means the system needs servicing.
StabiliTrak will turn off automatically if a problem is detected in the system. For vehicles without a DIC, the StabiliTrak light and the StabiliTrak service light will both come on. If the StabiliTrak service light does not clear itself after restarting the vehicle, you should see your dealer for service.
