As your brakes wear (get thinner) the level of your brake fluid will go down. This is normal. Otherwise, you may have a leak. check the inside of each tire and wheel to look for wet spots. If you have a leak, get it fixed as it will only get worse and eventually cause your brakes to not work.

Ebd warning light is on, no brakes


Most common cause is low brake fluid or air in antilock brake system due to low brake fluid. Check fluid and top up if low. Other suspects are not so easy. Sensors and wiring and modules and such. Just hope it's only low on fluid.

Parking brake light is on


The light can come on when the brake fluid is low in the reservoir. Check the brake fluid level and add as necessary using only brake fluid from a sealed container.

If the fluid was low check the brakes. Low fluid can indicate a possible leak in the brake system or worn out brake parts.

Brake light coming off and on


Check the fluid level. Low brake fluid level can cause the brake light to come on warning you of low fluid. It will be off when the car is level, but as you hit bumps and hit your brakes, the fluid that is in there will slosh around indicatind low fluid. Don't overfill and only use DoT 3 brake fluid. Do not substitute anything else.

I have a 2002 pontiac grand prix. my e-brake light will stay on when the e-brake is not on.


Check your brake fluid level. Low fluid levels will cause the brake light to come on. If the fluid is not low, there could be a problem with the emergency brake light switch or the brake fluid level sensor.

In my 1999 Ford Escort, the brake light in the dash goes on and off all the time, but mostly stays on. I always check the E brake, but it is not the problem. The car drives as good as always so I'm not...


Check the brake fluid level in the master cylinder. If it is low, you need to find out why it is low. It could be that your brake pads are getting really thin and need to be replaced, or it could be a fluid leak somewhere else in the system.

NOTE: You should NEVER add brake fluid without investigating WHY the fluid level was low. You should never have to add brake fluid to your car.

My brake light is on


I assum you mean the brake light on the dash. That light will come on if the park brake is set even if its partly set. It will also come on if the brake fluid is low. If the brake fluid is low check for leaks or low brake pads but you have to find out why the brake fluid is low.

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.

Brake light displays


Look at the master cylinder fluid level. If it is low, the red brake lamp will come on. Note that as the front brake pads wear, the brake fluid level will drop proportionally. If the fluid level is indeed low, you may need front brake pads, Unless you have a lot of miles on it, I doubt that you will need rear brake shoes. Also, if the fluid is low, don't add any. When you DO have to replace the pads, the additional fluid will be forced out of the cylinder and get all over your engine compartment under the master cylinder area . Brake fluid will eat the paint. Check the brake pads, replace them if the pad material is worn.

Parking brake light


The parking brake and the low brake fluid use the same light. If it comes on during acceleration, your brake fluid level is low and you need to add some brake fluid or replace your pads. The brake fluid gets low as the pads wear as the whole system is hydraulic. Another possibility is a brake fluid leak. As you accelerate, the fluid gets pushed back causing the low brake fluid light to turn on.
