If the light is for the parking brake check the switch that is above the parking brake pedal assembly. The switch may be bad or out of adjustment.

SOURCE: low brake fluid light remains on even though fluid

was it ever low? if so then the float inside the reservoir is most likely stuck down causing it to keep the light on. if not the float switch may be bad.

SOURCE: add brake fluid light on but fluid not low

Sometimes the float in the master cylinder gets stuck and you have to carefully work it up and down with a screwdriver or something. The switch might be bad on the float too. If the low fluid switch is telling the system that the master cylinder is low, that will cause the "Brake" light on the dash, to come on too.

SOURCE: my 01 impala the trac

Hello: Check the level of the brake fluid in the reservoir under the hood on the drivers side against the bulkhead between the engine compartment and passenger compartment. If it is low your brake pads may be worn or you could have a leak. If the fluid is not low the the fluid level sensor may have failed. The sensor slips in a slot at bottom of the fluid reservoir, to remove release a catch on sensor and push toward the driver side. NO FLUID WILL LEAK OUT.

Brake & low brake fluid lights on-fluid and brakes are ok. also replaced sensor switch lights still on


Check the sensor connection attached to the master cylinder. If there is a good connection, you should replace the fluid level sensor.

The sensor costs $11 and the picture is below. For additional information CLICK HERE

My daughters 2005 4 door elantra has a brake warning light that won't go out.the car was examined and she was told that every thing with that system was working fine and he couldn't say why the warning...


The brake fliud resorvoir may have a sensor on it that is at fault. Also if the brake pads are getting very tin the light will stay on for the brake fluid is low if not filled. Fill the fluid up and see if the light goes off. The sensor if equipt will have two wires for a conection

Low brake fluid light, trac off light, and brake light come on at the same time.


All of these lights are inter related to the brake system, check the brake fluid first, if it's low check the pad thickness, then for a leak.

Brake light stuck on


Are you refering to the brake light on the dash? If so check the brake fluid level in the master cylinder. If the fluid is low it will cause the brake light to stay on.

Brake light is on and chime is on


No the light and chime does not indicate worn out brake pads or shoes.
However, you were correct to add fluid to the correct level.
Just to be clear, you are talking about the red brake indicator light on the dash and is not accompanied by the amber ABS brake light.
If the ABS light is not involved, there is a magnetic switch located in the brake master cylinder. When the fluid level is low, it triggers a switch in the master cylinder and causes the light to come on.
Some times a "gentle" tap on the master cylinder reservoir will loosen the stuck float and turn the light off. One way to verify the switch is causing the issue, you can disconnect the harness connector at the master cylinder and the light should go out.
Start there and let me know.
Regards,

Brake light stays on


check the brake fluid level, if its low the light will be on. Usually when the brake pads wear down the fluid will become low and thats about the time to change the pads. You should be able to add some fluid though and be ok for a bit. If you hear any funny sounds like grinding or squicking (sp) then its time for brakes.
