I just had my brakes done (all 4 rotors replaced and brake shoes) on my 99 Camry, and when I took it for a test drive, the Brake light was on. The way I got rid of it was by disconnecting the battery for a minute or 2. It reset whatever was causing it to stay on.

Hope this helps.

Cruise will not work on 2008 avalon


Make sure there aqre no warning lights on the dash on, check the brake fluid it needs to be near the full mark, check the brake lights and be sure they are all working, if the cruise indicator light does not turn on check the fuses on the inside dash at the lower left.

My 1998 toyota avalon has a light on the dash that says BRAKE. It only comes on sometimes, like when you get above 40 or early in the morning when it is still cold. What does it mean?


Have you checked the brake fluid. It has a float switch in the master cylinder and it sounds like you need to add some brake fluid.

1995 toyota avalon will not start and gear shift is frozen -just had car serviced yesterday. battery seems good, dash lights come on and there is just a loud clicking sound. Car will not start, gear...


Sounds like a battery problem. The clicking sound is usually the starter solenoid trying to engage the starter but not enough voltage or amps. There has to be enough power or you will not be able to move shifter assuming you pushed the brake pedal down while trying to shift out of park. And, it hasn't been noted whether it is a manual or auto trans.

Emergency brake light comes on while driving and goes off if depress regular brake pedal and let up. what's wrong?


it may be that you your brake fluid is low. the only thing that the brake light indicates is when the parking brake is engaged or when the brake fluid is low. but im about 99% sure its gonna be the brake fluid.

04 Corolla "BRAKE" light on dash--comes on occasionally??


I wouldn't drive it... when your brake light comes on, it means there's a serious fault with your brakes. They may not engage when you brake and there won't be any further warning other than the brake light

95 paseo brake lights flickering and staying on


Look at your brake light switch attached to the upper end of your brake pedal. When the brakes are released your switch should be engaged. I would remove it and check it with a meter to make sure its working normally.

95 sub emerg/parking brake light will not turn off


Only two things should normally activate the light:

Parking Brake engaged switch.

Low Fluid level in master cylinder.

I don't think you did any work to the Parking brake, but you should check it to be sure.

I believe that you would have double checked the fluid level, but please check it again.

Other things that could activate the light would be a worn or leaking master cylinder; improper brake fluid type; a damaged brake booster diphragm .

I have attached a link with excellent info on how a brake system works here.

Also, does the light always stay on, or only when you apply the brakes?
