Question about 1999 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

Brake indicator light stays on

The brake indicator light and chime stay on while driving, even when brake is not engaged. Light goes off when stopped but comes on again when excellerating and shifting into second gear and goes off again when stopped. If I accelerate hard out of a turn I can make it go off but the next time the car shifts it comes back on. I removed the fuse and that stopped the chime, but it also cut out my sentinle headlights. Any advise would be greatly appriciated. Thanks it is a 1999 Buick Lesabre Custom

Hi the RED BRAKE LIGHT is also for low brake fluid
check the brake fluid level in most cases if the brake fluid is low you need the brakes replaced

Brake light stay on, what would be a problem. some time it goes of.


If it comes and goes, I am going to guess low brake fluid.

Other things that can set the light off. Wear indicators on pads, but they don't usually go off once on.

Check the warning sensor adjustment as the eb system may be worn enough to set it off if the adjustment is too close.

97 brake light chime


Several possibilities here, First, if your parking brake lever is even slightly engaged your brake light will be on. so check the cable and switch to make sure it is not this. Second is the brake pressure switch on the master cylinder, the switch could be bad or your lines may need bleeding. and last, unless there is a separate light for it you anti-lock brakes could have an issue, which I would recommend a qualified mech look at that.

Im having a chiming problem with 1994 buick park ave.the brake light stays on and wont stop chiming even if i pull the fuse. i think i must replace the rotors,could that be the problem?


Not for sure on rotors, but you may try pulling up on the e-brake pedal. I had that problem with a ford and thats all it was. Hope this helps.

Cruise control will not engage even though the indicator on the Cruise on/off switch is illuminated.


Check that your brake lights are staying off. Brake light switch will put your cruise control into coast mode.

1995 Buick Park Ave. Brake light remains ON and chimes on driving


The problem is the car think the park brake is on (intermittently). I would check the park brake switch, perhaps it's loose, or perhaps the park brake is pushed down to the first "click" spot. Also check the wiring connection to the switch, and the wiring nearby. Good luck!
