The light you see on the dash may cover other things too.Do you have your manual in the glove box.Check in it to see what is covered by the light you see on the dash.A brake warning light on the dash could be low fluid warning,but could also be a emergency brake not released fully,a service brake problem or an ABS problem etc.
Kia Sorento parking brake or brake fluid
dash warning light - this light is illuminated when the park brake is
applied, the warning light should go out when the parking brake is
released. If the light does not go out it indicates that the brake fluid
level in the reservoir is low and you need to pull over and top up at
your first opportunity.
1-check parking brakes not applied 2-check brake fluid 3-if it is too low have the brakes checked they might be wearing out it doesn't mean you have a leak but when the brakes wear out the become thin causing the caliber piston to push out more lowering the oil level in the reservoir
what kind of warning light do you mean and what illuminating color is RED or AMBER is it check engine light,brake light,temperature, if is (!) then you have either worn brakes,low brake fluid due to brake ware. Check in your engine compartment the brake fluid level by the servo side and see whether the level is on Maximum if is not then surely check your brakes.
Please also note that the low fluid level sensor in your brake master cylinder will also make this light come on. If the brake fluid is low in the master cylinder, you need to find out WHY! There is either an hydraulic leak in the system or the disc brake pads are worn VERY thin. Then again, the low fluid level sensor could be faulty.
There is also a difference in brake systems available in your vehicle. If you do not have a fluid level switch in you master cylinder, there will be a pressure differential switch mounted between the fluid lines just below the antilock brake module. If this switch is causing the brake light to come on, it is usually because of a fluid leak somewhere in the system. If the hydraulic pressure on one dide of the switch or the other drops for some reason, it will cause the piston in the switch to shift to the side and turn the switch on. Again, you vehicle may be equipped with one or the other - you simply have to look.
To find out if it is the low fluid level switch, the pressure differential switch` or the parking brake switch, just unplug each of the switches to see if the light goes out.
If it actually is the parking brake switch, it is usually because the parking brake lever assembly is malfunctioning or you may have a stuck forward cable that is not allowing the pedal to return to the full UP position. Parking brake lever/pedal assembly failures are pretty common. I have changed quite a few of them.
someone probably topped off your brake fluid when your brakes were low. the only way i know is to have new front and back brakes then make sure the brake fluid level is right . the light only comes on if your brake fluid goes low so the system has too much fluid if it says full and your brakes are not new front and back
This symbol is your brake warning
light, which resembles a brake drum with two brake shoes on each side. Your emergency brake may be engaged or your brake
fluid is low. Engage your emergency brake and release it to see if that fixes
the problem. Next item to check is your brake fluid level. If it is your brake fluid,
and it continues to give you the warning after refilling the brake fluid, you
could have a leak in your system.
