Need to reset the brake light on a 2005 Camry

Completed a brake job and in the process the brake fluid went just below minimum. Added new fluid and removed all the air from the system with the bleed valves, yet the light is still on. Not sure how to reset (turn it off). Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks. I'm going to try to bleed the system again. Any advise on the e-cable adjustment. I had to lossen it to get the old back disks off the lugs. Should it be tightened just enough to keep the new disks in place?

It should go off if the system is full. Otherwise the e-brake cable may need to be adjusted.

    Correct. Just enough to keep them tight, yet apply full brakage when brake is applied.

I need a 1968 oldsmobile torando manual. i have recently finished paying off my beautiful 1968 oldsmobile torando. and she is having some break issues when reversing.please help

I do not have a shop service manual ... but you may have braking challenges in general if this 1968 still has drums up front. This car was notorious for not having good braking (if all 4 wheels had drum brakes).
Anyway ... was the brake fluid real low? ... below the minimum add fluid line? If it was still in the safe zone before you added any more fluid ... then you could have several issues:
  • contaminated brake fluid
  • hole in brake line
  • master cylinder issues
If the fluid was below the minimum .... then there is probably a leak somewhere ... and should be inspected
Does the parking brake still work? That may help you troubleshoot.

I need back rotors on my Jeep. ABS light is on. Is this the cause ?

There are a number of reasons it could be on. Including a bad controller for the ABS, or the sensor not giving the ABS controller a signal.

Light staying on - next to check engine light - it is an exclamation point surrounded by what look like parentheses.

Check your brake fluid level - this light comes on when the brake fluid level has dropped below the minimum level. Usually its because of a leak in the seals of the brake cylinder. Look for oily substance at the inner side of the 4 rims.

Also brake pads can be worn down below the minimum causing brake fluid level to drop below the minimum level.

In any case - make sure the cause of the warning light is known before driving any further.

My ABS light has been on for a while and today I hit the brakes and they turned spongy. Then I pushed the pedal some more and the brake pedal went right to the floor. Then the emergency light came on and I...

I hope you have enough sense to stop driving it and stop added brake fluid

Lets review:

ABS Light is on--You may have an ABS System failure,do we continue to drive it, no
But you did,you said awhile
Spongy brakes--normal,I don't think so
Brakes go to floor--how many things can cause that,maybe 2
Emergency Light--now were in big trouble,no brake fluid
Added Brake Fluid---no fluids are consumed on a motor vehicle
any fluid loss is from a leak and requires repair
You never top off any fluid,don't need to

You have an older vehicle with rusted out brake lines
You need to buy brake tubing,cut,bend,flair and fabricate new ones
No vehicle in history, ever had brake lines made for replacement

ABS and Traction Control Light On

Because the brakes were changed, either one of the sensors were broken when removing brakes or it has set a code. Go to your local autoparts store and have them reset the code. See if it comes back on. If it does you will need to look at the ABS sensors on each wheel and replace if damaged

Brake light on dash won't turn off.

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.

My Brake Light on My dashboard is coming on when I brake, but the fluid is above the minimum level, and I had my brakes looked at less than a year ago. the dashboard brake light comes on intermittently...

You hava very common issue.
The brake fluid contracts when it is cold. The level may be "above the minimum", but being there allows the sensor to activate when it is cold, due to the contraction aspect of the brake fluid...
Add 1 ounce of brake fluid, and you problem will disappear.
A FixYa rating for my assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Rough idle, failing power brake assist

Generally The brake light only indicates the parking brake is on and/or low fluid in level. You are correct that it indicates a vacuum leak recheck ALL vacuum lines you should be able to hear it as well.
