My 2006 f150 has new brakes and rotors,fluid full but my dash brake light stays on. Soon as you start it and the whole time you drive. Also the cruise quit too. Once the light went off then the cruise


This sounds like the brake light switch or the control switch on the brake pedal is bad or loose. Check under the dash above the brake pedal there should be one or two switches that tell the brake lights to come on and the cruise control to shut down.

HOW TO GET RID OF THE ABS AND BRAKE LIGHTS ON DASH


Hello, welcome to Fixya!

The ABS and brake lights on your dash board is cause by low brake fluid/oil level. When the brake fluid/level of your vehicle is low, the ABS light and brake light will appear on your dash board, indicating that it needs to be checked.

So open your bonnet and check the brake fluid/oil and make sure it is not low. The brake fluid/oil is the first that needs to be checked in a situation like this.

If the above appears not to be the problem, please let me know.

Regards.

Brake light on dash came on


If the brake light came on it typically is calling out low fluid or the E-brake is on. Check your fluid level and replace with proper fluid. The float may be stuck too causing the light to come on. Also be certain E-brake is fully released.

I hope this may have assited you,

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.

Location of the emergency rear brake switch n a


Hello. I assume that you want to know the location of the switch that activates the brake light on the dash when the park brake lever is pulled. It is under the rear of the park brake handle; you need to remove the console to see it.

However...if your brake light in your dash is staying ON, I would first suggest that you look at the level of brake fluid in the master cylinder reservoir. If it is low, the light will come on, also. The fluid level in the master cylinder drops proportionally as the brake wear. I would bet that your fluid is low; about an ounce of fluid decrease will light up the brake light.

Hand brake light on dash of my 1983 FJ40 will not turn off


Hi. Look at the brake master cylinder. See if the brake fluid is low. If there is a wire and a connector on the side of the reservoir, this is the 'fluid-height sensor' when the fluid is low (as the brakes wear, the fluid level drops proportionally), the fluid level is below the sensor, and creates a circuit, thusly illuminating the light.

Brake light on dash is on. What does it mean?


This Light Indicates 1 of 2 things, 1. Is the BRAKE FLUID Level is LOW, Or 2. That the Parking BRAKE is Applied. Check Fluid and Top Off If Needed, There is A LINE that Shows The PROPER Level.

Brake lights stuck on every now and then and front lights


The brake light on the dash or the brake lights on the rear of the car?

If dash then check the brake fluid. Could be when you move forward it moves the fluid enough to make the light come on. So check and top off the fluid. If really low check your front pads.

if rear lights look at the brake peddle to make sure it is firm and not rudding on teh brake light switch.

Unknown light on dash


It sounds like a brake pad warning light. Sometimes can be linked in with the brake fluid light.
Check the brake fluid level first. If its ok then check the front brake pads. If the pads are worn down the fluid level will have dropped. Also if the fluid level is low the sensor will bring on the light.
