    always a good safety check for brake lights functioning, but I don't think your model notices and reports a brake light out...thanks for the follow up:)

Why do i hear a dinging sound when apply brakes on 1996 dodge grand caravan ??

Noise is caused by brakes wearing. Either brakes shoes are worn, disc is out of round. Sound you hear is metal rubbing on metal, never a good sound. Contact auto repair or brake shop for repairs immediately

I have dofge caravan 2002. Breake light stay on all the time, even if the breake padel is not pressed

Check your brake fluid level!! This is usually a warning light when your brake fluid gets too low. This could be due to normal pad wear in which case you will need a brake replacement or it could be due to a leak in the system letting the fluid run out of the vehicle. Either way you need to get this fixed ASAP, no brake fluid = no stopping.

Oil light comes on and dings when the brake is put on or the van is stopped

Oil pump is wearing out. This is not an issue as long as it only happens at idle or unless you plan to get a lot more miles out of the van.

Sounds like you have pushed the brake peddle to the floor after you changed the pads. This can cause major probs in the master cylinder. The brake warning light should come on if this is the trouble. Frankster016
