I assume you mean the brake light on the dash board.
It may mean you are low on brake fluid or that your brakes are worn and need to be replaced. It can also mean other things. For sure it means you need to get it fixed immediately. I'm guessing if you are asking this question you won't be able to fix it yourself. Don't take risks with your brakes. Book it in and get it fixed. Don't drive it until you do. No brakes = death.

IP Brake light has come on in my 2004 Kia Sorento.. what does this mean?


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

On my 2008 ford escape, there is a light on my dashboard that keeps coming on. it looks like a box with an exclamation mark in the middle. i dont know what that means. im wondering if i need a tune up or...


Brake warning light.

If the light is on all the time, it could mean you simply forgot to release the parking (emergency) brake. The brake warning light remains on when the brake is set as a reminder. If the brake warning light remains on when the parking brake is released, then something is amiss.
In some cases, the brake warning light may remain on if the switch on the parking brake pedal or lever is misadjusted. Nothing is wrong with the brakes and a simple adjustment should fix the problem.
If the brake warning light comes on when you apply the brakes, or is on continuously, it means that hydraulic pressure has been lost in one side of the brake system or that the fluid level in the master cylinder is dangerously low (due to a leak somewhere in the brake system). In either case, the fluid level in the master cylinder should be checked. Adding brake fluid to the master cylinder reservoir may temporarily solve the problem. But if there's a leak, the new fluid will soon be lost and the warning light will come back on.

The anti lock brake light and regular brake lights are on, in my 2001 mitsubishi montero limit truck what does that mean


Hello,
First this means you should not drive it until the repairs are done. Your brakes very well may not respond with both warning light indicators lit up. So one light is for your brakes and one is for your ABS system. The ABS light on means there is a malfunction in your ABS system. A sensor or something in the wiring. Now this light on alone indicates the need for a repair but the car could be driven temporarily. The ABS system makes your brakes fluctuate so "locking up" is avoided. The Oil light itself means something in your brake system is malfunctioning and hydraulic compression could be lost anytime. Both together is not good. I recommend first you check the brake fluid in your car. If it is below what it should be then this alone could set the Oil Light on. A brake light out could set your ABS light indicator on as well. So check the two things and if you are lucky this could fix each light. If not then you need to have this addressed by a auto technician as soon as possible.
Regards, Tony

When i go to brake i have a brake light that comes on what is this and what does it mean.


could mean your brake fluid is low, check your fluid and if you need to add fluid and see if the light still comes on. If it does inspect your break pads or check to see if emergency brake is on.

My brake and anti brake lights stay on all the time


CHECK ALTERNATOR OUTPUT IT SHOULD BE 13.5 TO 14.5 VOLTS WITH ENGINE RUNNING.IF VOLTAGE LOWER 12 VOLTS THAT WILL CAUSE BRAKE AND ANTI LOCK BRAKE LIGHTS TO COME ON BECAUSE THAT NOT ENOUGH POWER FOR ABS BRAKES OPERATION.IF ALTERNATOR GOOD.BRAKE AND ABS LIGHTS ON ALSO MEANS LOW BRAKE FLUID LEVEL CHECK BRAKE FLUID LEVEL.ALSO. YOU HAVING BRAKE FAILURE.YOU NEED TO HAVE GARAGE OR DEALERSHIP CHECK BRAKES SYSTEM.BEFORE BRAKES COMPLETELY FAIL.
