Question about 2004 Toyota Corolla

04 Corolla "BRAKE" light on dash--comes on occasionally??

The "BRAKE" indicator light on the dash of my 2004 Toyota Corolla has started to come on occasionally for short periods of time and then go off. I've checked to ensure that the emergency brake is fully released. This only just started a few days ago, and it happened again this morning on my 65-mile drive to work. The owner's manual says, "stop immediately and contact a Toyota dealer."

Can I drive home safely this afternoon to my local mechanic?
Thank you. --Christopher in Tampa

I wouldn't drive it... when your brake light comes on, it means there's a serious fault with your brakes. They may not engage when you brake and there won't be any further warning other than the brake light

    Check your brake fluid level as well as that will cause the light to come on if it's low... also have some one stomp on the brake pedal as you look under the car to see if there's any fluid squirting onto the ground....
