The small wire sensors at the pads are evidently worn or bad or possibly unplugged.Check them, should fix the whole situation.

How can i clear the brake warning light


If it is the red light that says Brake, it could be the parking brake switch or the low fluid sensor on the master cylinder.

2005 GMC Envoy, no brake fluid is getting to the right front caliper. disconnected the brake line where the rubber line and the metal line are attached, pumped brakes and get absolutely no fluid through...


You may have a defective line on the right front brake. GM had a batch of bad lines installed on several year models. I had one collapse on mine with the caliper closed and burned my caliper, rotor and pads. Try to disconnect the metal line further back at the equalizer and see if you get fluid there. If you do replace line.

Break light coming on dash. Goes off and on. Is it safe to drive? What do I check for under the hood? and where?


Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.

We are sorry that you are having issues with your Toyota.

What you are describing, the brake light illuminating on and off may be due to s low brake fluid condition in the brake master cylinder reservoir.

There is a sensor in the master cylinder that monitors the quantity of the brake fluid present. As the brakes wear, the fluid level drops proportionately.

What you can do:
Open the hood, and closely examine the fluid level in the plastic reservoir on the brake master cylinder. It is located at the engine side of the firewall, pretty much in line with your turn signal switch. Look at the side of the cylinder reservoir. There will be a "MAX" line, and a "MIN" line.
The Max is the proper fill level.

If the fluid level is close to the Min line, you probably need some front brake pads replaced.
This indicates a low fluid condition in the reservoir.

We would not suggest 'topping off' the fluid, just to extinguish the light. When you do get your brake pads replaced, the extra fluid will be forced out of the top of the reservoir, and the brake fluid will get on the paint under your hood. Brake fluid will damage your paint.

Suggestion: Get the front brake pads checked, replace them if they are worn.

Thanks for choosing FixYa today.

When do i need to change my brake pads on 116i bmw?


Stick to what your dealer tells you. The brake lining indicator lights when the pads are so thin the rivets will start eating into the rotors in about 1000km.

Hi i have an orange warning light on the but dont know waht it is i dont have a manual it I have a vw passet 2000 the light is a circle with 3 bracket like lines around it in the centre of the dashboard...


On mine i had a circle with some lines around it and it was a brake pad indicator, meaning that the car has determined that you need to replace your brake pads. I have included a link to a picture. your dash may not look like this, but the orange light on the top left is the brake pad indicator light. Hope this helps!

Did you replace the brake pad sensor? If they have not been replaced then you will continue to see the dashboard telling you to replace the brakes.
