There is a sensor in the brake fluid resovoir. if the fluid gets low, the brake light comes on. i'd say its borderline low and when you go up a hill it goes below the sensor level. add a little brake fluid to the resovoir and see if that helps

Parking light wont go out and keeps dinging


Reach down and release the parking brake at the same time pull up on the parking brake pedal. Sometimes the pedal gets bumped just enough to engage the switch indicating the brake is engaged.

Adjusting the parking brake on a MiTSubichi ENDEAVOUR 2005


If your parking brake is too loose or is not properly adjusted, you may encounter problems while parking, positioning and driving your car. Most of the time, car owners would send their car to a mechanic in order to fix and tighten the parking brake. However, you can actually skip this step and adjust your parking brake yourself. When your car starts to slip on a hill in its park position, you need to start tightening the parking brake.1 Remove the car's center console cover placed around your parking brake level inside your car. This is found between the seat of the driver and the front passenger.2 Use your wrench to turn its adjuster nut found at the end of your parking brake's cable rod. Loosen the adjuster nut with your wrench, while making sure that it does not come off at your parking brake cable rod's end.3 Raise your car rear wheels using your jack, and use your jack stands to support both its rear wheels.4 Pull up your parking brake handle up to two clicks or notches. Tighten your adjuster nut until you feel a slight resistance on your rear wheels whenever you spin them.5 Release your parking brake lever. Check and make sure that your rear wheels are still able to spin freely and without any resistance.6 Pull up on your parking brake lever up to three to five clicks or notches, while making sure that your car's rear wheels are not turning at all.7 Lower the car by adjusting your jack, and remove your jack stands from your car's rear wheels.

It locks up on a hill will not come out of park


The way to avoid this when parking the car on a hill is to apply the parking brake first, allow the car to settle in position by easing off the regular brakes, then put car in park. When it is time to go put the car in gear then release the parking brake. Let the parking brake do all the work. This problem is common to most cars with an automatic transmission. The weight of the car is pressing against the parking mechanism inside the transmission. Many folks have to resort to having a friend rock the car forwards and back to free up the parking mechanism.

Key will not turn on.steering is unlocked.it is in park


try shaking steering wheel from left to right while at the same time turning the key towards the "on" position.if you're parked on a hill,this is not unusuall. it happens at times. you may need to release the parking brake and shake the car backwards and forwards to release the car from park. suggest you enlist a couple volunteers to assist. MAKE SURE YOUR VOLUNTEERS DO NOT STAND IN FRONT OR REAR OF THE CAR AT ANYTIME. rock the car back and forth while turning the key to the on position.this works 90 per cent of the time. sometimes when parking on a hill this happens. in the future when parking on a hill,1st put the emergency brake on,then apply parking brake to insure of this issue. then put the car in park. as a retired tow truck driver i have seen this before.it's not uncommon for the transmission to bind when parked on a hill,or up against a curb,not on a hill. wish you the best of luck,if you need further assistance,please repost your question to fixya.com

Why does the parking break light stay on in my 97 Olds Cutlas Supreme. I have checked the level of the break fluid and it is full. I did have new break lines put in last year. I did have to slam on my...


Apply the parking brake with the vehicle parked, engine turned off and transmission in Park. Release the parking brake completely, then apply it again, and ensure that it is fully released. Turn the ignition on, check to see if the Parking brake warning light is on. If it is NOT on, apply the parking brake and check to see if the warning light comes on. If the light come ON wihen the Parking brake is applied,.....fully release the parking brake and check if the warning light goes OFF. If it does NOT go off, then an adjustment is needed at the parking brake switch.

The parking brake is disengaged and when i am driving it will flash


In most cases when the brake or parking light comes on it's due to the switch not making full contact with the parking brake linkage. Sometimes just manually pulling the brake back will make the light go off. Fix is to adjust the switch out just a little so that the switch goes off when the brake is released.

The emergency brake light sometimes goes on when accelerating and when going up hills.


You just need to add some brake fluid to the reservoir. The float switch turns on the light when the car is not leveled because the fluid is low.

Hope this helps,
