What does it mean when the break light turns on

it usually means you are low on break fluid...or the front pads are wore out and the master cylinder is low on fluid because the calipers are full of fluid an pushed out all the way because of worn out pads....I have also seen emergency brake stuck on one notch to activate light....check fluid level<check pads<chech e'brake....good luck...Lee

Emergency brake light stays on also battery light on

Assuming there is not a problem with the parking brake (as in a stuck switch), the red "BRAKE" light will remain on if your brake fluid is low (for your regular service brakes). Check your fluid, and if it is low, check your brakes and brake lines to be sure there isn't a leak somewhere, as this could be dangerous!

Brake fluid level will drop slightly as your brake pads/shoes wear over time. If you need brake pads or shoes, avoid topping the fluid off, as it will overflow when you go to compress the pistons in the calipers later on (when changing your brake pads). If you MUST add fluid, only add to the "FULL" mark. If you have a leak, remember the brakes must be bled after you repair the leak.

The battery light signifies a charging problem. You will need to check the output of your alternator, as in volts AND amps. Usually a local garage will be able to perform a quick (and cheap) check of your charging system. Check your battery too, to be sure that it holds a good charge.

My hand break light stays on while driving. Is this a warning light or is there just faulty lighting?? Thanks

If you have done about 30+k Miles , you may need brake pads.Examine for leaks, Check brake fluid resevoir (yellow cap usually) for fluid level. Do not top up if no leaks are present. It may just be the early brake pad wear indicator telling you it's time to replace the pads. Removal of the front wheels and inspect the brake pad condition for wear. Good luck If pads are worn, topping up fluid will put out the light BUT not solve the wear problem so inspect first.

The brake light comes on, on the dash. Brakes work O.K.2003 mercury grand marquis. 112000 miles. the dealer says the pads are good.

Make sure your emergency brake pedal is all the way up, because sometimes if it goes down one notch, that can trigger that light to come on..It wont be enough to drag or slow the sar down, but it will be enough to turn that light on...Also even though your brakes are good..double check your break fluid level...

My 2008 Corolla LE brake light is on but no brake problems

Usually when it is on, it is due to either low brake fluid, e-brake is not full disengaged, or abs pump or circuit is faulty.
