Hi,

Handbrake switch & brake fluid levels are often connected to the same warning light.

If you've determined the little handbrake switch (at base of handbrake) is satisfactory, then you should check your brake fluid level in the resevoir, under your hood (next to brake booster).

Cheers,

Either the sensor is bad or the handle is not full down.

Hand break light coming on with out using hand break


The cable tightness is loose therefore causing the light to come on while driving, tighten or replace the eb cable hope that helps or you need to push in the button on it hold the button and pull it back as far as you can. let go then push button pull back farther and release, this should tighten the tension.

1996 Buick Century 6 cyl. The brake lights stay on after the ignition is turned off. Where is the brake light switch located and how do I remove it?


Hello

The break light switch is down under the dash. Follow the brake pedal up and your hand will hit it. Release the tabs and slowly pull the connector out and the lights should turn off.

have a great weekend.

Abs and hand brake light stays on


wheel speed sensor data may not be getting to t e abs control module.
The hand brake light may stay on if the hand brake is not fully retracted or the cable is loose.

Check brake fluid level to make sure you have enough in the master cylinder.
