Question about 1990 Mitsubishi Eclipse
This will sound like a silly question, but I bought my 1990 Eclipse 10 years ago and never had a manual for it. It is a Turbo with a manual transmission. The "brake" light that usually comes on when the emergency brake is on has been coming on intermittently while I'm driving. Sometimes it goes right off, but other times it remains on for a couple of miles. I didn't know if it had anything to do with my regular brakes (not the emergency brake) ... like maybe my brake fluid is low (I have not checked that yet). Another possibility is that the emergency brake handle is slightly "off-kilter" so that the emergency brake may be slightly "on"? Or maybe it's just a faulty switch somewhere. I guess I needed to know whether I should be concerned, whether I should check my brake fluid level and add some if needed (don't know where to look for that yet ... haven't checked under the hood yet, but bought some brake fluid just in case). Can anyone help?
Most cases it would just be a ground wire that is loosing connection and gaining it back. other times it can be that the e-brake needs to be tightened up. i wouldnt worry to much about the e-brake coming on while your driving unless you notice there is a problem when the car is starting to drive. i would look at the whole e-brake system starting with the cables and working my way back to the shoes and drums. maybe all you need to do is just fine tune it a little
