Question about 1998 Ford Escort
Is there any brake fluid leaks anywhere?
Check your Brake Fluid Level in your Master Cylinder Reservoir. If it is too low, this will trigger the Brake Light. This is the number 1 reason for the warning light to trigger.
Also: there is an electrical connection adjacent to the Reservoir. Check this connection. Unplug, check the metal connectors (both) for any corrosion or oxidation (whiting) and remove this from the metal. Replug and recheck operation.
Further: what is the condition of your Brake Pads and/or Brake Shoes? Pads or Shoes that are worn out (very low) will trigger this.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have any additional infomation, problems or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!
