Hi from uk the brake indicator warning light you mention has two functions it indicates thet the h/brake is either on or not fully off ? and is also an indication of the brake fluid level is low this may be either your car has a brake fluid leak ? somewhere or more than likely considering age of car the brake pads/shoes are worn low resulting in the displacement of fluid from reservoir to take up wear of pads operated by calipers/cylinders ? also if pads are low ?thenyour car may have brakepads worn very low indicators on the actual pads these are wires fitted on pads this too is a most probable cause of indicator illuminating ? SO asap check the above i have mentioned b4 you continue driving for any distance

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.

Clio 2002 authentique 1.2 8 valve stop light & hand brake light stay on in the dash can anyone help!


hi from uk the stop/handbrake light has two warning functions it will illuminate when hand brake is applied or is left on whilst driving or not fully off position ?? the other function is it is warning you that your brake fluid in the reservoir is low/requires topping up ? if it is low ? this could be due to a fluid leak ?either from pipes or wheel cyl's/calipers ? OR ? just that as your b/pads and shoes wear lower then fluid from reservoir displaces from res to cyl's to compensate for wear so may i suggest you 1st check fluid level+top up if low? then check for leaks as above more important have your brake pads and rear shoes or pads if fitted checked for wear/safety i advise this considering age/milage? of car and if you have no record of being checked/replaced recently? if your brake pads are fitted with low pads wear indicators this will also give warning hope this helps? good luck !

The brake lights on my 05 renault modus won't work. All other light working and the brake bulbs are ok. Checked under seat and all looks ok. Any ideas.


Did you check the fuse?
If the fuse is good, you might have a bad brake light switch. It's under the dash, near the top of the brake pedal

05 plate renault megane 2tr automatic. brake lights dont work but bulbs are fine and fuse is ok. any idea where the problem might be


Then the only thing left to check is the brake switch, which is usually located under the dash, linked up to the brake pedal itself. It's the true secret to the inner workings of the brake light. If that switch is defective, either the brake light won't come on at all, or they will stay on all the time. Either way, you either need to replace it, or maybe it just unhooked from the brake pedal and you need to fix it.
