Hi:
It is not likely the high brake fluid will trip the check engine light. There are hundreds of things that will, including some so simple as a loose gas cap. An easy way to find out what caused the light is to stop by a local auto parts store, such as autozone. they will scan your car for free and tell you what caused the light if possible. Then you can go from there!

My Husband changed my serpentin belt yesterday


Just a hunch, but I'm guessing that the belt is on correctly except for the power steering.It's probably running backwards. Check the routing carefully. Hope this helps.

Service Engine Soon Light Came On


mostly your thermostat . how is your engine heat ?

Engine light is on.


Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the Check Engine or Service Engine Soon lights to tell you that there is a problem and you should have the car diagnosed and repaired. Not fluid related, but could be a small problem that's easy to fix now. Even a loose gas cap can turn the light on. Have a code scan, that's the starting point.

Parking brake light won't go off after using


have you tried to set and release the brake again? sometimes they do stick, and often times this will help.

it could be possible a sensor or a solonoid in the braking system has gone bad. Also, I would simply check the fluid level, as the brakes wear out, the system requires more fluid to be added to it.
