This symbol came up on my dash (!)


Hello,
This symbol is typically associated with your brakes, traction control, skid control etc. It could be something relatively simple to get fixed. I recommend you go to a certified mechanic and have them scan the code(s) if you can get me the codes i will be able to tell you exactly what your problem is. Could be something as simple as a warning that your brake pads are getting low and need to be replaced. I can save you a lot of time and $$ if you are able to get the codes. Usually a shop will charge an hours labor to scan these types of codes.
Please advise,
-Tim

Instrument panel brake light stays on what does it mean


The brake warning light is for the hydraulic system.
It could be low on fluid or several other things. There may also be a warning light for a dead brake or tail light.

Mk3 golf handbrake light problem


That hand brake light is also your conventional brake
warning lite. Hopefully its the flimsy connector and switch that is making it flicker. But to play it safe have some one do an inspection of your brake system and if it turns out to be the wiring or the switch we can both laugh about it. This repair is not a biggie at all IF ITS THE SWITCH OR ITS WIRING.

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 !

Red brake warning light is coming on randomly, only stays on briefly, but has never come on before. it started yesterday, wonder if it's at all weather related as it's been bitterly cold? do I need to get...


Have your brakes check out, could be getting low on brake pads or shoes, which will make your brake fluid get low, to make up for the space of wear of your brake pads or shoes, check and fill your master cylinder to the max level mark.Being that the brake fluid is low the sensor in the master cylinder will make the warning light come on.Fill and have your brakes checked.

Brake pad warning light on golf gti 1.8t 1999 t reg


Brake wear indicator and low brake fluid warning indication are two different circuits.

They are not related.

==
Easy route to check brake pads is the measure the gab between the rotor and the metal portion of the brake pad.

If it's low then replace it.
==

The right way is to pull the tires and measure the thickness of the remaining brake pad.

===

Most shop give free brake inspection with oil change,

Check it out before the pad cuts into the rotor and it will DOUBLE the cost of your brake job.

Warning light?


If it's round with a line down the middle, then it's a fault in brake system warning. You should check your brake fluid level.

Parking brake light


The parking brake and the low brake fluid use the same light. If it comes on during acceleration, your brake fluid level is low and you need to add some brake fluid or replace your pads. The brake fluid gets low as the pads wear as the whole system is hydraulic. Another possibility is a brake fluid leak. As you accelerate, the fluid gets pushed back causing the low brake fluid light to turn on.
