Your brake light switch needs to be adjusted or replaced. When brakes are applied, the pedal hits a switch, which turns on the brake lights. These can usually be adjusted for light applied braking or either they have a designed place that is not adjustable. Either way, this is a simple task.

Leaking brake fluid from right front wheel 1995 honda passport


Sounds like from what you describe it's a leaking break caliper. The best thing to do is get a rebuilt one. It's best to replace them in pairs. Also replace or clean the brake pads thoroughly!

2005 chevy duramax 4x4 brake pedal goes all the way to the floor, ABS light on


You need to add BRAKE fluid. After that, blead your brakes. You need to find out where the brake fluid went. If there are no leaks, you need to check the remaining life on all four brake sets. If you have no leaks, chances are pretty good that you need new brakes.

My 03 kia rio automatic the brake pedal goes to the floor almost and dont wanna stop but the brakes are pretty new the brake light on the dash is remaining on as well


Either the brake lines need to be bled, or brake fluid is very low. Maybe on the last brake servicing, a leak developed. Are there signs of fluid loss, such a spot on the floor, or stained wheels?

Pedal to the floor, topped up fluid - brakes OK, warning light ON


If you have an ABS computer, unplug it for a few minutes, the light should clear.
