Question about 2003 Ford Taurus
According to the 2003 Ford TaurusOwners Manual:
"Brake system warning light: To confirm the brake system warning light is functional, it will
momentarily illuminate when the ignition is turned to the ON position when the engine is not running, or in a position between ON and START,
or by applying the parking brake when the ignition is turned to the ON position. If the brake system warning light does not illuminate at this
time, seek service immediately from your dealership. Illumination after releasing the parking brake indicates low brake fluid level and the brake
system should be inspected immediately by your servicing dealership."
In short, as your brake linings (pads and shoes) wear out, the brake fluid level in the reservoir goes down.
You're probably right at the point where the level gets low enough to turn on the warning only under specific circumstances (cornering? hard braking?).
You can top off the fluid for the short term, but you should have your brakes inspected fairly soon.
