IP Brake light has come on in my 2004 Kia Sorento.. what does this mean?


Kia Sorento parking brake or brake fluid dash warning light - this light is illuminated when the park brake is applied, the warning light should go out when the parking brake is released. If the light does not go out it indicates that the brake fluid level in the reservoir is low and you need to pull over and top up at your first opportunity.

1-check parking brakes not applied
2-check brake fluid
3-if it is too low have the brakes checked they might be wearing out it doesn't mean you have a leak but when the brakes wear out the become thin causing the caliber piston to push out more lowering the oil level in the reservoir

The tail lights on 1999 Passat will not come on. The brake lights work. The signal lights work.


Check the stoplight switch. Its a little switch tha connects to the brake pedal shaft under the dash (usually). It may be unplugged, stuck, or just went bad.

BRAKE LIGHTS COME ON WHEN CLUTCH IS DEPRESSED


The bracket that holds the pedals becomes loose sometimes, letting the brake move slightly when you press the clutch. Check for that movement, there is an adjustment for the brake switch, the switch is on the brake pedal under tha dash. It can be pushed in or out which ever is necessary to get the brake lights off.

I.P Brake light is staying on.. what does this mean


Hi,

Offhand, the brake light warning on most dashboards would indicate that the hand/emergency brake is engaged. If even when the hand/emergency brake is disengaged or is in normal position and the light is still lit, it could indicate that:
  • the brake fluid in the reservoir is below minimum level;
  • and possibly the brake shoes/pads need replacement.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
