Park brake indicator lights up at random

We have a 2000 model Toyota Avalon.The foot operated park brake indicator light on the dashboard comes on and off at random while driving , even though the park brake has been fully released. This is annoying.
There must be a way of eliminating this from recurring. Please help!

Hi,

There is a sensor in the brake master cylinder reservoir it that may be going bad or the fluid is just low enough that it is triggering on and off. Top off the fluid and see if the problem goes away. Then check the pad thickness front and rear.

There are only 2 things that turn this on one id the sensor in the reservoir and the other is the switch at the parking brake. If you ruled out the parking brake then that only leaves the sensor in the reservoir. Disconnect the connector to the reservoir and see if the problem goes away then if it does not then disconnect the switch at the parking brake. Rule one at a time out. These are grounding switches.

Good Luck!!

Thanks!!

I don't have any reverse lights on my 2000 toyota avalon


if the bulbs are good, then check the signal from the transmission range switch.you can check that at the bulb socket with the park brake set, the key on/engine off and put trans in reverse. use a test light and check power in the light socket. no power indicates bad fuse, bad wiring, or bad range switch.

2000 Toyota Avalon - when you press the brake the light on the dash comes on and indicates a problem with the tail light. Checked all the bulbs, working fine. Replace two with new ones, light still on. ...


Make sure you are using the correct bulb numbers per manufactures recommendation. Diff types of bulbs even though they fit and light up will give light monitor false readings. You may have a malfunctioning light monitor which I have seen on a few of these models.

That break light usually means the parking break is on. Check to make sure that is released all the way. Even one click on will turn on the light.
