Question about 2000 Toyota Avalon
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!
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.
