Interior brake light on in 2004 Kia Spectra but no brake issues. Goes out after car runs for about 5 minutes.

Check the brake fluid level in the reservoir under the hood. It is likely low. If it is low it would be a good time to check the brakes. Low fluid can indicate a leek or brakes that are just about worn out.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Where is the dip stick to check transmission fluid in a 2002 kia spectra

On the 2002 Spectra, it is just left of the air filter box. It has a red "button" on top of it. It's not a "loop" like the oil dipstick. It's just like a knob for a drawer, but vertical.

With an automatic transmission, you would add transmission fluid into the ATF fill port, which is located beside the transmission's dipstick.

I hope this helps you, if so please show me the 4 thumbs up for this free solution. Thanks Mike from Fixya.

With a manual transmission, where do i add the transmission fluid and what type do i use?

you shouldn't have to add fluid unless you have developed a leak, in that case there is a plug on the side of the trans, fill to the bottom of the hole, as for fluid look at the owners manual for type and weight

Where does the brake fluid go and will replacing the fluid turn off the brake light?

The brake fluid goes in a semi clear reservior with a black cap which is mounted on the Master Cylinder that is located on the drivers side firewall. Most likely you are low on brake fluid that's why your light is on but it could be more in depth problem than that. Add the fluid first before and see if the light turns off.
