My parking brake light won't go off. It has been on for about a week already. I have double checked to make sure it is not my emergency parking brake. What could it be?


This brake warning llight will come on if the brake fluid level in the master cylinder gets to low. Have you checked the fluid level?

Emergency brake light on


Brake warning light can come on for several reasons. 1st check all your brake lights work. If not get them working. 2 Check brake fluid level in master cylinder as some vehicles have a sensor in there for low fluid. or the switch located under the park brake lever may need replacement or a modification by someone who knows what to do.

Please also note that the low fluid level sensor in your brake master cylinder will also make this light come on. If the brake fluid is low in the master cylinder, you need to find out WHY! There is either an hydraulic leak in the system or the disc brake pads are worn VERY thin. Then again, the low fluid level sensor could be faulty.

There is also a difference in brake systems available in your vehicle. If you do not have a fluid level switch in you master cylinder, there will be a pressure differential switch mounted between the fluid lines just below the antilock brake module. If this switch is causing the brake light to come on, it is usually because of a fluid leak somewhere in the system. If the hydraulic pressure on one dide of the switch or the other drops for some reason, it will cause the piston in the switch to shift to the side and turn the switch on. Again, you vehicle may be equipped with one or the other - you simply have to look.

To find out if it is the low fluid level switch, the pressure differential switch` or the parking brake switch, just unplug each of the switches to see if the light goes out.

If it actually is the parking brake switch, it is usually because the parking brake lever assembly is malfunctioning or you may have a stuck forward cable that is not allowing the pedal to return to the full UP position. Parking brake lever/pedal assembly failures are pretty common. I have changed quite a few of them.

Brake warning light.

If the light is on all the time, it could mean you simply forgot to release the parking (emergency) brake. The brake warning light remains on when the brake is set as a reminder. If the brake warning light remains on when the parking brake is released, then something is amiss.
In some cases, the brake warning light may remain on if the switch on the parking brake pedal or lever is misadjusted. Nothing is wrong with the brakes and a simple adjustment should fix the problem.
If the brake warning light comes on when you apply the brakes, or is on continuously, it means that hydraulic pressure has been lost in one side of the brake system or that the fluid level in the master cylinder is dangerously low (due to a leak somewhere in the brake system). In either case, the fluid level in the master cylinder should be checked. Adding brake fluid to the master cylinder reservoir may temporarily solve the problem. But if there's a leak, the new fluid will soon be lost and the warning light will come back on.

My antilock brake system stopped working and my emergancy brake light is on even though the brake is down. the fluid is fine.


If the parking brake switch is not stuck and the fluid level is OK, try tapping on the fluid reservoir to see if the light flickers or goes off. (you need 2 people to do this) If it flickers or goes off then replace your fluid level sensor. (You may have to buy a complete reservoir or master cylinder depending on your car ) If this does not provide any results, then you may have an internal leak in your master cylinder or Antolock Hydraulic Control Module causing the Proportioning Sensor Switch to turn the light on. At this point. I would tow it to a shop and have the Antilock Control Module scanned to see why it has turned the light on and disabled your Antilock Brake System. I do not recommend driving the car at all until the RED brake warning lamp problem has been resolved. It is OK to operate the vehicle (cautiously) with the YELLOW Antilock brake lamp on.

My brake lights stay on after I turn off the car


Hello,

If the light is on all the time, it could mean you simply forgot to release the
parking (emergency) brake. The brake warning light remains on when the brake is set
as a reminder. If the brake warning light remains on when the parking brake is
released, then something is amiss.

In some cases, the brake warning light may remain on if the switch on the parking
brake pedal or lever is misadjusted. Nothing is wrong with the brakes and a simple
adjustment should fix the problem.

If the brake warning light comes on when you apply the brakes,
or is on continuously, it means that hydraulic pressure has been lost in one side
of the brake system or that the fluid level in the master cylinder is dangerously
low (due to a leak somewhere in the brake system).
In either case, the fluid level in the master cylinder should be checked.
Adding brake fluid to the master cylinder reservoir may temporarily solve the
problem. But if there's a leak, the new fluid will soon be lost and the warning
light will come back on.

Brake fluid leaks are serious because they may cause the brakes to fail!
So avoid driving the vehicle until the system can be inspected to determine what's
wrong. Leaks can occur in brake hoses, brake lines, disc brake calipers,
drum brake wheel cylinders or the master cylinder itself.
Wet spots at hose or line connections would indicate a leak that needs to be fixed.

Leaking brake fluid can also contaminate the brake linings,
causing them to slip or grab. The uneven braking action that results may cause the
vehicle to veer to one side when the brakes are applied. Brake shoes or pads that
have been contaminated with brake fluid cannot be dried out and must be replaced.

Hope this helps.

Brake warning lights stay on when i press the foot brake .the brake lights work ok .


You may just need to fill the brake resorvoir with brake fluid, when you are NOT pressing the pedal the fluid in the resovoir is low and the light comes on.

When you DO press the brake pedal you are forcing brake fluid level to go higher and this tells the sensor in the resovoir that the resovoir is full.

Hello... I would recommend checking for a frozen (stuck) rear brake, a mis-adjusted emergency brake light switch, a stuck or sticking parking brake cable or a mis-adjusted brake pedal rachet lock which is the locking mechanism that holds down the brake pedal. Remember it could be multiple problems.

Good Luck..
