The most likely problem that you have is a leaking heater core and the fluid that is leaking is actually anti-freeze or engine coolant.Be sure to check the radiator level often until you can get this repaired because low coolant in this car will take out the head gasket and that can be an expensive repair.

Leaking Fluid

Hi Sarah, I'm glad to help!

Sarah, you can rule out the A/C because the A/C wasn't running when the problem occurred. You can also rule out any fluids from the engine are transmission for they only leak on the ground not inside the vehicle. What you have is a water leak coming in from the rain. Here's a good way to find out where its coming from. Take your home garden hose and run water from the top of the vehicle down the windshield and watch under the dash board to see if you can see where it is coming from. NOTE: You may have to move the hose in different areas until the water comes into the vehicle. Once you find where the leak is then have the glass company repair the leak. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Sarah.

Leak under dashboard

The only fluids under the dash are coolant that circulates through the heater core, or if you have a manual transmission a failed clutch master cylinder can leak brake fluid under the dash right where clutch pedal is located. If the heater core is leaking, it usually shows up on the passenger side. If it is just plain water, you need to check how rain water could be getting in past the firewall and under the dash.

Okay I just purchased a 2002 Sonata Hyundai and it didnt have the manual to it when i got it my brake light on the dash board came on so I checked the fluids and it is low I need to know what...

If you go to a local motor parts store I am sure they will advise. Also there are owners forums online You probably need 'dot 4' brake fluid
HOWEVER the level might be low because of some other problem, have your brake pads checked for wear and fluid leaks on hoses or calipers or rear brakes as soon as possible.
Fluid level is usually low if there is a leak or the brake pads are VERY worn.

I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

Dash board light came on brakes do not work

Do not drive the car. You have lost fluid somehow or your master cylinder is bad. If this happened suddenly, You most likely have lost fluid from a rusted out brake line, leaking wheel cylinder, caliper, hoses, etc. Look under vehicle for signs of leaks.

Brake light on the dash board goes on while pushing the brakes

The brake light coming on signifies a low level of brake fluid in the resevoir.Because it only comes on when you push the pedal it's borderline on level. It needs to be topped up and check under the car for leaks. A leaking line is the most common cause of brake fluid. Have you noticed a change in the feel of the pedal lately? Has it gone spongy or hard? Either are a sign of leaking brake lines. Hope this helps.

Have pink fluid leaking from under the dash.

Hi I am Vortash .. as a guess it may be brake or clutch hydraulic fluid or antifreeze so first look in the radiator expansion tank if the same fluid in there you have a leak in your heater radiator matrix .. if not check the fluid reservoir in the clutch and brake some fluids are a pinkish colour if that is the same then you have either a clutch or brake master cylinder leak hope this is of help .. Regards Vortash ....
