The brake light usually comes on with the battery on older Toyotas as an indicator that a problem with the alternator has occurred.

    If you are getting bubbling and gurgling noises as well check and see if the alternator belt has broken. Same belt should operate the water pump.

Person next to me told me my front right passenger tire was smoking. He yelled out something about brakes. Sometimes my brake light goes on.


Sounds like the brake caliper is seized on that right front wheel and the pads are heating the disc and smoking. Just put you finger on the disc and feel it after a journey.

Why do brakes go to floor but still have light pressure?


It sounds like you have air in your brake lines. This is usually caused by a very low brake fluid in the master cyclinder.
To fix this problem fill up the master cyclinder with brake fluid and bleed the front wheel brake cyclinders until the air bubbles are removed. Keep the master cyclinder topped up with brake fluid. Then bleed the rear wheel brake cyclinders until the air bubbles are removed. Don't forget to top up the brake fluid in the master cyclinder.

Sounds like you have a broken belt that runs the alternator. Usually when the battery and brake lights come on it means the alternator isn't charging. Either that or the alternator burnt up.

Your alternator may be overcharging & causing major electrical problems! If your battery is bubbling then it cant be good. Check the voltage output @ diferent RPMs. Also check for cut or shorted wires! Also check that the battery indicator bulb isnt burnt out

1998 chevy express van 3500 front brakes and rear are new, front calipers are new but ABS light on dash is on, the front brakes smoke after a little while of driving. Thanks Joe


I'd first make sure the new pads are the correct size. Doesn't happen very often but maybe the parts person gave you the wrong size pads ( for the smoking problem). As for the ABS light, most newer cars will throw out codes if you wait too long to change them out, I would contact a chevy dealer or search online about reseting the code (light).

My abs & brake lights go on & off brake pedal seems soft brake fluid - ok, no leaks, has new brake lines, slamming on the brakes locks 'em up. no abs, right? 2000 gmc jimmy 4.3


Sounds like you might have air in the brake system. You will need to bleed the brakes to remove air. Start with the passenger back wheel. use a small hose and submerge the end in a glass bottle filled 1/3 full of brake fluid. The other end goes on the nipple of the brake bleeder. Have someone pump the brakes and then hold the pedal down then loosen the bleeder. then tighten the bleeder. you should see bubbles in the brake fluid. Keep repeating this procedure until you see no bubbles. You might have to put as much as 1 quart of brake fluid thru each wheel to remove air. Then you do the driver side rear followed bypassenger side front and finally driver side front

Pedal almost goes to floor, see steam or smoke from front wheels


Definitely sounds like you have a brake fluid leak. It shouldn't be driven anymore until the problem is repaired. The red brake light comes on when the fluid is low. If your in a rusty climate one of the brake lines has probably rusted out. When it dries up try following the lines from the master to each wheel. However since you said you saw smoke when braking i'd bet the leak is near a wheel and fluid hit the rotor or caliper which caused the smoke. In either case, sounds like something has to be replaced / repaired. Good luck.

If you smoke or eat in your vehical your smoke proble got in to it and messed up your hloe system. I suggest you getting a cd/dvd cleaner and try that. If it worked for me it should work for you to! Good Luck!

Battery and brake light came on during ride home.


first thing is to check your oil these cars are notorious for having engines that burn oil. the battery and brake light problem i had to take it to the dealer and they wound up relearning the computer i cant remember what exactly they did but it worked. I wound up replacing the engine ran about 3500 dollars. Mine is a v4 and runs like a cream puff I hope its not an engine swap
