THE ALTERNATER IS DEFECTIVE.
CHANGE THE ALTERNATER.--REMOVE THE SERPENTINE BELT BY PUSHING THE TENSIONER PULLEY WITH A CROW BAR OR BIG SCREWDRIVER. BE CAREFULL TO NOTE THE ROUTING OF THE BELT FIRST, THEN REMOVE THE ALTERNATER BOLTS. INSTALLATION IS THE REVERSE OF THE REMOVAL.

The Brake warning light comes on. I checked the brake fluid level in master cylinder & it was okay. The fluid looked dirty. Please help


Sharon, Check to make sure emergency brake is not on and fully released, try not to drive your vehicle if the red brake warning light is on. Could have air in the system from a small crack in brake line, faulty master cylinder, faulty caliper etc. Have a good tech. check braking system, diagnose and estimate repair.

Battery and brake lights on


John, According to Nissan forums weak failing alternator is the common problem for bat and brk light on. If you are sure battery and alternator are good, I say check and clean battery connections and all grounds(loosen and re tighten all ground connections to give good contact), check belt for being loose.
Check the attached links,

Brake and battery lights turned on


I'm sorry but there isn't a line going from your alternator to your brake Master cylinder. The brake fluid is in a contained sealed loop and it is used for hydraulic pressure, it does not flow out of the master cylinder and lube the alternator bearing. Yes your brake light could be on because it's low on fluid, if your alternator is squealing, it could be because of a bad bearing but, I'd look at the serpentine belt tensioner first, it could be weak, I'd also look at the condition of the serpentine belt itself. If the belt has never been changed that means it's 12 years old and probably worn and cracked.

Do i need to use Honda brake fluid, or will any good DOT3 fluid be ok?


Any DOT3 fluid is fine. If its low enough to turn the light on, brake service may be needed. Its engineered so that the brake fluid level will go down until the light comes on, then its time for brake service. So if you fill it up, the light will never come on and the brakes will be worn past the limits without any warning.

Brake warning light is on while driving


Check the fluid level in your brake fluid reservoir. A sensor in the reservoir indicates when the fluid level is low. The reservoir on most cars is just in front of the driver on the back wall (firewall) of the engine compartment. Look in your owners manual for more information. Another possibility is that your parking brake is not fully disengaged or the switch that indicates that it is disengaged is not operating properly.

HAVE A 2006 MITSUBISHI ENDEAVOR I GOT A LIGHT THAT LOOKS LIKE A HORSE SHOE WITH AN EXCLAMATION POINT. CAN YOU PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT THAT IS I DID NOT GET AN OWNERS MANUAL WITH THE CAR.


This is not a good warning light as it relates to your Braking system !!!

Brake system warning light

brake_fluid_light_72.jpg
This light will remain illuminated when the handbrake is engaged. Illumination after releasing the handbrake may indicate low brake fluid level (MUST CHECK THIS IMMEDIATELY AND RECTIFY).

Hope the information is useful ... be extremely careful and attend to this warning immediately if it is still on with your handbrake off and brake fluid top up!

I had my rear brakes done on my 2005 Toyota Highlander by a mechanic not a delorship and I do no know how to reset the brake warning light.


Make sure fluid level is good. If ok tap on reservoir sometime air gets trapped or the float will stay stuck at bottom. See if that helps.

Brake Light On (in dash)


look inside all wheels and under car for break fluid, you may have a wheel cyl.leaking or a busted break line, or the resavor may have got low enought to trigger the light. if no visable signs of fluid leaks, take it to a local auto parts store and have them hook there scanner up and turn your break light off for you (unless you can disconnect battery to erase the break light i don't know). you may have just triggered the switch for (to low fluid.)
