I would check the Emergency brake. If it is engaged then that would trigger the light on the dashboard.

Brake light won t turn off at dash fluid full


That light is also tied in with the parking brake,with the key and light on pull up on parking brake pedal to see if light will go off, assuming you have a good brake pedal & not a mushy feel then it's doing it's job telling you have a hydraulic issue in the system.The switch for the parking brake is mounted on the mechanism and a single wire to it,works off a cam with pedal pushed down switch grounds the circuit.

You need to add BRAKE fluid. After that, blead your brakes. You need to find out where the brake fluid went. If there are no leaks, you need to check the remaining life on all four brake sets. If you have no leaks, chances are pretty good that you need new brakes.

If the fluid was really low you most likely need brake pads replaced, if the pedal is soft you need a master cylinder.

Parking brake light is on and brake feels stuck


It most likely has one or more frozen brake calipers (very common)I suggest replacing them in pairs, Make sure you flush the old brake fluid out.Check the E-Brake cables to make sure they move freely.The light coming on could be low fluid level.

A light came on my dash of an exclamation mark with a circle and brackets around it but only came on dull, not really bright. What does that mean? And can I damage anything by driving it? Thank you


That sounds a lot like a brake warning light. Check your brake fluid. Take it for a SLOW drive, and see if the brake pedal feels unusual at all (spongy, soft). Wind your windows down, turn off the radio, and listen for any unusual noises, like grating or screeching.

If your brakes fail, then yes, you can damage something by driving it- Starting is optional, stopping is mandatory.

Your handbrake doesn't run on any hydraulic systems, so if they fail, in an emergency, you can use the handbrake. Apply it slowly- pulling it up hard will most likely cause your brakes to lock- but you'll need to use a fair bit of force... Without getting into physics, your back brakes don't work anywhere near as well as your front brakes do.

My brake peddel is spongee-soft, and goes to the floor if i prees hard?


when you push pedal hard & pedal goes to floor does brake light come on?
assuming brake fluid leval is ok & didnt run empty have you checked for a leak?
pulling all wheels & inspecting brakes,cylinders, calipers,& lines for leaks.
does the pedal pump up & feel ok with engine running?if so there is air in the system
if it does'nt change the way the pedal feels & no leaks are found & brake linings are ok & adjusted
properly than your master cylinder is leaking internally & needs to be replaced

Why would brake light come on when I press down fast and hard? Not during regular driving. Could it be brake fluid? I just had the pads changed less than 6 mo. ago


I assume you are referring to the brake light on the dash.....yes, this most certainly be the issue, especialy if th fluid had not been checked and/or topped up.........note : if you are going to be driving the car above 'normal', you definetly should be checking all fluid levels........

The brake light on my dash comes on once in a while. what does that mean....fluid or emergency problem? It's a 91 ford ranger pickup


is the break pedal soft or spongy is so check the level if low then check the lines and wheel cylinders for leaks if no leaks and good brakes and if the truck has anti-lock breaks it is more likly to be a abs sensor but also if no leaks and soft pedal could also be the master cylinder. if hard pedal then check the lines on the booster but that does not make the light come on. hope this helps

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.

My brake light stays on in the dash


Typically, worn brake pads won't cause the warning light to come on. Some vehicles have a brake fluid sensor that can cause the light to come on. Also make sure the parking brake is completely releasing and if you have ABS, make sure everything is working there.
Uneven brake pressure will certainly cause the brake light to come on, that's when the master cylinder is working a lot harder for one circuit (front or back) than it is for the other, indicating either low brake fluid level or damaged/worn wheel cylinders.
If you can't find anything by examining the brakes, you may need to pay for a scan of the ABS computer.
