Sounds like you need to replace the switch that goes to the parking brake. This switch is located close to the parking break and it's only function is to remind you that the parking brake is on. You can get this part from any major part store.

Emergency brake light stays on also battery light on


Assuming there is not a problem with the parking brake (as in a stuck switch), the red "BRAKE" light will remain on if your brake fluid is low (for your regular service brakes). Check your fluid, and if it is low, check your brakes and brake lines to be sure there isn't a leak somewhere, as this could be dangerous!

Brake fluid level will drop slightly as your brake pads/shoes wear over time. If you need brake pads or shoes, avoid topping the fluid off, as it will overflow when you go to compress the pistons in the calipers later on (when changing your brake pads). If you MUST add fluid, only add to the "FULL" mark. If you have a leak, remember the brakes must be bled after you repair the leak.

The battery light signifies a charging problem. You will need to check the output of your alternator, as in volts AND amps. Usually a local garage will be able to perform a quick (and cheap) check of your charging system. Check your battery too, to be sure that it holds a good charge.

Brake light on dash evening when the emergency brake is not on. what could cause this? also does thie vehicle have brake shoe or pads for the emergency brake.


Typically if your brake light is on and there is nothing going on with the Ebrake, when the pads start to wear down, that can drop the fluid level and set off that light. You may need to just replace pads and possibly top off fluid. Hope this helps.

Clio 2002 authentique 1.2 8 valve stop light & hand brake light stay on in the dash can anyone help!


hi from uk the stop/handbrake light has two warning functions it will illuminate when hand brake is applied or is left on whilst driving or not fully off position ?? the other function is it is warning you that your brake fluid in the reservoir is low/requires topping up ? if it is low ? this could be due to a fluid leak ?either from pipes or wheel cyl's/calipers ? OR ? just that as your b/pads and shoes wear lower then fluid from reservoir displaces from res to cyl's to compensate for wear so may i suggest you 1st check fluid level+top up if low? then check for leaks as above more important have your brake pads and rear shoes or pads if fitted checked for wear/safety i advise this considering age/milage? of car and if you have no record of being checked/replaced recently? if your brake pads are fitted with low pads wear indicators this will also give warning hope this helps? good luck !

Brake light is staying on, brakes seem to working fine, emergency brake isn't on, what do you think may be the problem?


If the brake light in the dash is staying on then you need brake fluid,the only reasons that you would need fluid is that you have a leak or that your pads or shoes are worn out,you need to check this right away.

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..

The abs light is on and the brake light comes on and stays on even if the van isn,t moving and foot is not on the brake peddle


It is probably a warning that you are low on brake fluid. As your brake shoes wear out you need more and more brake fluid to push them against the rotors so you should always periodically check your brake fluid and keep the resevoir full.

Rear brake pads junk rotors junk front pads full,uneven,low miles


emergency brake cable may not have been adjusted properly or emergency brake may have been partially engaged without brake light indicating such. Check brake release handle, if it makes no noise as to indicate realease, then it would have to be the e brake adjustment or frozen brake cylanders that when brakes are applied the pressure presses the shoes against the drums but does not release pressure, could be bad cylanders but not likely on both sides at the same time.

I.P Brake light is staying on.. what does this mean


Hi,

Offhand, the brake light warning on most dashboards would indicate that the hand/emergency brake is engaged. If even when the hand/emergency brake is disengaged or is in normal position and the light is still lit, it could indicate that:
  • the brake fluid in the reservoir is below minimum level;
  • and possibly the brake shoes/pads need replacement.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
