What if the 2000 dodge caravan break light comes on


If the BRAKE light comes on, and the parking brake is not engaged, it indicates a potentially very dangerous condition, where hydraulic pressure is lost in the system. IT IS NOT SAFE TO DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE IF THE BRAKE LIGHT ILLUMINATES, EVEN "ONCE IN AWHILE," WHEN DEPRESSING THE BRAKE PEDAL.

IT IS ALSO NOT SAFE TO DRIVE THE VEHICLE IF THE BRAKE LIGHT ILLUMINATES WITH THE PARKING BRAKE DISENGAGED.

The cause for the issue may be:
  1. Bad master cylinder (most likely);
  2. Contaminated brake fluid (if the wrong kind of fluid was used);
  3. Bad wheel cylinder(s);
  4. Damaged brake line;
  5. Excessive wear on brake parts (such as pads and rotors);
  6. Defective brake pressure sensor.

Smell of burning rubber on offside rear wheel. Intermittent. Kia Ceed 113bhp 1.6


I think you are on the right track with the hand brake/ parking brake. A vehicle can still drive if its slightly engaged and you would notice some sort of burning smell from the area. Try engaging the brake and disengaging the brake a few times and see if it releases completely. There may be an issue with the line causing it to "stick" here and there. Good luck! Cars are complicated but troubleshooting the small things before spending hundreds in labour is always wise!

I have a 1997 Hyundai Accent and my brake lights do not turn off. What can i do and wht causes this problem


The brake pedal switch probably needs adjustment/replacement. It should be located up above the brake pedal and should engage as soon as you press the brake pedal. It may just be misaligned slightly and is always on.

97 brake light chime


Several possibilities here, First, if your parking brake lever is even slightly engaged your brake light will be on. so check the cable and switch to make sure it is not this. Second is the brake pressure switch on the master cylinder, the switch could be bad or your lines may need bleeding. and last, unless there is a separate light for it you anti-lock brakes could have an issue, which I would recommend a qualified mech look at that.

Dash brake light on is not the hand brake


Check your brake fluid level. This can sometimes cause the Brake warning light to come on even when the Emergency brake is not engaged.

It may also be an issue with the toggle switch/censor on the emergency brake itself. Your Vehicle is over two decades old and electronics tend to fail at that age.

Check those out first.

If not, take it to a mechanic or brake specialist and have them diagnose the problem.

Hope this helped! Thanks!

My abs light is always on and now my brake warning light is on but brakes seem to be working fine


The ABS light is a warning that you have an issue with the ABS system. The red brake warning lamp is serious. It is telling you that there is an issue with the base brakes. Your car will be ok with an ABS light, but the red warning lamp could be really dangerous. You should have them checked ASAP. It could be from many causes. A park brake switch, low fluid, the causes are too numerous to list. Please for your safty have it checked. Good Luck

Sounds to me like the brake light switch is shorted and needs to be replaced. The brake light switch should be under the knee bolster above the brake pedal. Go to your nearest dealer and get a brake light switch and swap it out.

Brake light will not go off


Your brake fluid is most likely low due to pad wear add fluid and the light should go out. Also check the thickness of your front disc brake pads.
