Hi, do you mean a brake warning light on the dash, or the brake lights on the rear of the car?

If it's on the dash, you are having the brake light sensor alert you that your brakes are getting worn out and need urgent replacement before the start failing.

If on the rear of the car, the brake light switch may need adjusted or replaced.

My brake lamp light keeps coming on as soon as i start my car and step on the brake the light comes and stays on i've checked all the rear lights and they all work


will be due to lack of pressure more than lack of fluid, try bleeding the brakes, the light should go away unless you have a split in one of your brake lines or your master cylinder is leaking

Had to brake hard , now the brake and anti-lock lights won't go out


You may be able to turn the light off by using a scanner.
sometimes the light comes on just because you use the system
it may also go off after 20 or 50 starts
You may also have a damaged part keeping the light on.

99 ford expedition, abs light stays on, front brakes seem to be dragging


When was the last time you changed the front brake pads?
Try this:
Keep the brake pedal pressed down and start the car, after it idles for about 10 second let go of the pedal. If the light comes on just as you leave the pedal - try pumping it a few times, turn the car off and pump the pedal some more until it becomes real hard.
Then, keeping your foot to the pedal, start the car.
Idle for about 10 seconds, let go of the pedal and press it again rel fast.
If the light doesnt come on again - it means you have a leak of some sort or that the main brake pump should be replaced.

Good luck.
