Question about Toyota Corolla

2 Answers

My parking brake light started coming on when I was driving about 7 months ago. I thought it only happened when it was cold out but now its always on from the second I start it to the second I shut it off. Sometimes very rarely it turnes off but then it turns right back on. I am sure it wont bother me driving its just really annoying!

Parking brakes work with mechanical operations only. If the lite goes on & off occasionally, then very possibly the Pb switch is faulty or the hardware that activates the switch is sticky

Your brake fluid level is probably low, causing the brake light to illuminate. Have it checked out and filled if necssary.

2001 ford taurus wont get out of park


Most of the time the problem is caused by the brake switch or the solenoid that locks the shifter in park.
When you turn the key on, power is applied to the solenoid and stepping on the brake cuts that power.

Check battery wires for tightness. That sounds likely to be the problem

Brake and battery light came on while driving.


The battery may not be charging, alternator, cable, or fuse problem.
The brake system may be low on brake fluid. The parking brake switch may be telling the light the parking brake is on.

Look under the dash by the parking brake and try to see if any wires are being moved or chafed by the parking brake linkages. That is what I have found in the past.

Brake slippage


It sounds like a wheel sensor is failing, this will trip the ABS and cause the brakes to feel a bit weird. You will need to press the brake harder to stop if the ABS getts tripped.

You have a blown brake lamp fuse.
Start the vehicle, depress the brake, and have someone observe to see if you have brake lights. No brake lights = no removal from park W/O pushing the over-ride switch.
FYI: Brake lamp fuse failures are most always created by a faulty trailer wire harness.

2002 HYUNDAI SANTA FE


I had the same problem with a 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe. While driving to work as I pressed on the gas the brake and battery light would come on. When I applied the brake, the lights would go off. When I got to work I turned the car off and then tried to start it, nothing. The car made a funny sound while running and I could smell somethig smoking. I replaced the alternator and all is good again. When removing the alternator the bottom lifts off the mounting bracket, you cannot drive the bottom bolt back through the mount as I tried to. Simply remove the nut on the bottom bolt and remove the top bolt, then lift the alternator out.

I have a similar situation but it turns out that I am also having an unsolved problem with my 2005 Ford 500 electrical system. Although it could be due to a weak battery I have reason to believe that its root cause that something is wrong with the brake light system. Sometimes when I drive the brake lights stay on and other times they don't. Yesterday, with my foot off the brake pedal (in Park) the brake lights would stay on until I lifted the brake pedal. Today, I can not get it to repeat the symptom nor could an expert auto technican find the problem within several minutes. The battery has been tested and found to have 40% of its life(?) remaining.
