You never have to take any vehicle, to any dealer, ever
Don't want to sound like I dislike them,they just don't fix much, and charge too much,compared to a local shop ,close to your home.
I would go down the street to a repair shop, and ask a few questions, and you may find they will clear your lights for free,with their scanner,in hope of your future business.

1990 Toyota 4runner 2.8l Diesel. Looses all power uphill and has brakes siezed on (i think).. not handbrake, only foot brake. Wont go over 40km/hr when this happens. It is spontaneous and not constant....

From what you describe I would say that there is no fluid in the reservoir and the brake light on is from the fact that the fluid level is too low. That would account for the loose brake feeling. I would check the fluid level and if it is low or non existent then you have 2 options . Go back to the mechanic? and give him a serve as the job was not done properly and go to an accredited brake shop and have the brakes fixed properly. They may also be able to explain the brakes coming on --- possibly a failing booster

brake switch bad, system needs bled, rear brake circuit probably has air in fluid, fluid is no doubt contaminated, nobody addresses this maintainance problem, bleed entire brake system, replace all fluid w/ new. if fluid in the master cylinder is black, seals are bad, some brake systems have a pump as part of master cylinder, these pumps run off fuses , 25amp, etc., check what system you have. is your fluid level correct ? the switch I refer to is @ proportioning valve below master cylinder @ frame, see abs brakes use this valve to prevent skidding, rear brakes must come on first, before front brakes. if valve is not in balance a hard brake pedal occurs, as with low fluid levels. does your brake light come on ? @ dash. have a brake shop bleed your system, if there's a problem they'll find it for you, let them do it, don't wast your time.

Parking brake light is on

The light can come on when the brake fluid is low in the reservoir. Check the brake fluid level and add as necessary using only brake fluid from a sealed container.

If the fluid was low check the brakes. Low fluid can indicate a possible leak in the brake system or worn out brake parts.

Sounds like a brake light. Check your brake fluid and fill to the correct level if low then see if it goes out.

The Brake light says "BRAKE" is the Brake System Warning Light: "This light monitors various brake functions, including brake fluid level and parking brake application. If the brake light turns on, it may indicate that the parking brake is applied, that the brake fluid level is low, or that there is a problem with the anti-lock brake system (if equipped)."

Another is the Anti-Lock Brake System Light: "This light monitors the Anti-Lock Brake System. The light will turn on when the ignition switch is turned to the ON position and may stay on for as long as four seconds. If the ABS light remains on or turns on while driving, it indicates that the Anti-Lock portion of the brake system is not functioning and that service is required. However, the conventional brake system will continue to operate normally if the BRAKE warning light is not on."

It could also be the Tire Pressure Monitoring light. Check the brake fluid first and see if that fixes it.

My brake light came on in my 1995 toyota camry

The first thing to check is the brake fluid level. If it is low than top it off with brake fluid only!!!! The light should go out. The next thing to do if this is the case is check the brakes. Low brake fluid is a good indicator of either the brakes getting worn out or a leak in the brake system.

If the fluid is full make sure the emergency brake is not on. This will also cause the brake light to come on.

Check light on airbag light on low brake performance, pad just replaced 2 weeks ago What can be the problem, please? Venu

to determine the reason for the check engine light, bring your vehicle to a local autozone to have it scanned for this (its free). air bag light indicates air bag system malf, possible faulty impact sensors. As for the brakes, I recommend bringing back to the shop where they performed the repair. They need to re-bleed the system!!

1999 Toyota Corolla Seca - hatchback. the tail

If you put your foot on the brake, the tail lights and parking lights will still come on. Possibly your brake is sticking. Check to see if it is and if it is put WD40 for a quick fix. See a tech for them to fix your brake alignment. Good Luck!

Brake light is show up most of the time

Brake lite on? Check master cylinder. Low on fluid. Your front brake pads are probably low also.
Cig lighter/clock/mirror and probably the dome light out too? Check fuses under dash.
