It could also mean that your parking brake is on, so try engaging and disengaging it if it isn't on. Try otherwise filling up the reservoir so that it is full. If it still doesn't go off, then you might have an electrical short. Let me know what you find out.

2003 Ford Escort ZX2 Brakelights are not working

It's common for the brake light switch to go out. It's not too difficult or expensive to replace. It's located on the brake pedal assembly under the dashboard.

The brakelights show on the dashboard of my 2002 hyundai accent...what does it mean?

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
If your seeing the brake symbol it is usually telling you that the break fluid in the reservoir is low. Check the break fluid level. If it is low fill it with DOT3 or DOT4 Brake Fluid to the high mark. Do not over fill it. Only up to the high / full level. If you do NOT service the reservoir soon you will start introducing air into your brake system and will have to bleed the entire system. You can purchase brake fluid at any automotive parts supply and most of the full gas stations.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Abs light on acura 2.3 cl 98. it goes on and off. I added some acura brakefluid, now light is off.

When you drive the brake pads wear down as a normal part of driving. When they get about half worn the amount of fluid in the master cylinder will be low because it takes more to fill the wheel cyliinders. Low brake fluid causes the light to come on. This is all normal.

The gear-shifter solenoid or brakelight switch has failed.

To check the brakelight switch, start the car and step on the brake. If the brakelights don't come on, the switch is faulty. You'll find the switch under the dashboard above the brake pedal.

If the brakelights came on, your shifter solenoid is probably bad. In this case, here's a quick-and-dirty fix to get you moving...

Look for a small plastic cover next to the gear shift. Pop this off with a fingernail or small flat screwdriver. There will be a hole beneath the cover. Push a small screwdwiver down that hole untill you feel some resistance. You should now be able to shift out of park.

Be warned...this trick allows a shift even without touching the brake. So get the solenoid fixed as soon as you can.

Good luck !

You have a brake light switch on your brake pedal. First check to see that the switch is closing when the pedal is off. Then check your light bulbs and fuses for the tail lights.
