Bleeding backs is there a system too do

Bleeding Your Brakes to remove air and replace the fluid.

There is a good video in the link below on that from a qualified mechanic.
(Just do not touch any brake parts that will contact the brake fluid with dirty gloves as you will contaminate the brake fluid). Wear some decent nitrile gloves (or at least latex gloves) when working with brake fluid. Don't get any brake fluid on your skin.
Keep the brake fluid well away from any painted surface as it will remove the paint in a few seconds).

In extreme cold my brake lights come on draining the battery of my 2003 accord, help

Water in your brake fluid expands when it freezes increasing the pressure on you brake fluid causing your brake lights to come on. Drain all of the brake fluid and replace it. This is not a job for a shade tree.

Water gets into your brake fluid because the fluid gets warm when the brakes are used, then cools off. It is called condensation.

Brakes will not bleed, air in lines, not getting fluid to brakes

check the brake booster a lot of times they will leak on the inside of the firewall and run down under the carpet inseide look under the dash where the brake pedal rod goes thru the fire wall and see if there is and brake fluid coming thru
to bleed brakes by myself i use a bottle of brake fluid and get a hose the size of the bleeder on the brakes and put the hose over it and put the other end in the brake fluid open the bleader a little and pump the brakes air goes out and it will pull the fluid back in

Im trying to bleed my brakes, why do i need the brake fluid in the bottle?

If your doing a one man brake bleed, you would have a tube attached to the bleeder valve,
the other end submerged in brake fluid, so when your pumping the brakes to bleed the air
bubbles out, no air can go back into the brake system. good luck!

You need to bleed the brakes and get all of the air out of the system.

Parking brake light

The parking brake and the low brake fluid use the same light. If it comes on during acceleration, your brake fluid level is low and you need to add some brake fluid or replace your pads. The brake fluid gets low as the pads wear as the whole system is hydraulic. Another possibility is a brake fluid leak. As you accelerate, the fluid gets pushed back causing the low brake fluid light to turn on.
