Abs & brake warning lights come on. if i push the hand/emergency brake and then release it the warning lights turn off. when i ride the brake as i am coming to a stop and release the brake to drive...


{: ) Check first if your brake fluid is low. Better top it up at maximum level. Look also for possible brake fluid leaks. It can also be a fluid sensor or wheel speed sensors at fault. If the warning lights persist, I suggest a scan tool vehicle check to effectively pinpoint the main cause of the warning light issue.

I have a 2003 yukon xl that has the ABS light on and the brake light also on, also on the message box were the mileage appears it says service brake system


check brake fluid level first- if low add , second - look at wheels - if a lot of black/brown buildup on wheel- wheel cylinder could be leaking- warning lights tend to come on for a fluid problem

I have a 2001 Volvo S40, my brake lights are not working. I change the lights bulbs and fuse and still don't have brake lights?


My 2001 S60 just had the same issue. The "check brake light" error message on the dash and the brake lights not illuminating ( the upper center glass brake light would). I found that both bulbs had failed which I replaced. The fuse was okay but still the error message was found on the dash when the brake peddle was pressed. I purchasing a dealer $30.00 brake light relay and the problem is fixed. However, there isn't a diagram anywhere that shows which relay was for the brake light relay. In my 2001 S60, the relay is in the trunk, beneath the driver side removable upholstered cover. The relay panel has ~ 10ea of the same relays and a few other odd sizes. There is a vertical column of relays on the left and right. I found the brake light relay is located between two other relays on the upper right column. It was difficult to reach due to a larger relay on it’s right.

Brake lights don't work, light bulbs are fine


Upper brake light works fine, lower brake lights don't work at all, with CHECK BRAKE LIGHTS warning every time you step on the brake:

In the trunk, remove the fuse access panel on the drivers side.

The fuses are on the left, and on the right is a black board with a number of square, rectangular and flat (card?) switches that plug into the board.

On my 2001 S60 T4, there are four flat card switches near the top; one by itself, then a space, and then three in a row (see below):

----------------------------------

----------------------------------
----------------------------------
----------------------------------

When I began pulling the bottom one out, the lower brake lights worked and the warning went out. If I re-seated it completely the problem came back, but if I wiggled it out just a bit the problem goes away.smile.gif

If someone took the time to look at the electrical schematic you will see several grounds in the circuit My first place I would go would be to check all the Grounds and Connections for the Brake Fluid level control, Brake Warning Indicator
The Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) illuminates the brake warning indicator when one or more of the following occurs:
  • The body control module (BCM) detects that the park brake is engaged. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the BCM requesting illumination.
  • The electronic brake control module (EBCM) detects a low brake fluid condition. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the EBCM requesting illumination.
  • The electronic brake control module (EBCM) detects a closed brake pressure differential switch. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the EBCM requesting illumination.
  • The EBCM detects an ABS malfunction which disables dynamic rear proportioning (DRP) . The IPC receives a class 2 message from the EBCM requesting illumination.
  • The IPC detects a closed power brake booster alarm switch and closed power brake booster fluid flow alarm switch. The IPC illuminates the brake warning indicator and sends a class 2 message to the radio requesting the brake warning alarm.
  • The IPC performs the bulb check at the start of each ignition cycle. The brake warning indicator illuminates for approximately 3 seconds before turning OFF.
  • The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the BCM or with the EBCM.
Driver Information Indicators and Messages
The following indicators are used to inform the driver of several different factors.

Brake Warning Indicator
The Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) illuminates the brake warning indicator when the following occurs.
  • The Body Control Module (BCM) detects that the park brake is engaged. The IPC receives a serial data message from the BCM requesting illumination. The brake warning indicator flashes at a rate of approximately twice per second when the park brake is engaged.
  • The EBCM detects a low brake fluid condition or base brake pressure differential and sends a serial data message to the IPC requesting illumination.
  • The IPC performs the bulb check.
  • The EBCM detects an ABS-disabling malfunction which also disables Dynamic Rear Proportioning (DRP) and sends a serial data message to the IPC requesting illumination.

Here is a description of how the system works But i would check my Grounds and connections
