Question about Peugeot 405

1 Answer

Loud low hum coming from the front of the car when accelerating. The handbrake/brake fluid light occasionally flickers on as I'm driving too. I recently hit the curb quite ******* the front left wheel. Do you think if I top up the brake fluid I'll be ok or have I done some damage? I'm not sure if the two symptoms are likely to be related. The car is a Peugeot 206 (this doesn't seem to be an option below).

Hi ea
Im dave

The loud low hum sounds like a wheel bearing although i cant actually hear it. Does the sound get louder on right turns? Brake light coming on usually means low fluid check your fluid resorvoir if it below the max mark fill to the max mark. If it has run dry you probably need to bleed your brakes. The light however could mean your handbrake isnt fully released. Be sure it is all the way off if fluid level is adequate and the positioning of the cable is not kinked somewhere under the handbrake.

My suzuki Baleno the handbrake light comes on going around corners, and the check engine light comes on usually when I speed up


low brake fluid, what year/ lost the operators guide, ?
the light glows for 3 reasons, or 4. (depends on year)
hand brake, fluid, abs (rwal) , and brake failure front or rear
the check engine light coming on is (maybe) and engine fault
again no year, stated, but it means to scan the ECU to get the
errors. connect scan tool, press scan, bingo.,
on some years,1997 and above, it also reports, A/T errors.

My handbrake light keeps flickering on my 1996 vw golf convertible


this could simply be a loose connection on the handbrake switch but this light is also the brake fluid level warning light so it might be a good idea to check the brake fluid level too. also it might be part of the brake pad warning system ane may indicate that the brake pads are nearing replacement it is also required to replace the warning wires with the pads


let me know if this helps

cheers mike

Handbrake warning light flickers on and off when the handbrake is off.?


The brake light will illuminate when the hand brake is on and when the brake fluid is low. Have you checked to make sure the brake fluid is full in the master cylinder reservoir?

The handbrake light remains on the dashboard when released why is this?


Try to wiggle the handbrake a little and see if it will go out. Sometime the cables get a little stretched and that is just enough not to turn the light off. If you can get the light to flicker when wiggling the the lever you may need to adjust the cable tension a little and that may take care of it. I would also check the fluid level in the master cylinder just to make sure that the brake fluid level is not what is causing the light to come on. If the fluid is low you may want to have your brake system inspected.

Brake light flickers while driving down the road.


Check the brake fluid. It may be just low enough to occasionally turn the light on as you hit bumps and it sloshes a little. Add a little brake fluid to the reservoir and check the brake pads all around.

Brake warning light on,beeper sounds when car is driving


Sounds like the sound when you leave the handbrake on. The same light as the low brake oil level will come on with the handbrake. And the warning sound coming from the cluster will come on if you leave the handbrake on and start driving to warn you that you left it on. Guessing your handbrake is not on and that your brake level sensor on the master cylinder is good (on the cap) check your handbrake switch and the wires there. You can unplug it and try it like that or you might have to bypass the 2 wires in the connector together. I can't remeber if with the handbrake on if it closes the circuit or the opposite. Once you have the connector in your hand you can unplug it with the car running and see if the light goes off. If not you can jump the 2 wires and see then. Or just check the switch isn't staying stuck. You'll see more once the handrake console is off. Just look around the mechanism of the handbrake and you'll find the switch.
