Check the brake light switch. It is located up under the drivers side of the dash. It is either stuck on or it is out of adjustment.

If there is still a problem with your brakes take it back to the shop and they should look at it free. They should probably fix it too.

Why does my truck slow down when im not even braking?

The gearing system is designed to downshift as you are slowing down. These vehicles do not "free wheel" like the old ones did so you feel the drag when you slow down to a light. I even notice it when I go downhill, sometimes not even having to brake too much before coming to a stop on a slight grade. I imagine it does little for our fuel economy. If it were in a BMW or several other models I would blame regenerative braking but on a LR ,,,no.

My brake light stays on even though my ebrake is down? what is my car telling me?

Depends on car. But pretty much the same for most. The brake light can come on if the fluid is low in the master cylinder. Either from a leak or you need to change brakes. or the emergency brake switch is bad.

Hi. The front brakes on my 1991 nissan maxima are becoming really hot even after a short drive. not long ago the rotor and pads were replaced. I think the pads are staying too close to the rotor. Any ideas...

Even on a short drive the brakes will get pretty hot! As for the pads being to close... thats actually ok. Are they glowing red hot? You may want to take the brakes off and see if they were installed correctly....With that said most brakes can only be installed one way. You may have a sticky piston in the caliper or calipers.... That may be the issue. Also as Im not aware of your driving style or habits. Are you riding the brakes or hitting them hard? Hope this helps!

You are loosing power Because the Computer is Shifting the Transmission in to Traction Low to get out of the Situation. The ABS Light is coming on due to Wheel spin. It is telling you that there has been an Unexpected Incident and to slow down.
