THat is not only your hand brake warning light but that is also the warning light for your brake system. IF you are not capable of servicing your braking system get it looked at by a service center right away this is not something that you want to take chances with. Check your brake fluid in the reservoir to start and if it is empty add some and make sure that it is not leaking out!

Brake light on dash staying on. Released nuts on hand brake but doesn't go away.


The BRAKE warning light on many cars is also a warning light for error conditions with the brake system. You did not specify the YEAR, MAKE, MODEL or ENGINE of your vehicle, so I can only guess that the BRAKE light is warning you of either excessive wear on one or more of your brake rotors, or of lack of pressure or fluid in the system. I would strongly recommend that you do not drive the vehicle until you have the brake system examined, as you may lose brakes entirely.

Dashboard warning brake light stays on continuosly nissan altima


Try this, Since you are applying the hand brake. Manually pull up on the emergency pedal and see if the light goes out. If this does work then you could have one of several problems. but, I am thinking that you might be able to adjust the brake tensioner if this car has one.

I.P Brake light is staying on.. what does this mean


Hi,

Offhand, the brake light warning on most dashboards would indicate that the hand/emergency brake is engaged. If even when the hand/emergency brake is disengaged or is in normal position and the light is still lit, it could indicate that:
  • the brake fluid in the reservoir is below minimum level;
  • and possibly the brake shoes/pads need replacement.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
