Question about 2001 Hyundai Elantra

While driving my brake light in the dash boards comes on. It goes off when I press the brakes really hard but comes back on when I hit the gas to continue driving. Its happening more and more, just about everytime I drive now.

Could be a brake fluid problem..check the brake fluid reservoir under the hood, on the back firewall on the drivers side... if its low, add some brake fluid.. this should fix your current problem, but if you are losing brake fluid, there is a leak in the system somewhere and shoule be fixed

Have your brake system inspected, you have a fault somewhere...could be your low on fluid or you need to change your brakes....hard to know without inspecting.
Have a wonderful day.

VW golf mk4 press brake warning light not coming on


What brake are you talking about? The emergency brake or the brake pedal. Warning lights only come on when 1, there is a leak ing the system while driving and you loose pressure, 2. upon starting the vehicle as a bulb check, 3. When you apply the emergency brake. Have the brake switch on the pedal and emergency brake checked also check the bulb. If the bulb lit upon startup, it is probably the switch. Please give more details so that we can be better able to help you.

My suzuki verona 04, gear shifter is stuck on park, i have to hit the brakes severally for it to move to drive.


There is a lock mechanism that prevents moving shifter out of PARK unless your foot is on the brake. You can bypass this by sticking a small flat blade screwdriver or a key into the little slot on the console by the shift lever.

Are your brake lights coming on when you press the brake pedal?The shift lock is released electrically when your foot is on the brake, and the sensor is tied to the brake light switch circuit. The brake light switch can be seen if you look under the dash at the brake arm. First, check the connector. If the switch is out of adjustment, you can screw it in or out to adjust. Or just buy a new one.

Why wont my brake light turn off... they are on all the time


You most likely have a faulty stop light switch. I have provided you with a couple of pictures. The first one in black and white is where you will find the switch and the second one is a picture of what your switch should look like but may not be what is in the car but you will get the idea. What happens is when you press the brake pedal a little button on the switch opens and when it opens it completes an electrical circuit and turns the brake lights on. when you let off the brake pedal the pedal comes back up and pushes that button back in to close the circuit. it is most likeley stuck open and not pushing back in when the pedal goes back up. When you see it you will understand better. I hope this helps you and good luck.

Check if there's any Leakage underneath the car and all around the brake hose or galiper/drum, maybe you broke a line or busted a seal in a galiper or a brake cylinder if you have rear drum brake, when you did hit really the brake pedal ! Or check if there's any leak near the Brake Master Cylinder, it could be a bad Brake Master Cylinder ! Check if you didn't Loose a Pad too.. !

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.

Dashboard - brake and battery lights on when driving


You have a short on the brake light activation button on by the brake pedal. Clean the connections, make sure they are plugged in all the way. If that doesn't fix it, you probably have a short under your dash somewhere.
