You need to open the master cylinder resevoir and make sure its full with brake fluid. Chances are you have a leak somewhere and need to look all around the car for puddles of fluid. The dinging that you are hearing is from the brake fluid sensor located in the master cylinder to warn you of low levels. After you have found the leak it would be a wise decision to bleed the brake system to remove the air pockets in the lines.

You have a problem with the brake system. it could be a broken line, bad wheel cylinder etc. this will cause brakes to go all the way to the floor. that is probably why light is on. also check condition of brakes. have a good day !!

2003 gmc envoy emergency brake light is on and there's a ding ding ding ding nouse. checked brake fluid. How do I stop the Noise or fix it


the noise is telling you the emergency brake is on (or it thinks it is) emergency brakes don't use any fluids as they are totally mechanical on your truck , id first try setting the brake and then releasing it again , if this still doesn't clear the light on then id have your mechanic look at it , might require an adjustment

id be cautious in driving it if theres any possibility that brake is dragging as this will severely overheat your brakes requiring you to replace them early

Brake trouble shooting


First off make sure you have brake fluid in your reservoir. Secondly if brake fluid is at the full line. I would try bleeding the brakes. This takes two people. On each cylinder there is a bleeder valve. Start with the drivers front with the engine off have somebody pump the brakes 3 or 4 times then hold it to the floor. open the bleeder valve and the break will go to the floor shut the brake bleeder valve. And repeat 2 more times. " MAKE SURE YOU CAN CHECK YOUR BRAKE FLUID AT EACHthe STEP AND REFILL RESERVOIR AS NEEDED".Then move to the next 3 until complete. If this does not fix your problem most likely you have a bad master cylinder. Good luck.

My ABS light has been on for a while and today I hit the brakes and they turned spongy. Then I pushed the pedal some more and the brake pedal went right to the floor. Then the emergency light came on and I...


I hope you have enough sense to stop driving it and stop added brake fluid

Lets review:

ABS Light is on--You may have an ABS System failure,do we continue to drive it, no
But you did,you said awhile
Spongy brakes--normal,I don't think so
Brakes go to floor--how many things can cause that,maybe 2
Emergency Light--now were in big trouble,no brake fluid
Added Brake Fluid---no fluids are consumed on a motor vehicle
any fluid loss is from a leak and requires repair
You never top off any fluid,don't need to

You have an older vehicle with rusted out brake lines
You need to buy brake tubing,cut,bend,flair and fabricate new ones
No vehicle in history, ever had brake lines made for replacement

My brake light is on and it keeps ding ding dinging and its very anoying because the E-brake is off. my problem is i lost the cover for my fuse box under the dash, so i dont know what one to pull to stop...


First, do not attempt to bypass a safety related issue by pulling a fuse. The brake light and alarm signal is performing it's designed function by indicating a fault that needs to be corrected.

Check the brake system completely. The Brake fluid level sensor could be low. Now rather than just add fluid, keep in mind that the level may be low because the brakes are worn. Worn pads & shoes cause the calipers to extend which requires additional fluid, causing a "low" fluid level.

Also check to ensure the ABS sensors are OK.

Yes sounds like serious problem, especially the harder to stop, If you mean the car just isn't stopping as fast and included with the pedal getting closer to the floor sounds like you have a brake fluid leak. Might be leaking from a line maybe the master cylinder or caliper or wheel cylinder, any which way probably should get checked out.

My 1999 buick lesabre has a dinging noise when a brake sensor


This means your master cylender is low on brake fluid , top it off with brake fluid and that should solve your problem . You should find out where the brak fluid is going .

Emergency break pedal stuck to floor, but break is disengaged


sounds like your brake cable has broken or there is something damaged in the pedal assembly.........try pulling on the release handle and move the e-brake pedal back to its off position by hand at the same time.(you may have to tie it in this position to keep it up)If that doesnt work there is a sensor on the pedal assembly that you should be able to bypass by either disconecting the wire(1 wire system) or connecting the two wires together (2 wire system)Especially if your truck is a standard the e-brake is an important safety feature,so if these steps fix the light and dinging problem you should still take the steps to have it repaired.
hope this helps.........Good Luck!
