About 2 weeks ago my brake like started coming on and staying on for a short period of time(longer than it does when you first start the car) My brakes seem to be working fine, my emergency brake isn't engaged at all....any suggestions? Also...where to do I look to check the brake fluid?

Hello, You should see an object under the hood on the Drivers side. This object will be round and look like 2 frying pans laying with 1 up and 1 down and will be mounted to a body part called the Firewall. Bolted on this part will be the Master Cylinder and it will have a plastic bowl hopefully full of Brakefluid. There is a "Fill" line running along the top edge.

You can go to Autozone, Oreillys. and Advance autoparts for help on your car. They will put in Batteries, windshield wipers, and run a scanner on your vehicle for free. They will tell you what type of Brakefluid you need and can tell you if it needs some fluid.

I would not add Fluid more than once without having the Brakelines checked or the wheel Calipers looked at for leakage problem. The Fluid level will drop slightly as the Brake linings wear, but the level should not change even Monthly without there being a problem.

I hope my solution is very helpful in solving your concerns, and it is good that you are not ignoring what your car may be telling you.

Any good API (American Petroleum Institute) approved oil will be fine (stamped on bottle) 10w-30 or 10w-40 will work,

Side lights stay on perminantly,car turned off.

I can not tell you what is shorting, however if you have a car manual you will see circuit breakers in the fuse panel. The quick resetting sounds like circuit breakers working. You may be able to feel the clicking if you put your finger on the breaker. Then remove it and see what does not work. You may be able to isolate the problem enough to trace it. Good Luck
