The "brake" light in the dash is a warning light to indicate you have a serious problem with your brakes. Suggest you get it fixed immediatly.

Check oil light stays on


Your vehicle may have an "oil level" sensor built into the oil pan. If so, and the sensor is bad, the dash will constantly tell you that the engine needs more oil even if it does not. Checking the oil with the dipstick, a minute after the engine has been turned off on level ground is always the best way to check your oil. Try scanning the vehicles computer systems to see if there are any fault codes. The warning light may also be on a timer that just needs to be reset. The "Check Oil" light should be separate from the engine oil pressure warning light. As long as the engine oil pressure light stays off, you should be ok. Checking the oil pressure with a manual gauge would be a good idea as well.

I have a 2002 trailblazer that I drive to work in the morning and on my lunch break. When I leave work and drive 10 miles down the highway and get off the highway when i stop at the red light the oil...


Hello,

Please clarify for me! Are you saying all the guage lights come on? And are you for sure it is not the brake light coming on?

And have you checked your fluids, oil, brake etc,.

The only reason I ask is that, I have guages light up also, but usually it is either the brake light or the air-bag light and mostly as you stated, when I'm coming to a stop or braking or even driving under 40 mph! Never when I'm on the Interstate.

I have air in my brake lines causing the brake light to come on, which I need bled bad, the air-bag is a fluke, I don't even like them, let alone trust them! I'm still driving though!

I would say, it's okay to drive, no more than you are driving it, but...

If your check engine light comes on & off, most likely you are getting low on some kind of fluid or something needs to be fixed?

When you have a chance go to Advance Auto or Auto Zone and ask them to test your car for a faulty sensor or switch...they do it for FREE! They hook a diagnostic machine up to your car, doesn't take too long a few minutes maybe, it will tell exactly what is wrong.

Kind Regards!

My ABS light and emergency brake light comes on everytime I start my Ford Windstar, and they stay on when I'm driving around, even though my brakes are not on. Anyone have any idea what this means?


I think it means the Antilock Brake System is disengaged. So, a code has been stored in the abs computer. Standard obd tester cannot check these codes, must visit your dealer or some autoshop with ABS reader.

According with the service manual: During starting the RED brake light should briefly come on and then go off. If the RED light stays on, it indicates a problem in the main braking system, such as a low fluid level, or the parking brake is still on.

Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this).

Low coolant light,low oil and check engine light


Most likely it is the sensor, it is located on the radiator near the battery, it will stay off if you unplug it, Check the fuses and relays though just to make sure, oil pressure sensor possibly but again check fuses

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.

Light on dashboard with car and wrench lit up


This would be your engine check light. First off you need to check all your fluid levels. This includes windshield wiper fluid, brake fluid, oil, transmission fluid if it is an automatic. Remember that the transmission fluid on an auotmatic measuers in pints on the dip stick and not quarts even though it comes in quart bottles. The car must be in neutral and riunning while checking the fluid. Be sure you put the emergency brake on too just in case it ever slipped into gear. Things happen. Check radiator water level and power steering fluid.
With this light on it the computer will drop the engine into safe mode and have less power. If after all the fluids are filled and it is still on then it will be time to take it in and have the mechanic check the computer to tell you what needs repaired. This may cost 75 bucks or more but there is a thousand things that can turn that light on. Unless you can tell me if the car was acting up in any other features prior to the light coming on. If so then let me know and I will try to help you, Good Luck, The Raz

How do you get the brake light to go off.


the brake light comes on the dash either when the brake fluid is low in the resevoir , the fluid level switch is bad, or when there is a pressure problem in the brake system. the brake fluid level, though, is the most common. check to make sure the brake fluid is topped off. even though it may not look low, it may be low enough to light the light.

Brake light stays on in my 1998 monta carlo


It sounds like the switch above your brake pedal may be bad. When you push on the brakes, the switch pops out activating the brake lights, and when the pedal comes up, it presses the switch de-activating them. I don't know if that switch is directly tied in with the saftey light, but that should solve the no brake lights problem. You may want to check your fluid. Even though you may have good brakes, they could be a little worn, and have lowered your fluid level. That would be a good starting point. If the ANTILOCK light is on with your BRAKE light, It sounds like one of your sensors may have gone bad. You can find them pretty cheap. Hope that helps.
