Question about 2001 Toyota Avalon
Brake fluid level is fine & no leaks anywhere. Brake pads all ok. Have replaced both the park and foot brake switches.
The brake fluid level sensor in the master cylinder is stuck in the lower position which completes the circuit to illuminate the light.. Try tapping lightly on the side of the reservoir to loosen it. If that does not help, you will need to replace the level sensor.
Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

If the float is blocked in the brake fluid reservoir, then it will indicate that there is low brake fluid.Actually its full, but still it will indicate, that its low fluid, due to stuck-up reservoir float.Many a times there is air bubbles got created in the fluid reservoir and this cause the problem. Just get the fluid drained and refill the fluid to its required level, then check.Also get the filter checked.If its blocked or clogged.It has to be replaced.The clogged filter does not allow the float to properly float up to the connection point and causes the brake light to go on.------------ if all checked ok, then another possibility is the parking brake engagement sensor, a mechanical switch that is engaged when the parking brake lever is activated. It may have gotten stuck in the on position and need to be cleaned or replaced.------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.
