Listen to solve it is there might be 2 problems 1First is like dougbender said & the second one is when ur checking the brake fluid the is a switch on the cap of the of the brake fluid in order to see where the switch is working or not u will have to do a simple thing remove the socket on the cap & put a small piece of wire on both the pins of the socket & if the light goes off the u will have to replace the cap don't forget to put on the switch while testing

Check the brake fluid level and check the park brake switch it may be stuck on or out of adjustment

Most of the time this can be solved by hooking up a dyanostic computer to your car and "clearing" the memory sometimes the car just forgets to turn the lights off

Procedure for replacing rear rotors with disc brakes and abs on ford ranger 2010

I will try to give you a heads up on this job. The hard part is the emergency brakes hidden inside the rear rotors. You need to get slack from the self adjusters on the brake cable where the cable spools up under the dash on the emergency brake activator. Once you get a little slack, then you can shove the emergency brake levers to their neutral position. This will create slack inside the emergency brake drum and allow you to remove the rear rotor like you normally would for a front rotor. Otherwise the emergency brakes will create problems for removing the rotors.

If you have only worked on front rotors, the rear set is more difficult due to the emergency brakes. Get high quality replacement linings for the emergency shoes. Get new pins and mounting springs to secure the linings to the housing.

You may find some good Youtube videos for this repair. Or you may be better off to do the fronts yourself and take it in for the rear set. Realize there are more parts to buy for the rear since there are 2 sets of brakes back there. I do not like this system because it is not durable and the drum portion rusts to the point of uselessness. If you find a company to give a lifetime warranty for this repair you would be ahead.

98 Dodg3 Durango emer brake is released,red light is on &when put in gear it's as driving with emer brakes on recently serp belt changed trans belts adjustd..transfercase have anything to do with it

The red brake light also means there is a problem with regular brakes , not just for emergency or parking brake . This light if on an emergency brake is released you have front disc brake problems or you have a brake fluid leak an the master cylinder is empty ! The transfer case has nothing to do with the brakes ! Have a qualified repair shop check it !

Emergency lever switch is stuck

More likely it's the adjustable switch under your brake pedal if your brake lights won't turn off. Emergency brake lever does not turn your brake lights on at all. If you are referring to your brake light on the dash, sometimes that is also an indication that your brake fluid is low. Emergency lever switch going bad is very rare.

My dodge durango 2001 is saying brake p !

Thats is the light for your parking brake, it could be as simple as the brake has been slightly engaged. i.e. it was accidently pressed down just enough to turn the light on, but not engage the brake, getting in or out of the durango. It could aslo be signaling that there is a problem with the parking or emergency brake. In most cases the Emergency/Parking brake is in the rear rotors. If your mechanicly inclined that would be a good place to start if you have never done rear brakes yet feel confident enough to try it i would recommend getting a haynes or chiltens manual . If all else fails and you cant find anything wrong take it to a reputable brake shop, Brakes are the one thing on your vehicle you dont want to "hope" it fixes itself or leave to chance.

How many speed sensors does a 1998 dodhe durango 5.2 4x4 have??

i have a 98 durango 5.9 4x4 ive issues with the abs and brake light popping up off and on it is now happening more frequently especially when its raining, recently i replaced my abs module, calipers,pads, brake hoses and rotors the light discontinued popping up for about a week or so but its at it again and doesnt want to go away. before i replaced rotors brakes etc. i had an issue with my front passenger wheel rolling a little bit of white smoke out it heated up the rotors and everything else pretty good i think it may have caused the abs wheel speed sensor to start malifunctioning, i would appreciate any opinions or in put if possible

The brake light comes on, on the dash. Brakes work O.K.2003 mercury grand marquis. 112000 miles. the dealer says the pads are good.

Make sure your emergency brake pedal is all the way up, because sometimes if it goes down one notch, that can trigger that light to come on..It wont be enough to drag or slow the sar down, but it will be enough to turn that light on...Also even though your brakes are good..double check your break fluid level...

Brake lights on my 98 Durango won't light up brighter

if the brake lights work but are not very bright means they are not getting the full amount of voltage to them. the circuit board in the tailight could be bad or corroded not letting power get through also could be in the brake light switch.

Brake lights out; bulb, fuse okay

Sounds like you need to replace your brake light switch.  It is located on your brake pedal and you should be able to pick it up for around $20-$30 at your local parts store.
