try releasing the brake This happened to me, too, after I used the brake (which I don't do often, but I was parked on a steep hill). I assumed e-brake cable or something was simply stuck. In other words, I wasn't too concerned. Turns out the brake light was on because my brakes desperately needed to be replaced. Once I did that, the light went out. So in my case it was just a coincidence. Perhaps in yours, too. (Eventually the light stayed on all the time.)
emergency brake light stays on
If the light stays on when the emergency brake is not engaged, this indicates the brakes are getting low and need to be replaced.
You have air in your brake lines. Have the brakes bled.
it does that on mine becsue the brake doesnt work if ur break works its probally a short or something
fluid might be low,emergency brake might not be fully released.
Either the BRAKE FLUID LEVEL IS LOW in the brake master cylinder in your engine compartment or your parking brake / emergency brake is still engaged
Either your parking brake ( emergency brake ) is on or the brake fluid level in your brake master cylinder in your engine compartment is LOW
The "Emergency Brake Light" IS A FAULT WARNING LIGHT not park brake light onlyThis means if the LIght stays on THERE IS A SERIOUS SAFETY PROBLEM with your brakes.You brakes need to be checked before you have a COMPLETE BRAKE FAILURE and crashTake you Van to a qualified person BEFORE YOU DIE
The emergency brake is on?
Problem with the ABS, take it to a pro.
First off check ur brakes in front but with e-brake causing it to glow brighter then most likely check the back brakes. ANSWER Check your brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder in your engine compartment . The brake light comes on when your brake fluid level is low , or your emergency brake is on.
When the ABS and Brake light come on, it means there is a problem in the ABS and Brake system. If the issue is resolved and the light stays on, a person can use a scanner and clear this light.
Defective or misadjusted, brake light switch.
The battery light stays on when the alternator is over or under charging. The red brake light stays on when the parking brake is set or the fluid is low. The abs light stays on when the abs computer detects a malfunction and sets a code.
brake light swith located under the brake pedal is stuck.
The brake lights work without the key on, so you have a problem with your brake light switch.
It could be brake fluid, badly adjusted emergency brake sensor, some other problem with the brakes... a dealership code scanner can tell you what's wrong.
emergency brake lights are controlled by a switch usually at the lever or nearby, you can disable it by crossing the wires but it is better to replace it so that you are not driving around with the brake on by accident try cleaning the switch first so that it goes in and out easily.
Either the brake fluid in the reservoir is low (most cars have a fluid level sensor in the reservoir) because you need new brake pads, or maybe the emergency brake cable is not adjusted properly. Try putting your foot under the emergency brake pedal and pulling up.
brake light switch is broken or out of adjustment. brake light switch is located above brake pedal.
If you are referring to the brake light then the brake light switch is stuck.
I have a 1992 Vandura and the dash brake light stays on when the brake fuse is blown. Check and replace the brake fuse if it is blown. My ABS sensor light comes on and stays on sometimes because I changed my brakes and didn't bleed the ABS system,There was still air in the line. I bled all brakes countless times, but neglected to bleed the ABS system. I own a 93' vandura....love machine
With an ohmeter or a self-powered test light. Hook the two leads of your tester to the terminals on the brake light switch. Push down on the brake pedal and if the light stays off or the meter stays at infinity, the switch is bad.
check brake fluid
