Is it just a sensor if the ABS light comes on after checking the brake fluid of a 99 4runner?

the sensor is not always bad to cause the light to come on. Most of the time the abs sensor gets alot of brake dust, mud, rust, and other forms dirt on them you just need to clean the sensor with a blow gun or brake clean the sensor is usually located by the tire

I have the same problem - I was recommended a brake fluid drain and brake fluid sensor replacement - haven't done it yet, but hopefully it works. Dealer quoted me $190.

When anti-lock brake light comes on and goes off, it may be due to a malfunctioning wheel sensor. Another possible cause of this problem is a malfunctioning ignition switch.

brake light comes on on the dash

it indicates that it is time to change the pads for the disc brakes, the light comes on when the sensor is activated

It's just above the brake pedal, connected to the brake pedal arm. The switch comes out with two screws and the new one plugs in. But before you replace the switch, check the adjustment.

In your gauge cluster there is a brake light which lights up if the emergency (parking) brake is engaged or if the brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder is low ( in your engine compartment) Also there is an ABS brake warning light that comes on if something is wrong with the ABS braking system - fuse , sensor , wiring connection etc. If it's anything more than releasing your parking brake , get it checked by a professional.

The red brake light comes on when the p brake is set, the switch for the p brake is faulty, the brake fluid level is low, or the brake fluid level switch is faulty. If the abs light is also on, you will have codes in the abs computer too for an electrical failure of a sensor or switch..

try checking your brake fluid level. some of the older vehicles had a sensor that would "alert" the driver of the fluid level. some cars the brake light in the car would remain on until the fluid level is back to optimum. it may have disabled your abs from a lack of fluid

that light comes on when DSC (dynamic stability control) has been turned OFF or is off due to a malfunction such as a wheel speed sensor or brake pad sensor.

That Could be 1 of 2 things, ABS module or ABS wheel sensor. If it comes on when you start moving, it is most likely the ABS wheel sensor. If it does it all the time, most likely ABS module.

If you are talking about the brake sensors then it is time to replace the front brake pads. You should also check the rears while you are at it. When replacing the front brake pads you will also need to change the sensors also.

The front pads have a wear sensor in them. the light comes on when the pads get too thin. replace the pads and the light will go off.... like magic !

The parking brake light comes on when you engage the parking brake. Pull the parking brake release handle. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- the brake light also comes on if the brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder is low ( in your engine compartment )

Do a diagnostic check and it should shoot you a code out to you.It should be only a brake sensor it for wheel speed

A malfunction with the anti-lock brake system has been detected ( you still have " normal " braking unless the red " brake " light comes on in your dash ) It could be a fuse , a sensor , or some other problem

I know on my car it means it's time to change them. Most cars have a sensor installed on the brakes that will alert the driver when they get past a certain depth.
