Power Steering fluid is completely different from brake fluid and NOT interchangable. Don't know your car but in most cases 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. Remember, your life depends on your brakes.
yes, the real question is, how different is its odor from brake fluid odor?
No. Brake fluid is not a petroleum product. Power steering fluid is. Petroleum product will swell and ruin rubber part's brake system is full of rubber parts. You will destroy your brake system using power steering fluid.
NO. In most vehicles the brake fluid is different from power steering fluid. It may work for a while, BUT is it worth taking risks with your brakes. Your life may depend on that.
The fluids can be a different viscosity or have a different make up. The steering system might not operate correctly, or could be damaged.
Your power steering will fail because brake fluid is poor lubricant.
no, but if you have a auto transmission you can you can use that for power steering
Both the power steering pump and the brake booster operate hydraulically. Putting brake fluid in the power steering pump will not harm it since brake fluid is a light oil only with different properties. I would only worry if it were the other way around and you put power steering fluid in the brake master cylinder. Power steering fluid doesn't have the heat range or density of brake fluid.
NO NO NO!!!! OMG I hope you did not try that already. Break fluid and powersteering fluid have different properties for different pressures, they are not the same thing and if you put break fluid in your power steering system you will destroy your car.
NO !! POWER STEERING FLUID IS SIMILAR TO TRANSMISSION FLUID... BRAKE FUILD IS LIKE NOTHING ELSE
NO ! ( My Ford Explorer uses automatic transmission fluid as the power steering fluid )
