is it the abs or e brake light? More than likely it is an abs sensor. cost about 50 bucks to have replaced on my car hope this helps. If it is the red brake light, there is low fluid or the e-brake pedal is sagging. Check the reservior and top it. If it is the orange brake light, you'll need to have the ABS system tested to determine the cause. Or you could blindly buy and install parts as a guess.

The brake light switch is located on a bracket behind the brake pedal support.

I work in the auto parts business and it is located under the brake pedal.

its the blinker control arm.if you move it back and forth you should see the two other brake lights go on as the brake is pressed.

It could be the brake fluid reservoir is low and is telling you that the brakes need attention.

There should be a bracket mounted on the steering column near the floor. This will have a switch in it that is a plunger type. When the shaft of the brake pedal is depressed, it comes into contact with this plunger and activates the brake light circuit. If you "ride the brakes", your brake lights will always be on because of the minimal pressure required to activate this circuit.

No , the brake light should come on when you press the parking brake pedal , but the ABS light should not come on

It a persons ABS light and brake lights are on they should fix the problem. This usually means fixing something within the brake system.

It should go on when the brake is on and off when you release the brake.

Should be HOT at one side of the brake light switch

Check the brake light switch, it's under the dashboard, connected to the brake pedal.

The most common cause would be a Low Brake Fluid situation in the Master Cylinder. Also, the ABS system has a balancing valve in the Fluid circuit. If the valve is not in the normal position for some reason, the ABS System should see this as a fault and turn on the light.

The 2001 Buick Century brake light switch is located beneath the dashboard, on the drivers side. The brake light switch should be labeled as such.

If you are speaking of the brake light on the dash, you may be low on brake fluid. Just fill the master cylinder with DOT 3 brake fluid, and the light should not come on anymore.

first check brake light fuse second check light bulbs,they should be double element third check the brake light switch located on the brake pedal

My 1991 Olds Cutlass Ciera had that problem and it was corrected by replacing the turn signal switch. Troubleshooting with the factory service manual pinpointed the problem. Paul S

If both brake light bulbs fail to come on when the brake is depressed I'd check first to see if there may be a fuse that controls the brake light circuit. If there is no fuse and/or the fuse appears to be okay, the most likely culprit is a faulty brake light switch. This switch is located up and behind the brake pedal. There is a plunger that moves in and out acting as a switch when the brake pedal is depressed. It is this switch which possibly may be the culprit.

yes, but the brake light configuration will be different. 70 look like "l l l l" 71 look like "= =" 72 look like "=="

Brake switch is bad. It should be at the top of the brake pedal under the dash.

Your Brake light is a warning light, it means something is wrong with your brakes, first you should check your pads for wear (if you feel a grinding sound every time you press the brakes they are shot), sometimes brake pads have wear indicators (a wire that when the pad wears surfaces closing a circuit and turning the light on), another possibility is low brake fluid level. Another yet is that one of the circuits has failed (there are two), If all these checks do not give you an answer, take it to a specialized brake shop, you don´t want to suffer the failure of your brakes when least expected, NEVER save mone on brakes, they are the most important system in your car.

Some brake light switches are only adjustable once.
