not quite the battery light and brake light will only come on in these cars if the alternator belt broke off, the alternator is dead or if you have a wire crroded and a bad connection because the alternator light makes it come on but your brake light coming on by itsekf will not trigger your batterty light
It's probably your Alternator that is going bad. That is if the battery and brake lights came on at the same time.
yes i think cause the battrie runs of the alternator
ive put in brake fuild oil toped that up checked the battery level all ok still the battery light and hand brake light are still on...
brake light and battery light is on
could be that the emergency brake cable is stretched and the pedal has fallen down a bit.try lifting up on your emerg brake pedal
possible switch on emerg, possible ABS issue, may be low on fluid
Either the brake light switch or on brake pedal there is a button that pushes the switch and it fell out.
Park brake light - might mean the e-brake pedal is slightly moved down to initiate light. Battery light - means the alternator is bad or battery bad etc. Parking brake light also comes on when the brake fluid runs low... This happened on a 2003 kia Rio the next day the car died it is either because of a bad battery, alternator or alternator fuse
A battery that runs down overnight is normally caused by a dead cell in that battery. The only fix is to replace the battery. It can also be caused by any light that is left on, on the vehicle. Dome light, under hood light, trunk light, glovebox light, or even brake lights that our on due to a sticking brake light switch. A relay that is sticking can also cause this. Disconnect the negative battery cable and let the vehicle sit overnight. If the battery is still charged the next morning then you know the battery is good. If the battery is dead then you know the battery has a dead cell and must be replaced.
could be a bad alternator or battery
The button on your dashboard
Sounds like battery/alternator problems. Check battery first, it's cheaper to replace.
Battery and brake light coming on means the Alternator is not charging the battery . It could either mean a bad circuit connection or the alternator is just shot. Have the Alternator checked.
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.
The 2 lightsare not connected, they do not indicate the same problems. For a Honda I would be looking at the brake fluid level in the master cylinder, or the parking brake sticking on. There may be problems with theswitches that control the brake warning light at either of these locations also. The battery light usually indicates there is a problem with the charging system, usually the alternator, but in rare occasions may be a failure of the battery also.
Put some brake fluid in the master cylinder.
The most probable cause of both lights being on at the same time is a malfunction of each system. The brake light may illuminate because of a problem with the ABS unit, or because of low brake fluid. The battery light may illuminate because of a problem with the charging system, such as a malfunctioning alternator or dying battery. It could also be a problem common to both lights, such as a bad ground somewhere or an ECU problem.
Your alternator is not charging.
Alternator is dead or belt missing.
Having too much play in the emergency brake handle in the middle of the console could lead to the brake light flickering. At least this was true for me.
needs new alternator
Check your alternator, Mine did the exact thing. The Battery light and the !!BRAKE!! Light came on and couldn'y figure it out for the hell of me, did volt tests while running and only had 12.5 volts on the battery. I changed the alternator ($179.99) and got back to the normal 14 or so volts while running and lights shut off. no idea why the brake light was on at all.
A dead cell in the battery itself will cause it to drain overnight. The battery must be replaced if it has a dead cell. Also any light that is on will cause this. Brake, dome, under hood, trunk, glove box, etc. A relay that is stuck closed is another cause.
