If your handbrake is on or if the brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder in your engine compartment is LOW , the " brake " light in your dash will light up

Just turn the key to on (second) position - where you see all the lights come on the dashboard and wait till the brake wear indicator light go off. If you replaced the tripped brake wear sensor, the light will go off in about 10-15 seconds...

First check that the alternator is working normally. Then, check that all four wheels have braking when lifted off of the ground and brake pedal depressed and transmission in neutral. Next, check that transmission fluid level is normal. After that check that the parking brake applies and releases normally. If all of the above are okay, the problem is likely a problem with the light and not the brakes.

I saw this same indicator and contacted my local Toyota Service Dept. He stated that the orange car indicator with dash marks coming off the rear meant a Tail or Brake light(s) were out and needed a new bulb(s). Hope that helps!

The 1994 Toyota Camry emergency brake light switch can be found beneath the drivers side dashboard. The emergency brake light switch will be beneath the far left hand side of the dashboard.

You will need to change the brake light switch. The brake light switch can be found below the dashboard on the drivers side.

The brake light switch can be found below the dashboard on the drivers side of the passenger compartment. The brake light switch simply plugs in and out.

A dashboard light appearing when brake pedal is depressed usually means brake fluid is low.
