Answer

It means something is wrong with the brake system. Check fluid level first; if it is low, refill it and test the brakes again. Also check that your emergincy brake is fully released. Be sure the parking brake pedal (if it is a push one) is all the way up. Either way, don't delay getting it checked soon.

Answer

Have you checked to see if you are out of brake fluid?

If is a Honda Accord 1992 2 door, you may need to check for bad bulbs/loose connections.

Answer

The brake light in my car can come on if the parking brake pedal does not come up all the way when I release it. One of the cables going to the rear drums has rust in it causing it to bind and not release all the way.

It may indicate that brake system hydraulic pressure is too low to safely stop the car.

If the light is on all the time, ensure that the parking/emergency brake is fully released. If the light only comes on when you press down on the brake pedal, check to ensure that you have the proper level of brake fluid in the reservoir and that you have no air in your brake lines. You may need to bleed the air from the brake lines.

Check the brake light bulbs to ensure that all of them are working. Some cars can sense a bad bulb and notify the driver by illuminating the brake warning light.

If the light is in the center of what looks to be a tire with tread then it is the low tire pressure warning light. If the light is in the center of a symbol that looks like this (o) then that is the brake light warning. It can mean your parking brake is on or there is a problem with the brake system. Check the level of the brake fluid in the master cylinder resivoir.

The transit brake warning light, on a Ford, can be reset by changing the brake pads. If the warning light is still on after changing the brake pads remove the fuse for 10 seconds.

Master cylinder low on brake fluid or parking brake not totally released

Check the brake fluid level, as on many vehicles the "emergency brake" (in the UK, Hand-brake) warning light also acts as a warning light for low brake-fluid.

You might be out of brake fluid. Our rear wheel cylinder was leaking and ran ours out of fluid and the light came on.

This warning light means that you need to add brake fluid to your car. Improper fluid levels can cause brake malfunction resulting in an accident.

If the " BRAKE " warning light comes on in your dash either the BRAKE FLUID LEVEL IS LOW in the brake fluid reservoir located in the engine compartment of your 1995 Ford Mustang or the parking / emergency brake is engaged

User Avatar

That warning light means a light bulb is out. Check all of your brake lights (including the brake light on the rear dash!)

If the handbrake is not engaged, and the warning light is coming on, it may mean that there are components in the braking system that require maintanence. Or, it could mean that the master cylinder is low on brake fluid.
