Check the emergancy brake cable- as it starts to wear, it stretches & leaves slack in the cable. There should be an adjustment to remove this slack. The tension in the cable pulls the lever to not make the switch for the brake light come on.
have you checked the sensor for the break fluid You can also check your parking brake, make sure it is all the way up and check the switch on it also for proper adjustment.
Start with an inspection and adjustment of the parking brake shoes by removing the rear brake rotors. If the brake shoes are good and they are adjusted up and you still need more adjustment, make final adjustments on the brake cables under the drivers side of the vehicle.
Check under the vehicle near the rear where the cable splits into left/right; you mayfind adjustment there.
Bad bulbs? Blown fuse? Brake light switch defective or out of adjustment
Check for a blown brake light fuse. Check for a broken or out of adjustment brake light switch.
The reason for the brake light's staying on are that the switch is faulty, To find the switch, look at the brake pedal and follow it up to just below the dash area, the switch is located on a bracket, pull off the wire's and unscrew it from the bracket. buy a replacement (about
check brake fluid in master cyclinder,make sure it is not low.also check emergency brake for being say 1/2 on or the emergency brake switch itself for out of adjustment.
Depends on the make of car, but most likely you are low on brake fluid. Check it before driving.
Check under the dash along the back side of the brake pedal arm, the brake light switch is mounted there. Some tomes it comes loose from the mounting and the adjustment is off and the arm does not make contact with the switch. This happened to mine.
Make sure brake fluid is at the proper level in the master cylinder Make sure parking brake is fully released
Like the one below? _________________________________________________________________ The dash can be made by repeating underscores. Usually on Word, if you start a long dash, it will extend to the other side.
depending on the vehicle it should have 2 defaults both connected to the brake pedal check to make sure they are not out of adjustment: 1) Electrical --make sure brake lights are working 2) Vacuum "Dump" valve
I believe that you are talking about a emergency brake symbol. Make sure that the parking brake is completely off. Good luck.
Check the simple switch below the hand break leaver. It can easily be bent out of shape so the contact does not make contact with earth. Also check the lamp in the dash
Check brake fluid level in master cylinder Make sure parking brake is released Check to see that parking brake switch has not come loose from its mounting bracket
Could be low brake fluid. Emergency brake could be partly on-make sure it is pulled completely in the up position.
You might want to check the brake light bulbs on both sides to make sure the are in correctly and clean sockets.
make sure the res- is full of break fluid
no , there is a problem
replace taillight bulbs first. filiment from brake light can break and make a connection to your park light. pressing brake pedal can light up your turn indicators, or even park/dash lights
Your brake fluid is low or your parking brake switch is going bad or out of adjustment. make sure the brake fluid reservoir is full, and check your brake pads first. as your pads are consumed the fluid level will drop.
That depends on the individual vehicle. There is an adjustable electric switch under the dash that is actuated by the brake pedal movement. Normally this switch can be adjusted from having the brake lights on all the time to never having them come on at all. Obviously the correct adjustment is to light the lights when the pedal has moved a short distance but before the brakes are actually being applied.
First make sure rear service brakes are adjusted properly Parking brake adjustment should either be at the junction of the three cable under vehicle or at the parking brake handle (May have to remove trim to access)
Check the level of brake fluid in master cylinder - if low could be indicator that brake pads are worn and need replacement or leak in system and needs attention. Check to make sure that parking brake is fully released
