You have a brake problem. Start by checking fluid before you drive next.
AnswerIndicator light on dash? Check fluid level in master cylinderMake sure parking brake is fully releasedCheck Brake fluid levelI have a 1996 Tacoma 2.7L and my brake indicator light on the dash is always on. So- here's how to check what's wrong... Start truck, release parking brake, if light is on, push the parking brake handle in/towards dash, if light goes off then you have a bad spring (like my truck does) or the like on the parking brake handle. That's all. Sometimes when I drive, I push it in/light goes off and then the handle works it's way out again and the light comes back on.
Start with replacing the bulb.
its a rear bulb failure indicator if it comes on when brake is first depressed it is a brake light bulb if it is on when you start the car it is a ride light or park light
The "3rd" brake light has been out since at least 1994.
try your brake light swtich on the brake pedal and check wires
check the play in your rear brake lever, may be too tight and activating the brake light switch. or the front brake lever may be depressing the switch in the control housing. or you have a bad switch. or, when you rewired it, after installing that cool skull tail light, you got the running light wire and the brake light wire backwards.

your altnaitor is out
Start with the light sensor on the brake pedal arm.
Start with: Check fuses, brake light switch (at brake pedal), check for trailer harness problems, check bulbs.
Adjust or replace stop lght switch
Light bulbs have always used watts.
The brake light switch in the hand brake is probably broken or the tab that pushes it is bent. You can also see if your throttle controle is pushed all the way up to the master cyclider.
gas line and a brake light also a kick start for if it breaks down from no battery you can kick start it.
I would start by cheking the brake fluid level. It settles down during the night and wen you start driving the fluid shakes enough to turn the brake fluid level sensor out. Maybe it is time to have a look in your brake pads, as they worn out your brake fluid level goes down. And normally that's the brake pads maintenance warning light. Good luck! Cheers Pedro
If the parking brake / emergency brake is on , or if the BRAKE FLUID LEVEL in your brake master cylinder in the engine compartment is LOW , and probably before you start the engine when you turn your ignition key to the RUN position just to make sure the bulb for the warning light works
AnswerIf this were my car, I would replace the brake light switch ( near the brake pedal ). This could be the problem and is about the cheapest thing to start with. Good luck.check the ground connection at the taillights a bad ground will cause this
Start with checking the bulbs andthe fuse.
if the check brake light is on, the accumulator is bad. this part will run 700.00for a rebuilt one. the other option is to replace the brake system with a non anti-lock brake system
Not knowing the exact vehicle (on the other side of the world), I would suggest having a look at the brake switch which will be on the top of the brake pedal arm. Your switch may be out of adjustment, or damaged. This is the first place to start, and if its a brake light switch, most auto electricians should be able to supply them for less than $20US,

Power steering fluid is completely different from brake fluid and NOT interchangable. Don't know your car but in most cases the "brake" light in the dash is a warning light to indicate you have a serious problem with your brakes. Suggest you get it fixed immediatly. Remember, your life depends on your brakes.
In most vehicles the brake lights and radio are two separate curcuits. Start with the brake lights being most important, check the brake light fuse, if it is not blown check for 12 volts at the fuse with a test light. If you have 12 volts at the fuse check the brake light bulbs. If the bulbs are good I would suspect the brake light switch is at fault. Also check the fuse that protects the radio. Not knowing what type of vehicle you have, most fuse block assemblies are located under the left side of dash.
Replace the brake light switch would probably be a start. check the wiring and tcm
