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.

2001 Honda prelude se when i start it in the morning the emergency brake light comes on for about 15 min then goes off and doesnt come on again until the next morning when i start it cold again?

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

When should the brake warning light illuminate on a 1982 ford f150?

Dodge Durango rear lights on always?

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,

Is power steering fluid different to brake fluid and also on your dash when i start car the brake light lights up what does this mean?

Power steering fluid is completely different from brake fluid and NOT interchangable.

Remember, your life depends on your brakes.

No brake lights and radio?

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.
