could be a problem with the sesor in the emergency brake. a bad connection there could cause the light to blink with the vibration of the car running On some cars, the brake warning light will blink if the parking brake is set, and you drive... it could be a failed parking brake switch, assuming the brake is not applied. It is supposed to blink to get your attention. One car that does this is the Mitsubishi Starion, there are probably some others, too.

There are many reasons why the brake light will blink on a car. One such reason is if it is time for the brake system to be serviced. Another reason for the blinking brake light could be low brake fluid.

Worn brake pads can cause the brake light to blink on the dash in a 1993 GMC Sierra 1500. This can also be caused by a faulty light.

There probably is only one cause for your interior lights to go on when you apply the brakes. There probably are brake light wires and interior wires that have warned together.

you have to pull the feed wire off the brake switch to supply power to the new third brake light. get a test light and test the wires on the brake switch....one is hot all the time the other one gets hot when you depress the pedal....that is the one you need. do not take it pull your power from the rear light it might have an intergrated turn signal wire. which would make your 3rd brake light blink.. ok.have fun! you have to pull the feed wire off the brake switch to supply power to the new third brake light. get a test light and test the wires on the brake switch....one is hot all the time the other one gets hot when you depress the pedal....that is the one you need. do not take it pull your power from the rear light it might have an intergrated turn signal wire. which would make your 3rd brake light blink.. ok.have fun!

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.

Warning light? Check fluid level in master cylinder Make sure parking brake is fully released 2004 mit. outlander

Check you brake fluid and the brake switch on the proportioning value. If the fluid level is ok then disconnect the switch to see if the light goes out. Also check the parking brake switch.

You have to remove the interior trim of the lift gate.

no it will not, because they're not connected with the same switch

most likely the rear brake light bulb has a broken wire which is shorting the circuit. change the bulb and it's fixed.

why does my airbag light blink off and on on my 92 mercury gran marquis ls

The flasher unit for the indicators. Pressing and releasing the foot brake for the brake lights. Turning the light switch on and of for the others. If it is not any of these then there is an electrical fault, possibly a loose connection.

The most likely reason is you are low on brake fluid, although you may need to replace the brake pads or shoes, or there could be a problem with the anti-skid diverter system. First check and refill the brak fluid if it is low.

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.

Remove brake light interior trim panels. Then you push and twist the socket for the brake light that needs replacing. Then pull out socket. then pull out bulb from socket and place new bulb in the light socket. Once bulb is installed into light socket. Place the socket where you removed it from brake light housing. Push and twist clockwise to lock back in place. Then replace trim panels.

The brake light in the dash comes on if the parking brake is engaged or the brake fluid level is low in the brake master cylinder in the engine compartment

Brake light switches are above the brake pedal
