fluid level low
you ask it to stop
If your handbrake is on or if the brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder in your engine compartment is LOW , the " brake " light in your dash will light up
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.
ive put in brake fuild oil toped that up checked the battery level all ok still the battery light and hand brake light are still on...
I pull the hand brake 1 teeth which hopefully has no effect on engaging the worn brakes on rear drums of the car. Of course brake lights turns on on the dash panel. Hope that someone comes up with better answer.
Check that your hand brake is all the way down. If your hand brake switch is tripped, the brake lihgt should come on, and the automatic running lights won't.
I have a 1800 vectra and the break light comes on when traveling then goes off, is this the brake shoes or pads wearing out.
The red " BRAKE " light in your dash comes on if the parking brake / emergency brake is on and also if the BRAKE FLUID LEVEL in the brake master cylinder located in your engine compartment is LOW
No , the rear brake lights do not turn on when you use your parking brake , just the brake light on your dash is supposed to come on
the light would be your emergency brake light meaning either your hand brake is on or that your abs has been disabled.
The brake light switch is located beneath the dashboard. The switch is on the left-hand side of the drivers side.
This either means that your emergency brake (hand brake) is on, the light switch needs to be fixed, OR (most common) you need to add more brake fluid. Always check your brake fluid first!
You can remove the ABS and brake light, from your Oldsmobile Alero, by removing the dash cover. The light retaining nut must be removed. The light will come out.
the brake light fuse is located on the firewall under the dash beside the park brake second or third up on the left hand side
shoot it with a gun and brake it with an axe and remove it by your hand
look on top of the brake pedal under the dash and you will see the switch, with one hand push the brake pedal down and with the other hand push the brake switch in as far as it will go in it's holder and then pull the brake pedal back with your hand to set it.
The 1994 Toyota Camry emergency brake light switch can be found beneath the drivers side dashboard. The emergency brake light switch will be beneath the far left hand side of the dashboard.
that means your brake fluid is low
It is something to do with your ABS your brake pads may need to be replaced or your brake discs. drive carefully and no handbrake turns!
if it is a RED brake light on the dash that comes on when you mash the brake pedal , this is indicating a hydralic failure , uselly from low brake fluid caused by leaking master cylinder or calipers or wheel cylinders hope this helps J
The lever pulls at a wire which in turn pulls at an arm out by the hubs. This arm turns a cam or an axle that will activate the brake pads, either a separate pair for the handbrake, or the same ones used for the main brake.
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.
Lots of bizarre possibilities - but the one you should check out is: What if your hand brake cable is frozen, holding the hand breaks on? This will wear out your main breaks (or at least the rear ones) ... as well as lower your mileage.
The Abs computer has deteced a malfunction and set a code or the fuse for the abs computer has blown.
Hand brake? I thought the last GMC with a hand brake was in 68, but I could be wrong.
