Why is brake light on with normal fluid level and too much brake pad pressure on a 1997 Ford F-250 diesel?

The most likely answer is the Parking Brake is set.

Yes. Normal brake fluid is actually synthetic


Normal spinal fluid pressure is 12



No, and neither has anything to do with the engine type.


The red brake warning light is an indication of low fluid, a loss of pressure, or the parking brake being set.The red brake light stays on when the parking brake is set, the fluid is low, or there us a loss of pressure.



Brake calipers on cars use a fluid pressure system to stop.


The brake fluid level gradually goes down as the brake pads , brake shoes wear

To top off the brake fluid on the Renault Kangaroo diesel, you will need to open the brake fluid reservoir. This is located on the passenger side of the motor nearest the firewall. Open the reservoir and add fluid.


A car has to have brake fluid to allow for the effective operation of the brakes to stop the car. When we apply pressure to the brake pedal, brake fluid, which is largely incompressible, will transfer that pressure to the pistons that operate the in the calipers or the pistons that operate the brake shoes. Further, the fluid must be of the correct type for the system in which it is used. The continued safe operation of the brakes may be compromised by the wrong fluid.


The master cylinder is shot. The seals inside are allowing the fluid to by-pass.


The accumulator stores brake fluid under very high pressure. An electric pump keeps the accumulator pressurized with brake fluid. When you press the brake pedal, pressurized fluid from the accumulator operates the brakes.


If you have anything other than brake fluid in the line, then the whole system has to be flushed. Use fresh brake fluid and you can blow the system with air pressure then bleed with the d.o.t. specified fluid for your model.


A brake accumulator is a device that holds brake fluid at a very high pressure. It is an important part of a proper brake system.




That is a pressure controlled brake light switch, when you step on the brake pedal and develop pressure in the brake fluid the brake lights are switched on.


If you are driving and need to brake, but find your brake pedal is getting closer and closer to the floorboard, you need the check your fluid. Eventually your brakes will not have enough fluid to create the pressure needed to apply the brake pads properly and you risk accidents.


There are a lot of different things that could be wrong. But initially what it means is that your brakes are going out or are out You should start by checking your brake fluid if that is low it would cause you to loose pressure. If your brake fluid is low and you fill it things should get better if you don't have a hole in your brake line. If the fluid is full check your brake pads


its either,AActivate the secondary piston if primary pressure is lostB.Equalize pressure between the primary and secondary circuitsC.Allow for the normal expansion and contraction of brake fluid due to temperature changesD.Assist in the rapid return of the brake pedal when it is released


Four Possible reasons... Low brake fluid - check the brake fluid level in the master cylinder Emergency brake is on - check emergency brake Low brake fluid pressure - such as a broken brake line or a bad wheel cylinder. Check the master cylinder to see if it is empty. If you add fluid and pump the pedal you will probably see brake fluid on the ground or on the inside of the tires. Possibly a bad master cylinder. - The fluid will stay full but you will have no or little brake pressure. Could be air in the system as well. BE CAREFUL If you happen to add power steering fluid or transmission fluid to the master cylinder instead of brake fluid you will destroy the system. Make sure you use ONLY brake fluid and clean the master cylinder cap off with a clean rag first so no dirt gets into the braking system.

unles you can full it while you are holding the brake pedal down... it will never be full, because when you do it the fluid goes in to the line to apply the pressure on the brake cilinders
