Why would a 1995 Lexus ES300 red brake light indicator on dash go on and off randomly?

On some cars low brake fluid can cause it to come on. GoodluckJoe

If your brakes are very worn, it will take much more fluid to depress the calipers. This will significantly lower the amount of brake fluid in the reservoir which will trigger the brake light to illuminate. This happened to me and when I put on new calipers the light didn't come on again.

I had the same problem on my 1993 ES. All the rear light bulbs worked, but one was dim and the resistance was higher than the others. I replaced that bulb and that took care of the problem. No more dash light warning.

The fuel filter for a 2000 Lexus ES300 is in the engine compartment on the driver's side right by the firewall under the master cylinder (the container for the brake fluid).
