It means that your parking brake is on. :-) Or there is a problem with the brake system, as in low brake fluid.
Check the brake fluid reservoir. If it is low, the light will come on notifying you that the brakes need to be serviced.
The red brake light indicates that the parking brake is on or that the brake fluid is low. Be sure to add the specified brake fluid if you add fluid. Also make sure that you don't allow any dirt to get into the brake fluid and don't overfill the brake fluid either.
If it only flickers it may be due to low fluid level in the master cylinder. Check your brake fluid reservoir.
somtimes float sticks down in brake master
A dashboard light appearing when brake pedal is depressed usually means brake fluid is low.
One thing you might want to check is the brake fluid. Your brake fluid reservoir has a sensor in it that lets you know when it is getting empty. By driving up hill it may be sensing that it is low so just check the level of the brake fluid. Be sure you do not overfill and follow directions in your owners manual for checking and filling brake fluid.
brake light swith located under the brake pedal is stuck.
Depends on the make of car, but most likely you are low on brake fluid. Check it before driving.
Yes , the " BRAKE " light in your dash will come on if the brake fluid is low or your emergency / parking brake is engaged
it means one or more of the following, the brake fluid is low, the parking brake lever is either up or the circuit for the paking brake switch is shorted, or if the battery light is also on, the car needs a new alternator.
NEED BRAKE INSPECTION POSSIBLY NEW BRAKE PADS, Check brake fluid imediately. had a similar problem on a 1990 camry. brake fluid level was slightly low. when temperature outside would drop, applying brakes would lower level and brake light would come on. possibly caused by a small leak in brake line. filling brake fluid would fix, but would reappear a couple of months later. Have brake lines checked for leak.
When you say the "light on dash" I am assuming your brake warning light. This can be a number of things, not your brake lights. A quick easy check is your fluid level in your master cylinder. A low fluid level will the light come on. When you press your brakes, the fluid level will drop (fluid travelling to the four brakes), when you release the brake fluid is drawn back into the master cylinder. I would check that first.
You have a bad ground on that brake light bulb.
ADD BRAKE FLUID
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.
I would check switches for faulty sensor on emergency brake...GOOD LUCK
Light is usually comes on, when there is a problem with pressure in brake lines. Inspect the brake fluid level, and check for leaks.
The 1993 Toyota Camry backup light fuse is part of the brake light relay switch. The brake light relay switch can be found beneath the drivers side dashboard.
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.
This light is trying to tell you that your brake fluid may be low. Check your brake fluid and fill if it needs it.
Make sure brake fluid level in master cylinder is correct Make sure parking brake is fully released Make sure switch on parking brake handle is adjusted properly
Check your brake fluid. The light will come on due to low fluid. Or someone has yanked your E-Brake.
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.
Add brake fluid
