If the light stays on when the emergency brake is not engaged, this indicates the brakes are getting low and need to be replaced.

The emergency brake release on a 2010 Chevy Malibu is located beside your left foot. You would push down on the emergency brake pedal to release it while having your right foot on the regular brake.

Brake light switch defective or out of adjustment.

The brake light in the dash would be on because the emergency brake is on. If you mean the brake lights in the back, this would be because you are pressing the brake peddle or something is broken.

no the bar light on your instrument panel that is located on the trunk of the car diagram would light.

You have air in your brake lines. Have the brakes bled.

Check if emergency brake is fully disengaged.

the light would be your emergency brake light meaning either your hand brake is on or that your abs has been disabled.

first check your brake fluid it may be low then check the switch at the emergency brake lever it may be stuck

It is important to know what the meanings of the emergency lights on a ca. A brake light would stay on in a car because the brake system needed to be fixed, and the light needed to be reset.

if you want to adjust the emergency brake tension on a 1985 chevy scottsdale 10, you would have to get under the truck and take a look at your brakes. it may be that you would have to also look under the hood or ask a mechanic frien for assistance.

First I would have the rear rotors removed to inspect the emergency brake shoe's and rotor for wear. Sometimes people are known to drive with the emergency brake engaged which will wear the shoe and rotor. If they are still within specs, there is an adjustment on the shoe's

Has to be in park with the emergency brake on, or maybe they would turn off if you just tripped the switch on the emergency brake without actually engaging it. That way it wouldn't have to be in park.

check that the emergency brake pedal is completely up.If ok disconnect the electric cable from the emergency brake pedal. i think is brown in color if light turns off the problem is there.

When my 2003 suburban did it. It turned out to be bearings. After replacing the bearings, no problems since. The bearing assembly has abs sensor attached.

If your brake light is on that inducates that your brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder in your engine compartment is LOW ( assuming that your emergency brake isn't on ) Having a low brake fluid level will also turn on your ABS light

It is possible that a wheel speed sensor is bad. This will cause the anti lock braking to not read the wheel correctly which would be a brake problem that would cause a light.

User Avatar

there was a recall on the brake light switch you might want to check into that

One possible reason is that the brake linings are worn to the point that they need to be replaced. This is meant to be an early indicator of brake wear.

Easiest would be to disconnect the wire at the emergency brake handle.
