The abs light is a separate system from the brakes.. I know that sounds funny but the abs system is after the break system. Your brakes will still work if the abs is inop. The brake light is usually a fluid level indicator in the master cylinder, not a light to tell you to replace the pads or shoes. I would look for a fluid leak or a problem with the parking brake.

You have a 1990 toy Camry le when you step on the brakes the light light on dash comes on but you already replaced the bad build and all the light r workingwhats wrong?

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.


When you press the brakes a light comes on why?

If you mean the " BRAKE " light in your dash , that means your brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder is LOW . The brake master cylinder is located in the engine compartment on the drivers side


Is power steering fluid different to brake fluid and also on your dash when i start car the brake light lights up what does this mean?

Power steering fluid is completely different from brake fluid and NOT interchangable. Don't know your car but in most cases the "brake" light in the dash is a warning light to indicate you have a serious problem with your brakes. Suggest you get it fixed immediatly. Remember, your life depends on your brakes.


Why would the abs light come on a 2000 Ford Taurus?

A problem has been detected with the Antilock Brake System It could be a fuse , a sensor , or some other problem As long as the red " BRAKE " light in your dash is not on , you still have " normal " brakes


What would cause the brake light to stay on unless the fuse is removed?

most probably because the brake light switch is stuck in the "on' position. The switch is most probably right under the dash on the drivers side connected to the brakes swing arm pedal.when you step on the brake,the arm moves and set the brake light on.

Why would my 97 mercury villager brake lights not work but dash and tail light come on when braking?

I would check the rear bulbs. I just had this issue and it ended up my brother had used the wrong bulb, and odd enough it caused the brake lights to stay on with headlights. When headlights were not on and you applied the brakes the dash would light and brake lights worked. Strange, HUH? I must admit before this revelation, I replaced headlight switch and brake switch, with no avail.
