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.
your park brakes are on
As long as the red " BRAKE " light is not on in your dash you still have " normal " brakes even with the ABS light on
check fluid level
I have a 1994 Lexus ES300 and when my brake light came on, it meant that one of my brakes lines had busted. Eventually I had NO brakes. Not sure if this would apply to yours. Get it checked out before it is to late.
you have air in your brakes bleed them
it means either your emergency brake is on or your low on brake fluid
You need to get your brakes checked
Light on dash? Check fluid level in master cylinder
have you checked your brake fluid??
adgust the brake light switch at the brake pedel under the dash
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.
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
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.
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
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.
no , there is a problem
The brake light in the dash comes on if the parking brake is engaged or the brake fluid level is low in the brake master cylinder in the engine compartment

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.

brake light comes on on the dash
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.
