SOURCE: brake and ABS warning lights on, trac off on.

You may have a bad abs controller. You need to get the code for the abs light from a shop or auto parts store.

SOURCE: 2000 daewoo won't shift from park and no brake lights

Sounds like the park/brake shift interlock switch is bad.

Or

"An actuator solenoid and module assembly, located on the lower portion of the steering column, locks the shifter in Park whenever it receives a signal that the ignition switch is in the ON position. When the module receives a signal from the Brake On-Off (BOO) switch that indicates the brake pedal is depressed, it unlocks the shifter so that it can be shifted out of Park."

It says the most common failures in the system are the fuse and the BOO switch, and if they are fine, special tools are needed to diagnose.

To disable the system: Apply the parking brake, turn the ignition key to LOCK, then remove the key. Insert the key and turn it to OFF. Press the brake pedal. Shift to neutral, start the vehicle and select the desired gear.

SOURCE: 2000 VW Jetta E-Brake Light indicator beeps when brake is off

I fixed mine!! First check your ebrake switch by starting your vw and putting the ebrake on. If your daytime running lights stay on when the ebrake is engaged, its NOT the switch. Stay with me here. Turn vw off and pull fuse number 5. Mine was blown, but the legend only shows a pic of a book with an exclamation point. Meaning the book will tell you what it is, BUT IT DOESN'T . I replaced the 7.5 amp fuse and voila, victory. If it is not number 5, pull every fuse one at a time and inspect them closely. Do not assume, check each one. That is how I found mine after I bought and replaced the $10 switch. Running lights stay on because the switch is not being acknowledged, not because it is bad. I searched every forum I could find on this and there were no answers to this problem anywhere. So I am posting so there is an answer out there. What put me on the right track was the running lights staying on when the ebrake was engaged after I put in the new switch.

How do i fix brake lights on dashbord


You can "fix" the brake light problem by taking your vehicle to a competent mechanic for diagnosis and repair.

Have a 99 Toyota camry n brake light is on after changing right front brake caliper


Master cylinder fluid piston has entered into a brake safe mode.
when the high pressure brake system is opened in any way, the brake master cylinder piston reaches to the far end of the master cylinder which trips the brake system warning light.

This brake light condition is due to sudden loss of brake fluid pressure on the right front brake caliper assembly during the replacement.

Left rear brake caliper bleed valve will ned to be "opened" until master cylinder piston travels into the opposite direction which "resets" the brake system warning light.

Dot 4 brake fluid recommened for most, but not all vehicles.
Reference vehicle to owners manual for replacement fluid is replaced under master cylinder brake system cap.

Brakelights stay on


Are you talking about the brake lights in the back, or the brake warning light on the dash ?
If the warning light is on, have you checked the fluid level in the master cylinder ? Is the parking brake on ?

There is a light on my dash it is a ! with a bunch of lines all around it. what is that light for?


According to the 2003 Ford TaurusOwners Manual:

"Brake system warning light: To confirm the brake system warning light is functional, it will
momentarily illuminate when the ignition is turned to the ON position when the engine is not running, or in a position between ON and START,
or by applying the parking brake when the ignition is turned to the ON position. If the brake system warning light does not illuminate at this
time, seek service immediately from your dealership. Illumination after releasing the parking brake indicates low brake fluid level and the brake
system should be inspected immediately by your servicing dealership."

In short, as your brake linings (pads and shoes) wear out, the brake fluid level in the reservoir goes down.

You're probably right at the point where the level gets low enough to turn on the warning only under specific circumstances (cornering? hard braking?).

You can top off the fluid for the short term, but you should have your brakes inspected fairly soon.

Brake lamp light


Most new cars nowadays have Wiring-Check systems, which are themselves a bunch of extra wiring to make sure the wiring to, in this case, your brake lights works. Its somewhat rare, but does happen, the wiring on the Brake Light Function Check system probably has a bad ground, explaining the internittent illumination of the warning light.

Unfortunately repairing it would have to be done by a more than competent and qualified Acura technician, which may be hard to find because a wiring fault of this kind is generally a very hard one to find. Unfortunately some dealerships will probably take the car in, look it over, figure out whats wrong and decide "I'm not doin that" and tell you they can't figure it out.

When this happens, most people just put a piece of electrical tape over the Warning light in the dash so that you can't see it anymore. Because if the Warning Light is on, but the brake lights still work, then there is nothing actually wrong with the brake light system.
