Re: e-brake light turns on while accelerating

ive seem them come on when people get on the car or slam on the brakes due to low brake fluid.

Re: e-brake light turns on while accelerating

low brake fluid could cause the red 'brake' light to come on when moving around.. replace your pads recently? if not your pads could be low, causing a level to be low enough to trip the light when you move..

could also be a weak/loose switch on the ebrake that contacts when you're in motion..

This is just a guess! Tune the key to on position have someone slap the e-brake cable under the car, see if light comes on, if it does I would say you have to much slack in the cable.

If you have a 94 or newer the hand brake is self-adjusting ! What year car do you have? How are you adjusting cable?
