Re: break light!!!!!

ya any brand will work just make sure it is the right type of fluid, a haynes manual or your owners manual should specify the type, like DOT 3 or 5 probably.

Too funny.

The brakes need a break, so the break light illuminated.


I just had to joke about it.

Anyway- I would say check the fluid it could be a number of things. A good OBD scanner can also read ABS codes.

When it's freezing or below out when leaving work mine comes on the first 3 times I hit the brake, but not the 4th time at at the light before getting on the belt line.
Confused

Re: break light!!!!!

lol i had NO idea what you were trying to say haha

on the lid of the brake resivoir is a rubber casket, make sure it is pushed in not bubbled out. also check for brake fluid leaks. if you are low, you need to find the reason you are low.

wonder if maybe you have water in your lines or something? brake fluid is hydroscopic meaning it loves to suck up water and water isn't compressable. when was the last time you flushed your brake system?

Sounds to me like something isn't in agreement with a sensor if that makes sense. In other words: Something is colder touching something that is slightly warmer. Which is probably causing that to happen.

^yes that might help. Could be that there is a bit of water freezing in the line. Cobrarunnin9s is on top of his brakes.

Never. I just purchased it last aug. it's a 95 GT had 79k miles when I got it, 90k now.
That's interesting though, drive it really hard today for about 30 miles. Off and on the brakes hard with zero issues.

I leave work at 1:30am. But it only stays on for a second or two after I let off the brake.

Yeah it's probably time to flush it. Every 20,000 miles.

As brake pads wear, the fluid level in the resevoir drops. Most likely why your light
Turned on. Check your brakes or have them checked by your garage of choice.

but going back to the issue, The most possible description is basically that you need to add braking system fluidCustomer The liquid stage is administered by a move in the liquid tank and will near a move that lights up the RED braking system notify table lamp in the splash once it gets to a certain stage. try checking out the brake fluid. here's a video on Video: How to Check Brake Fluid Levels | eHow.com and a steps by steps instruction here, how to check the brake fluid level
