Bake Light

Alright so my brake light comes on randomly when either accelerating hard or braking hard. If any of you recall the brakes have been thoroughly bled recently. The fluid isn't low. The car brakes perfectly fine so that isn't worrying me, its just the light thats got me confused. Any ideas?

+1 on the switch. Must be a sensor. They're usually not too much anyways

I had the same thing happen to me but it was because my pads were extremely low and too much brake fluid would be compressing caliper pistons. Although my master cylinder was at the correct level of brake fluid. I did breaks and rotors and it went away. To explain it under hard acceleration I was suggested my break fluid could be low just enough that when I accelerate hard it would cause it the fluid to splash around in my master cylinder causing the brake light to temporally to come on. Check your pad levels, bleed your brakes.

Pads have only a few hundred miles on them. And fluid level is good.

Prolly the level sensor inside the brake master cylinder res, if ur abs lights come on to tho then it could be the abs/brake control module ( if no abs lamp then i would not even worry about the module) i may be wrong but i think u can unplug ur level sensor and the lamp will stay off which might confirm the level sensor but again i may be wrong but i think thats what i did on my gf 97 cuz her level sensor float had a hole in it somehow and would not float up and the light was annoying untill i had time to fix it, also thats another thing, is ur level sensor float rising to the surface?

the braking and acceleration sounds like the sensor to me. mine was like that when i bought it. added some fluid up to the neck and never happened again. but if yours is filled all the way to the point that movement of the fluid wouldnt change the elevation of the sensor, my guess would be a faulty sensor or plug/wire. a friend of mine said it could be the plug in the e-brake handle, when we were working with a camry.

The whole ABS system has less than 2 years on it so I'm sure it's not that. Probably is the sensor.

Yea but theres always the possibility thats why i mentioned it but if the abs lamp isnt coming on with it then thats not it, and yes it could also be the sensor in the ebrake handle as well but thats usually rare ive never had to replace one... Make sure ur float in the res is indeed floating lol
