Brake warning light

When braking from highway speed the light comes on in the dashboard but I have problems...pressure seems good and stops. Any ideas?

The red brake light, not the yellow ABS light, correct?

The first thing to check is the brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder.

Keep in mind, a low brake fluid level is most often caused by worn out brake pads. So if the fluid level is indeed low, do some further investigation into the reason for the low fluid level BEFORE you fill up the master cylinder!

Yeah It's most likely brake fluid being low. Mine did this a couple years ago after doing brakes. It wasn't quite full. Filled it up with about a 1/4 bottle and it has never come back on again and my level has stayed the same Also.
