This just recently started happening. I was driving about 50mph when a car pulled out in front of me. I had to hit the brakes hard. When I did, the brake light on my dash lit up for a few seconds then went out. So far this has occured about 3 times, only on hard braking.
I was under the impression that the brake light indicator on the dash was only associated with the E-brake.
I keep my car well maintained. All fluid levels are normal. What could be causing this issue? My car still has the original 7yr warranty from when I purchased it in 2002, but runs out in a few months, so I wanna get this fixed soon if it is a defective part.
