Just about 2mo ago my ebrake light started staying on or comming on while driving, which I thought was due to the cable being a little looser now. About a month ago now it stays on all the time. I took the console off and messed with the switch and looked at the wiring but cant find a problem. It seems as though by the way it was wired that it would be off all the time if there was a problem with the switch and that the wire must be now grounded somewhere it isn’t supposed to be. I cant find anything loose though. Anyone else had this problem?
try cleaning up the ground wire connecting point. if that doesnt work it maybe the switch it-self.
Your breaks could be worn and need replacing, or possibly your brake fluid could be low.
i forgot about the fluid. mine light turned on when my fluid went low. try that. If your brakes are worn you would hear a metal on metal scratching sound.
Ironmark, you don’t always notice the warning tabs when the brakes get low
True… depends on how loud your music is! LOL!
I’d love to have an update on this when you figure out the problem for sure
I 've had a similar problem with my light ever since I changed the stock stereo for my Sony Xplod head unit. It seems to come and go even though I adjusted the parking brake cable and changed my worn front pads. (I still have drums out back.) I’ve been so used to driving with the light on that I recently saw that It went away after I released the parking brake. Before it would stay on regardless. I think it might be a wiring problem or something or a conflict with the stereo wiring. I really havn’t given it much thought since my brakes work just fine.
Just to clarify…since the e-brake only goes to the rears…changing your fronts isn’t going to effect the e-brake light. Probably something wrong with the connections.
My light has come on twice other than pulling the e-brake. I’ve had it come on when my front brakes were worn beyond their life. Probably one more stop on them and it would have been metal to metal. I didn’t hear the warning clip at all. Once I replaced my pads the light turned off.
Check the switch under the brake pedal to see wether the circuit is open or closed. You may need to make some adjustments. :ugeek:
