Brake light

Asked by Feb 13, 2015 at 02:29 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Here's what happens. Brake light comes on, lately after driving a minute or two. Within 10 seconds the "VDC Off" light and "Slip" dummy lights come on. These stay on until the car is restarted, however, the brake light usually goes off, but sometimes stays on. Any ideas? Or is this require taking car to dealer?

Check the fluid level in your brake reservoir. Some cars are very touchy one the fluid level. Top it off to the FULL line. See if that cures it. Also remove your front tire and inspect your pads. If too thin, that may trip the lights also. Post back with results.

Forgot to mention, check to see if your brake lights are on when you hit the brakes. If not, you will have to replace the brake switch.
