Red dash brake light

Asked by May 16, 2017 at 12:36 AM about the 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I all of a sudden get a red brake light on
the dash while driving. Will only trigger
when the cruise on or when I reverse. I
have removed the batt and checked the
IPM ground to batt. No rubbed worse,
brake fluid is topped up. Brakes work fine
no leaks just light cones on with the cruise!
Need some help

Did you try pulling any codes? Also on late model vehicles removing the battery without installing the preset saver tool can led to BCM programming error, if that happens your in for a hundred dollar reflash bill from the dealer. Check the wiring from the brake fluid level sensor it is possible you may have an intermittent grounding issue.

Yeah pulled codes with an ABS reader nothing came up. Looked at the wiring from the resevior low level switch to the IPM found no chaffing or damage. Had that batt in for 2 years nothing changed on the van at all when this light started coming on with the cruise. Going to start checking grounds next. Someone must have had this issue before!
