Asked by Aug 19, 2016 at 10:21 AM about the 2012 Toyota Tundra SR5 CrewMax 4.6L

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We have checked the parking brake, tapped the brake peddle, and the light remains on. We can't find the owner's manual right now so I need an answer from you please.

check the brake fluid reservoir, if it is below MAX, the sensor will indicate a low fluid level, tripping the light.
