What does the brake Warning Light mean?
The brake system Warning Light is located on your instrument panel, and can come on for three reasons:
The parking brake is engaged.
The brake fluid is low.
The brake system is malfunctioning.
If the illuminated light is accompanied by a buzzer, then the issue is the parking brake. Release the parking brake, and the light should disappear. If the light is not accompanied by a buzzer, you should have your vehicle serviced as soon as possible.
Like all warning lights, the brake Warning Light briefly illuminates when you turn the car on. The light is only a problem if it stays lit when the engine is turned on.
