Each time you press the brake pedal of your car to slow down or stop, the force transfers to the brake pads and wheel hubs by way of the brake fluid. Insufficient levels of brake fluid can hinder this mechanism and this is why car manufacturers install the brake fluid level sensor in the car. As soon as the brake fluid in the car drops below a certain level, the brake fluid level sensor alerts you by way of an indicator light on the dashboard so you can have it replaced. An important component of this sensor is a reed switch secured in an airtight compartment.
If you suspect that the brake fluid level sensor of your car is not functioning as it should, book an appointment with one of our expert mechanics and have it checked right away. A malfunctioning braking system could be a safety hazard. Delaying replacement of the brake fluid level sensor switch could result in increased damage to other components of the braking system.
A working brake fluid level sensor is essential in alerting you when the brake fluid needs replacing. Without it, your braking mechanism could fail on an incline or in busy traffic areas leading to serious safety issues.
