Another Brake light issue
Hey guys (gals), I've read through all the posts concerning the brake indicator illuminating along with the chime, but I haven't found a similar situation as to what I'm encountering.......
This is on a 1999 Series II * --> the brakes were grinding so upon inspection I noticed the passenger'* side, outboard rotor surface had a very deep groove. The driver'* side was quite smooth w/ plenty of pad left. Assuming there was a piston issue on one of the two sides, I opted to replace both rotors, calipers, and pads. I never let the master cylinder reservoir empty as I was changing out the calipers, and I let quite a bit of fluid flow from the bleed valves of the new calipers. After topping off the reservoir, I started the car and noticed the red brake light on and the chime started to ring. I had adjusted the rear brakes as well, so I unplugged the reservoir sensor to make sure it wasn't an actual e-brake issue (too tight or e-brake pedal problem). Disconnecting the fluid level sensor for sure silences the alarm. I pulled the sensor out from under the reservoir as well, and even plugged in and removed, the light is off too, so it'* definitely as if the reservoir float (or whatever is inside the reservoir) is not activating the sensor.
Is there a way to dismantle the whole of the reservoir for cleaning and checking the inside sensor assembly, or is this an indicator of something different? Again, I allowed quite a bit of fluid to escape from both bleed valves, so I think they may be sufficiently bled, unless it is necessary to apply the brakes while bleeding, then holding the pedal while tightening the valve for a few pedal cycles......
Thanks for any input.
