Default Brake Light

OK... It is really slick because of ice and snow around here, and last night. I was trying to stop and an intersection, and my brake light came on and the dinger started dinging. I still hav brakes, and the brake fluid is full. What could be wrong with it?

the break light is telling you that your break fluid is low. I just had the same problem as you. I have a 93 and my master cylinder started to leak. this is an eaxy fix that only took me about an hour to do. For the money, about $55 (NAPA) you can drop in a new master cylinder it is an easy fix



must be the white curse
