BRAKE LIGHT: The red brake light on your dashboard can come on for three reasons. First, it will come on when the parking or emergency brake is engaged. Second, it can become activated if the brake fluid in the reservoir has dropped below a safe level, which is a sign your brake pads are worn. Third, you can expect to see a brake light on the dash when there is a leak in your braking system. A brake light needs to be addressed immediately because it is a sign your brakes have failed or will fail soon.
