Hand Break Light On Dash Board


Recommended Posts

When starting the car with my hand brake on the light comes upon the dash board, when i take my handbrake off the light goes off

But as soon as i touch the brake the light comes back on the hand brake is off.

Anyone know what is wrong

i dont know if this is connected but last night my rear tail light was out so took it out last night (the handbrake problem was not happening at this point) and this morning just started the car and it has this problem.

I have replaced the bulb this morning and its not fixed it

cheers

prop the bulb in the back then - take it out again and make sure the filament wires are parallel to each other. put a brick on the brake pedal to see which light is not working

and as it takes just a min to do have a look at the fluid level anyway

will try that at dinner

I had the same problem and thought that i needed new pads, but it turned out to be that i needed a new bulb for my 3rd brake light.

Check you brake lights!
