Brake Warning Light
Hey all! Yes, I've done a few searches on this but just wanted to see if there was any further input.
My brake warning light has been popping on/off for a while now. Sometimes it stays on after start up then goes off only to come back on, other times its off then comes on and stays on for a while then just randomly goes off. I've searched other posts and most say that it is either due to low brake fluid or a stuck e-brake pedal. I've tried pulling the e-brake up but to no avail. I've checked the fluid and it's fine. I sprayed some contact cleaner on the sensor plug at the master cylinder but it still comes and goes. Here's the wild thing...once in a while, when it comes on I will tap the area above the e-brake release or slam the door and it will sometimes (not all the time) go off.
I'm just wondering if this is the sign of a short somewhere or is there really something going on with the brakes? I haven't had a chance to pull the wheels off to see how much meat is left on the pads but they feel fine. Until I figure this out, thinking of just putting some electric tape over the light because it is annoying as hell!!
Any input would be greatly appreciated. BTW - It's a 2005 SCREW
