Emergency Brake Light

Hey, I have an 03 Evolution and lately my "brake" light on my dash has been lighting up when i am driving. I can drive for a little bit longer and it will turn off. Then in another couple of blocks the sucker turns on again. I had a new clutch put in a couple of months ago and i was wondering if maybe the guy who installed it missed a wire, or maybe its just a loose cable. Either way, its annoying and i would appreciate any help. Thanks.

As far as I know the brake light comes on for few reasons but in most cases it is brake fluid level is low. Another reason is the emergancy brake lever, there should be some sort of switch somewhere there that turns the light on when you apply emergency brake. Another reason would be if the sensor is plug in on the master-cylinder, or maybe it broke or something shorted out. But to be safe the first thing you check is for brake fluid level. If your low and run out, you will lose your brakes. Good luck

I’m agree with Brembo, you check your brake fluid level, break lever switch and sensor. But first you check brake fluid level. It’s important.

check fluid but i doubt thats it. maybe your ee-brake needs to be tightened. you need to remove the center console to access the nut to adjust and also the sensor is right there too.
