Hi, my name is Jay

Disconnect the brake fluid reservoir switch and using a paper clip jump the two colored wires together in connector and see if the light on dash goes out?

Let me know if it goes out or stays on? Make sure park brake pedal is all the way up also.

If jumping wires at master cylinder connector turns off light then replace reservoir and sensor.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
