Is it the brake warning light? Like if the parking brake is set?

Mechanic for Honda: Honda-Man, Honda Mechanic replied 4 months ago

The warning light can stay on if the fluid level is low or the level sensor plug is disconnected. The brake warning light is for the parking brake and fluid level. If the level is OK and the plug is OK the level sensor is bad. The main thing is the brakes work normally. If the pedal is soft and it won't stop well it needs to be checked out at once.

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA
