    when i drive from 1st gear i notice that it stays on while i am on the Gas as soon as i let off it turns off but when i get in 2nd and hit the gas is comes back on like WTF.. so i figured that it's just the car telling me to get New Brake Pads but i want to ask if anybody has a input on this, Cause i do believe is almost about that time.
    I had the same issue. My friend kept telling me to check the brake fluid. I did n it looked ok. But it wasent, it was just under the max line. I added some more brake fluid to fill it up n solved the dilemma. It comes on because everytime u step in it the brake fluid moves back n the censor reads as if theres no fluid in there. Try to fill up the brake fluid to see if that works.
    it could be your pads are too low, but you should notice the squeaking notification as well. it could also be that your brake fluid is low.
    The solution is no put brake fluid.

    That means ur brake pads are already very very worn, which make s ur brake fluid lower and that's when the light comes on.. change ur brake pads and issue will be solved. Also it has nothing to do with ur ebrake.

    that is the NOT the correct thing to do.

    the brake fluid system is completely closed, and over time, you should never, EVER have to add any brake fluid unless you're bleeding the lines and taking out fluid, or if there is a leak.

    so why then, did the brake fluid level drop?

    simple, the brake pads are worn down. check and replace them. DO NOT ADD BRAKE FLUID. doing so, when you replace your pads, you will need to make the extra effort of removing all that fluid you added in the first place when you shouldn't have.

    i lost count how many times i've posted on this forum about this, and seriously disappointed that you guys decide to disrespect the members here by not first utilizing the search, and having me repeat myself.

    i'm just that nice enough to again respond and tell you what the answer is, and forgive you for being a noob and not knowing. (despite the fact you've been on this forum since 2008?!? SERIOUSLY?!) however, for future reference, please, PLEASE, take two seconds and seach for your answer before you take a few more seconds to post up a new topic and asking a question that has been answered hundreds of times before

    Im Going to replace my pads soon i just didnt really see anything on it i thought i ask about it. So basically this light is telling me the pads are worn down?
    Searched this "brake light on when accelerating"
    Found this.

    Answer is there, read it and follow it.
    yup.
    had the issue as well lol changed pads and i never saw it blink on again
    Some service shop added some brake fluid into my car, I can't recall when, I've never added any fluid.

    As soon as I put new pads on the car, I actually had to remove the excess fluid.

    Just change the pads and you'll be fine.
