How do fix my Hyundai Accent's brake warning light, which is on?


Answer by  bug57 (1048)

If it's the light that says "BRAKE", it means you have a taillight out. If it's the light that says "ABS", then you will need to take the car to a qualified professional. ABS systems are charged with high pressure nitrogen gas and cannot be serviced without using specialized equipment.

Determine why the warning light is illuminated. First, make sure the parking brake is off and the brake fluid reservoir is full. If okay, you most likely have an anti-lock braking system problem. Use a code reader to download the trouble codes to isolate the defective components.

Some of the hyundais have a system the tells you when a rear brake light is out. Check the bulbs, also check brake fluid level.


Answer by  Jennytaurus (144)

The brake light goes on because the car is low on brake fluid. You might have a leak or you might need to replace your brakes. Usually you are leaking fluid. You will have to find where it is leaking from and replace the leaking part. You will then have to bleed the system.

Is this light also used to tell you that your hand or emergency brake is on? Make sure that they are fully released before you take off. Have you checked your brake fluid? Does this light also warn when brake fluid is low? Then, you might want to ask a mechanic.

Check the brake fluid to be sure it is at the correct level. Add some if necessary. If this doesn't solve it, make sure the parking brake is completely off.

First of all check that if your car's brake fluid is full or low. If it is full then check it bulbs & wires.
