Default Why is the brake light in my Acura lit??

I pumped the brakes, I've checked the emergency brake. Light Still on!!!! My brake light will Not go out. It is a 1998 Acura. What should I do????It is the light on the dash inside the car.

the brake light switch under the dash is stuck, buy a new one and replace it very simple and costs about $15.

It depends on which light it is. If its on the dash your brake fluid is low or there is something wrong with the brake system, and you need to have your brakes serviced. Brake fluid doesnt just evaporate. If its the lights on the back, then its the sensor.

the brake master cylinder may be low on brake fluid and the sensor is telling you this make sure you use brake fluid approved for your car type of fluid required is usually listed in owners manual (note should have brakes checked to make sure not in need of brake job as low fluid is a normal sign of pad- shoe wear fluid goes down as wear occurs

you probably have '''brake wear sensors'' at the brake pads are indicating that you need new parts on your ride to have the correct stopping power .... go to the ''''brake store'''' and get it checked NOW ...... remember that good brakes are cheap insurance for quick stops and to avoid an accident ----------

the light is on because your brake pads are low so your fluid is low. as the pads wear out, the piston pushes further out. you need more fluid to take up that space. You need new brake pads. when they push the piston back in, the fluid will go back up into the brake resevoir.
