Default The brake light coming on during cold weather on a 2000 Honda CRV?

The brake light will turn on or be on when I leave for work in the morning in weather that is 60 degrees or below(I'm in S. Texas so it is rarely cold). After I drive it for about 10 minutes or so, it comes off and stays off. Do I need brake fluid or what?

This exact same thing happened to my Honda Prelude.. I took it in and according to what I was told by the repair shop was that those sensors are extremely sensitive to the cold weather. I just checked the fluid and forgot about it... I think you will be safe in doing the same thing.

A few possibilities:1.Sticky float switch in the master cylinder.2.Borderline fluid level in master cylinder (not likely,but possible)3.Sticky brake light switch;located above brake pedal.BTW:If the brake fluid itself has not been replaced in tha last 3-5 yrs; (complete system flush) this is a good time to consider doing so. New fluid is clear with a slight gold tint. Old fluid will appear dark & dirty.
