Brake fluid level? Bulbs not working?

Which brake lamp, the red one or the yuellow ABS? If it's the red one, try pulling up on your parking brake while holding the release handle.

I hope you guys don't mind, but I have a question on these same CEL's so I figured I'd just add to this thread... I recently bought a '04 ram 1500 4by with a hemi. It was fine until this morning. I was driving for a few minutes ( less then five ) and both the red brake and yellow ABS light came on and stayed on. The brakes work fine, but every so many minutes the lights blink and ding. This has happened every time I got in and drove today, same deal.. drive for a couple min. then lights come on.... The only thing I can say I noticed before the lights came on, was that the brakes started a lite squeal like brake dust or wear pins... Would low break pads cause the lights??? Thanks for your input....

to (GOSSEMER75) yes if your pads or shoes are wearing thin then your brake fluid is also getting low as well. rotors are not cheap replace your pads and or shoes ASAP. bleed them good I always do it twice per wheel remember if you replace the rear shoes bleed the right side first it is then the left rear then front right and front drivers side last and be carefull with them bleeder screws very easy to brake and Good Luck your Dodge sounds like a sweet rig

If the amber ABS light is on, you need to have the module scanned for codes.
