Default Brake Light

Would the Red Brake light in the dash go off if you had to bleed the brakes. Or is the only reason that light goes off is because it things the E-brake is up. Sorry in advance for the dumb question but my light is on and I dont thinks its the E-brake so I am hoping its because I still need to bleed the brakes from the brake i am doing.

Check your brake fluid level. If it's low, don't top it off, just check your pads, chances are they're so worn down that the BF level is too low in the reservoir. Change your pads if this is the case and when you push the pistons back into the calipers your fluid level will rise and the light will turn itself off.

Okay that is great news. I am pretty sure the light is on now because of the fluid being low. I am going to install my SS brake lines tomorrow and bleed the brakes with new fluid.
