Dash lights come on whiel turning left. It seems when I take a left hand turn my hand break light comes on on my dash. I am aware that my hand brake is loose and I'll tighten that tomorow but the light comes on when I take a left turn and I'm wondering if its just a sensor or if its the line being caughbt/manipulated... any ideas?

I remember this coming up before, I'm pretty sure it was something with the switch on the brake lever.

Brake light coming on in left hand turns is usually the low fluid sensor. Don't put brake fluid in it, the reason it is low is because you need front brake pads. When you replace them, the fluid level will rise back up.

You'll likely see it flicker more as time progresses. Go check the brakes.

hmm, my did start to flicker on hard left turns but i've never seen it flicker since putting on new pads. I don't remember where I heard about the e-brake lever switch but I guess it has nothing to do with that.

Well I haven't noticed my breaks being in a bad condition at all... do I need to change them? or is it just a good idea and I should do it just in case?
