    brake warning

    when i start my car a symbol with brake flashes on the dash and beeps 3 times.
    there is a brake bulb gone could it be that.
    thought it might be fluid level but thats fine,i know i could just change the bulb and see if that sorts it but that would be to easy lol.

    thanks for the offer mate but i live in ireland,i got a scan and there is nothing showing up bar a needle sensor in the injector pump.i put in a new bulb today and it doesn't work.thought it might be the switch on the pedal but would that mean that all the break lights wouldnt work

    Most likely the sensor under the brake fluid res is being triggered by an electrical spike.I fixed mine by moving the wire from the battery which was touching the sensor and charging up the battery others have gone for a new battery which seems to cure it
