Default Break indicator

2004 Sevring sedan,

Everytime I take a right turn, the "break" warning pops up on my dash and I get the warning chime, any ideas??

Default RE: Break indicator

First, check your brake fluid level. If it's low you'll get warnings. Also, you MUST inspect your lines and wheels for fluid leaks. (Don't just add fluid) If there are leaks, get them fixed. If not, then it's likely that your brake pads/shoes are worn to the point of needing replaced. As they wear down, more fluid from the reservoir enters the lines and wheel cylinders to push them against the rotor/drum. Most vehicles are designed with just enough of a reservoir to allow for the brake pad/shoe wear, so when you get the light it usually means that their usefulness has come to an end. (They become a safety risk at that point as well.)
