Hey, I have a '95 FZJ80 and the brake light wont go off, it gets dimmer when I take the parking brake off, but wont go away...was wondering if anyone else has this problem. I have another friend with a '91 FJ80 that has the same problem as well.

Any info appreciated...thanks :)

one of two things

one the brake fluid is low

two, the sensor on the master cyl in bad.

if not one, then unplug the cap, light will go out. get new cap or leave it unpluged

also CC will not work if light is even dimmly lit

It could be the switch in the hand brake too. Not sure how you wire around it.

it could be but's its not. I can almost promise it's the brake master cap sensor.

When the sensor goes the light stays on dim.

If the swtich for the hand brake was bad it would stay lit solid.
