Just checking the brake fluid will not fix the light problem.

If the fluid is low add some. If the light returns in a few days/weeks find the leak!

It's not rocket science... when the pads wear the fluid drops because the calipers require more fluid when in the normal position.

In some cases the float in the resevor can stick but only if it get low in the first place- like when your flushing the system

Another point - low fluid -not due to a leak - can indicate that your going to need brakes soon cause the pads are all wearing out.

vandykenf3 - Putting in more brake fluid did the trick for me. I was first confused because I assumed that the red brake light on the dash only had one meaning, that the parking brake was on. After reading this forum and realizing that the light had multiple meanings, I filled up the brake fluid reservoir and the light & beeping problem went away.

Default Problems with Audi A6 warning brake light

Hello colleagues,

I found this site very interesting as I possess Audi A6 2004 which has a problem with a warning that started to show about 2 weeks ago. In the display it shows Centre Brake Light, and then it disappears and a yellow sign saying in German Brems Licht continues to be shown on the small display of the car. As i read in the internet from the similar cases of other people, I added some brake fluid but the warning is there, it didn't disappear.
Could you please somebody tell me what to do in order to fix the problem.

Thank you in advance for your kind support and cooperation.

I've got the same thing happening in my '02 A6 Avant 3.0... brake warning light (not abs light). I'm figuring cold weather is probably helping to bring it on but, as I've learned, this isn't going to go away on its own. I feel like I'm hearing some unusual creaking in the rear suspension too. Hoping it's not a big thing but already aggravated because my mechanic is talking abs module and the abs light isn't flashing.

If it's just the fluid, is there a special audi brake fluid I need to use?

Let's try again --

RED BRAKE light usually means low fluid or the ebrake is on.
ABS means there is a problem with the ABS system or you have turned it off
(O) means low front brake pads or the wire got cut.
If the pannel says center brake light - ya gotta bulb out

If you girl friend begins screaming while your driving -either your going too fast or a bee flew down her blouse. In either case you have to do something about it. Like slow down, stop and help with the bee or get a new girlfriend.

If your RED BRAKE light comes on when turning - check the damn fluid and top it off cause it is low.

Paddy - come back after you have added brake fluid. OK?

Angry Brake light

Hi, I have the same problem with my 06 A4, only on right turns
its driving me nuts, fluids are fine. Brakes are fine. I also have the engine check light on, then low oil pressure light comes on, then truck lid light comes on, then the car runs really crappy when in drive and stopped, put it in neutral
it runs fine. My mechanic changes my oil every 5000 miles with synthetic, is the car possessed.
