Brake light on, but brake handle is down... Help

Hey guys when I start the car the break light doesn't come on but when I start driving, it will come on even though my e-brake handle is down, if I lift it the light gets a little brighter.

Does the brake light on mean that my break pads are too thin??? I haven't changed pads in over a year.... I thought maybe this is the prelude's way of teling me HEY CHANGE THE BREAK PADS


Also lately after the brake light comes on, about 5 min later the 4WS light comes on.



Is the brake light on a feature for when your pads are low or is it just my car acting up in the cold weather?

holy crap people. this has been covered like 15 times with in THIS month alone. its the brake fluid, as it gets colder it compresses taking up less space in the reservoir. the sensor thinks its to low. AND its a touchy sensor. it can be within the lines and still think its low. fill it up to the top line you will be FINE. just the next time you replace your pads, it will spill out a bit.
CLOSED. next time search.
