Brake Light turns on and off randomly

My Brake light has been staying on when the brake is down. I looked around and was told to check the Brake Fluid, and when I did my master cylinder looked like this (Notice the black stuff on the bottom):



Is this normal? or Could this be why my brake light comes(and for the most part, stays on)?

If you mean your cell, you should check the brake lights when is on or have somebody to press the breaks for you when the light comes on and see which of your brakes lights is not working

No, the brake light comes on whenever I used to go around turns, but now its been staying on. and I'm talking about the black stuff at the bottom of the reservoir.

Re: Brake Light turns on and off randomly

that looks like the ABS reservoir, the brake master cylinder is on the other side (on the firewall in front of the brake pedal).

but yeah, that's nasty. might wanna change that out.

Re: Brake Light turns on and off randomly

you're talking about the brake light on the dash right? yeah, could just be the fluid is a little low. when it starts getting colder fluid level will drop due to contraction. this is more prominent in really old fluid as you develop moisture in the fluid. the fluid should also be somewhat clear. be careful though, if you choose to bleed and fill, i've heard of people developing leaks after bleeding and filling.
