    2007 CRV Parking Brake Light

    Long time lurker, first time poster!

    I have my 07 CRV (which rocks), but my parking brake has been coming on and off intermittently. I know the last gen crv has had problems with the brake fluid strainer and such. I know my pads are worn, but still in good condition so I thought it might be the fluid, but it's above the "MIN" line even with the large plastic weld in the reservoir (about 1/4"-1/3") I'm not sure if that's enough to cause an issue. There is no float in the brake fluid container under the hood anymore, not sure what else to do at this point besides adding a little more brake fluid which I want to avoid if I don't have to since I don't want to have to remove some when I swap the pads.

    Edit: I park my cark with the parking brake on usually, so it might be the switch not sure how DIY this may be.

    There is still a brake fluid level sensor, just not the old 'float' style in the cap. The connector is to the left bottom side of the reservoir. The level sensor circuit completes a path to ground when the fluid level is low, so unplugging the sensor would interupt the circuit and allow the light to go off if the fluid level is what is causing the warning.

    The park brake switch completes a path to ground when the parking brake is applied, so unplugging that switch would help to isolate the fault as well if you determine that the fluid level is not causing your issue.

    All BS aside, if there is a problem with your brake system that you cannot correct quickly and easily on your own, wouldn't it be best not to dink around and get the system inspected by a qualified technician ASAP?

    Yeah, I made an appointment either way. Was just wondering if it I was missing something obvious. I'm still banking on the fact that my fluid dropped because my pads are worn but we'll see!
