Since about a week ago i noticed my brake light stay on and come on during braking so i check the fluid level... BONE dry!! wtf ok maybe its burning so i refill it, lights out 2 days later its all gone again... what can i check besides a leak in the line could the caliper itself be leaking im not really sure where to start if anyone can help it would be much appreciated...

I don't know if you've done anything to the brakes, so this is a shot in the dark.

Check where the line meets the caliper. While you're looking at it, have someone press the brake pedal. After I swapped to dual piston calipers, I had a persitent leak there. It was quite the PITA to fix. Just a thought.

I'm not sure how the stang varies from the t-bird on brake system, but about 18 mo ago I had a similar problem on my car. The distribution manifold/proportioning valve had cracked, and it was slowly seeping out. Good luck with it.

If it's not one thing it's another. You, Dave, and I should all by Hondas........did I just say that? :eek:


Did you twist the brakes out of the way? or remove them from the car?
