      Brake light in the dash keeps coming on when I get on the brakes. The new suspension I got for up front came with 10.1's, and ever since we put pressure back in the system it flashes the brake light at me. Does this indicate too much pressure in the system or something? They're doing a fine job of slowing the car down so I'm ignoring it for now. Anyone else had this issue?

      Nothing all that street-able

      It could have to do with a few things... did you adjust your hand brake cables?

      It's possible that your parking brake switch isn't working correctly.

      Also check your fluid level

      That light also comes on when the system is low on brake fluid so it may be an easy fix
      If you were a Volkswagen....who would your owner be?
