Warning light

Had this light come on the other day and don't know what it is for I looked it up and it said its for ABS, low brake fluid, or a parking brake is on but my problem is I don't have ABS or any of those other sensors, so any help will be appreciated

Did you check your brake fluid and parking brake yet?

Try jiggling the parking brake lever to see if you can get it to turn off or at least flicker. Typically that means the switch on the brake lever is bad or has a poor connection.

So we are talking about warning light "D" or "E" or both?

"E" looks super easy. Looks like yellow no trace and goes only to the side of the handbrake.

"D" looks like it gets power from the ignition white/ red trace wire and then to the brake check relay (I don't have a clue what or where that is) brake fluid loss, I'm guessing, is at the MC on the Black wire/ white trace?

Ash,
I don't even have a parking bake sensor I don't think, and if I did I have never had it work before

Your brake fluid sensor may be bad. Disassemble the plunger, shoot some wd40 in there, reassemble and see if that did it.

Next, check your parking brake switch.

Next, do like oscar said...

Could be a PDWA of you have one. Look for a block that joins the front and rear brake lines with a wire coming from it.
