brake lite on dash is on why

Asked by Jan 29, 2017 at 05:35 PM about the 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS 3.5L AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

recently replaced the right front master cylinder and all the brake pads.  Also, while bleeding the brakes ran all new fluid through the system.  ABS lite is not on just the red brake lite.  Why?

if the e-brake isn't engaged even the slightest, there may have been an air bubble when you ran the new fluid through and you might need to add additional brake fluid. if the fluid is full, you may need a brake sensor, but im not sure that your car has those.
