brake fluid light

Hi
Last night my brake fluid light in the dash started flickering on and off. Sometimes it would go on and off quickly for a few seconds and then stop. Sometimes it would come on, stay on for between 2 and 20 seconds and then shut back off again. it would also stay off for a few minutes at a time as well. Basically its completely random. I went to top the fluid tonight, thinking it was low and dreaded having a small leak, but the reservoir is full. Does that mean that its just the connection in the warning light somewhere? Any ideas? Thanks!

Sounds like a gremlin but...

Are the connections on the reservoir clean and tight....(first bet)

Anyone know if the late light is a pad warning as well?

Check the switch on the parking brake lever. Lever may not be all the way down of the switch bracket needs a bit of adjusting.

mine started like that. I would check the fluid and everything would be fine. Then I noticed the light coming on more and more..... THen finally it would just stay on. THe i would fill it up wiht fluid and then my shoes would be greasy and the carpet felt greasy. I drove it like this thinking it was oil out of the parking lot at work..... THen the unthinkable happened. I mashed in the clutch it went to the floor....... let out the clutch........lifted the foot up.........clutch still on the floor and then it finally came up and tapped the bottom of my shoe....I then got to learn how to install a clutch master on my car........It wasnt that bad though.

The fluid light is not the same as the brake pad light, at least my s2 has a different sensor for each. id guess its the same on all cars, but could be wrong.

My fluid light does has stayed off for 20 miles or so now, so maybe my car was just fen with me. however it does sound like it could be the beginning of projektporsches problem. thatd be great if it was the master. i guess ill see how it goes
