2010 Subaru Outback Limited 2.5i CVT
The other day I was cruising home and I noticed that the "Brake" light on the left side of the dash. I quickly reacted and put my foot on the breaks to find there was nothing wrong with them. I drove home and when I parked I checked the brake fluid resevoir to find the apporpriate amount of fluid was in the system and checked the sensor attached to it. I found nothing wrong. I took my car up to a hill and decided to do a few more tries with troubleshooting. I started at the top of the hill and put the car into neutral and turned the parking break on. The parking break locked. I then turned off the parking brake and braked down and slowed at various speed to ensure the integrity of my brakes, I will also mention that I heard no sqeaking indicting the brakes still have life. There is no fluid leaking from my car, and as far as I know the brakes were replaced not too long before I came into possession of the car. I assume a sensor is tripping the light off, but the car seems fine to drive; although I do with extreme caution. Please shed some knowledge on me. I like figuring things out my self, but I can see no reason for the "Brake" light to be flashing. Especially before school starts this fall. Offer insight or anything. I want to resolve this issue and if anyone has had a similiar issue I would like to here feedback. Thanks!
