97 Tahoe dash brake light

Over the last few months, my brake light on the dash comes on when braking. You can feel it in the pedal when it comes on and goes off on the next pump of the brakes.

The brake fluid is fine, no leaks and the brakes work as well as usual.

If its quiet in the truck you can hear a click kinda sound when the light goes off. So it sounds like its right at the pedal inside.

Any ideas?

It has memory.
Read the trouble code.

Re: 97 Tahoe dash brake light

Is it the yellow light or the red light?

If it's the yellow light, scan for abs codes.

If it's the red light, you have a hydraulic problem.

Re: 97 Tahoe dash brake light

My scanner will not pull ABS codes, but I can try it..

Its the red brake light on the dash. Same if you had the E brake on.
