    On the weekend I noticed when hoofing it around a left hander that a red light with a brake indicator on the dash comes on for a second or so.

    Could this be low brake fluid levels or just the handbrake light switch being activated for some reason due to g-force loads?

    Any ideas appreciated.

    Check your manual - its either low brake fluid or more probably just your pads are wearing thin.

    I was thinking fluid levels, why would a light come on going around a left hander if its the pads wearing thin?? surely it would be more prone to this when braking hard??

    Good point - I saw the word 'corner' and assumed brakes were involved. Ooops.

    Never assume............
