Ok, this one is kinda for those that wanted more posts, but also because its bugging the hell out of me! @-

So heres what seems to be happening... I'll be driving along and almost as soon as I hit the brake, my e-brake light will light up on the instrument panel. Then is goes away after I have come to a full stop and start to accelerate.

Does anybody have any ideas? ...Or maye have experienced this as well?

Yikes....

Sticky Calipers? Do you set your e-brake everytime you park? The '93 and '94's have sticky calipers and need to be replaced or at least have the piston pressed in and left...

That warning lamp also indicates low brake fluid condition... Check and fill!

Cool,
Thanks guys. I'll give the filling thing a go first. How bad is a sticky caliper? Considering its winter, things are going to get put off 'til a warm day if its not critical :rolleyes:

yes i had the same problem, i just filled her up and it went away, i think by slowing down quickly(that doesnt sound right) i think it must make the fluid slosh a bit and the sensor goes off?

i also replaced my rear calipers for those from a 96

anything built after January 94 has the newer calipers, they do not seize up over time like the 93 ones did. i have one left one available for now, however i might have a few from some probes, i will look into it mike
