Default Brake Light

I was wondering what could cause the brake failure message to come on ONLY when I brake into a turn...it's kind of annoying. Also, my SRS and airbag light came on after the body shop changed out my battery. When I hooked it up to an OBD II computer code reader, nothing comes up.

The Average scanner won't read SRS. The codes came from low Voltage. They will need to be cleared.

For the brakes check the brake fluid.

Fluid looked clean. It was black but its not clumpy and has a transparent look to it. Any idea what else it could be?

are your brake lights working(when you hit the brake pedal do they light up)? Do all of them light up? If one brake light goes out it causes the brake light failure to come on?

Both brake lights work fine. See, the catch is it is only at high speeds or when I brake into a turn at ANY speed. This is what is truly confusing me. I'm going to have the low voltage codes cleared for the SRS/Airbag this week. I really really hope this isn't an expensive problem to fix because I'm still going to sell it.

Make sure it is all the way on Max and see if it still does it. Or even go a hair over it.

It might help some but not get rid of all of it. The Yellow top optima might be the best for the job.

With my little almost 400 watts I have to have my car running to power all 3 of the Amps.
