Not sure if this will help, but it might make sense and worked for me.

Below the Brake fluid resovoir is a brake valve. In the middle of this is a small push button. It is pressure driven. It might need to be reset. It is right near the carbon canister. Just push the button in and it resets it. Other than that, the water may have shorted out a wire causing the flickering. Good luck. Search the archives under brake warning light. It helps.

: Over the weekend i drove up to Napa and didnt notice any problems with my brakes. they do squeel every now and then but that just started a week or so ago. it started to storm on the way home and i hit a fairly large puddle that scared the crap out of me. thank god for quick reflexes and lots of expierience driving in snow and ice that i avoided spining out.

: after getting my wits back i noticed the brake warning light glaring at me. the light will stay on for most of the drive then flicker for a bit then go out. today i noticed that if i drive up hill the light will go out. i checked the brake fluid and its fine. could there be a short from the water? i dont think its the handbrake, the light never goes on even if the handbrake is engaged.

: is there something else i should be checking?

: any help would be great.

: thanks
