Brake Light coming on, then shutting off quick.

Amazon Amazon


My brake light briefly came on this AM and then went away. No issues with brakes - they work well, pedal is not going too far to the floor, and I will be checking my fluid soon. Brake fluids have been checked by an automotive shop over the past 2 weeks and no issues have been brought up to me. Does this fluid in the link provided work well for the Acura? I know to only get genuine honda fluids and there have been some disagreements on this forum about dot 3 vs other dot numbers.

Thanks for reading.

I had a similar issue before. The fluid level was just at the right spot where any movement may bump the master cylinder cap's float up and down. Hopefully it's that simple and you don't have a small leak in a brake line.
