Got my brake light coming occassionly when driving.
It always happens after I have used the handbrake at lights etc, I drive off the light goes off, then comes back on whilst driving. Once I have to the brakes again to slow down, the light goes off.
I thought It might be brake fluid so bought some DOT 4 and topped up the reservoir. Hope its that, but if not what could it be?
I know my brakes on my service August 18 were at 50% them, could it be brake pads?

Do you mean the brake lights themselves or the brake warning light on the dashboard?

Brake warning light is (usually) mechanically tied to the handbrake, so could be misadustement, lack of lube making it slow to spring back to default position etc

Brake warning light on the dash.
When it comes on it doesn't feel as though the brakes are being applied whilst driving, and when I apply the brakes the next time - the light goes out.
