DASH LIGHT AS EXCLAMATION POINT

1999 Toyota Corolla • 152,000 miles

Hi sometimes the dash light as an exclamation mark intermittently comes on. This is mostly when the car is cold. It will stay on for a while then go off and then when stopping at lihhts and then excelcerating the light comes back on. Could you advise what this means. Thank you

That is a brake system warning light. Have the wheels removed and the brakes inspected. Check the fluid level first though.

Yes, the low fluid is usually due to the pads wearing down and the fluid moving down into the calipers to fill the void.
