1992 Toyota Paseo 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 166000 miles
My battery light (pic of battery) and brake light (the word " brake" ) on my dashboard started coming on. They come on at the same time and go off at the same time. This has been several days. No one will look to see if it's a code. They aded brake fluid and changed the alternator belt. They sprayed some gunk off a wiring harness. ≪ eye roll> If they were separate problems, the ligths would come on independantly. It's still doing it.
Last night, in the dark, I realized that when the dash idiom lights come on ( at the same time, mind you), the headlights get brighter and the fan speeds up. After a while, they go off and everything returns to normal. Could it be the voltage regulator? This all started suddenly when I was driving down the freeway on a sunny day with no traffic. There is no book publishe dfor this car. I'd get rid of it, but it gets 38 mpg.
