Hi all,
I'm new to this website but I've had my 2002 Jimny for just over a year now.
My brake warning light stays on from time to time. Ive checked the brake fluid, that's fine and wiggled the sensor wire about a bit. I'm struggling to find out if there are sensors on my brake pads.
It is a Jimny JLX Auto Estate 1328CC
Does anyone know please?

It's not uncommon for a bit of metallic debris to find it's way into the hand brake switch assembly causing a short. Coins out of pockets are a favourite.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

Thank you, that’s really helpful. I did call it MY Jimmy at the beginning of my question! Great vehicles aren’t they

Thanks Yakusa, I hadn’t thought of the handbrake, I don’t generally use it, maybe I need to, it might dislodge something.

Welcome to the forum. Best if you can remember to use the technical forum for these sort of problems as the Chat is for general stuff.

Mine has done this for the 4 years that I've had it. I think someone told me it was the ignition switch. See if wiggling the key slightly makes it go out.
