I had the same problem and my 2003 was still under warranty so i took it in and it was actually a sensor that becomes loose when gunning it. the deal said that when it get on it the motor shifts and causes the sensor to slowing start coming out of its housing.

That's why you shouldn't take the car to the dealer for simple maintenance items.

No no... i was just saying that i took my car in and told them about the E-Brake Problem. and after they fixed the sensor everything was fine. but they might have topped off all my fluids as well so that could be a whole other story

Alright fellows...I ve gone through this problem and I have added the brake fluid, but as I drive for about 10 miles, the brake light comes back on, and the brake fluid seems to be almost empty again????? What is going on?

That sounds like a dangerous condition... like you're leaking brake fluid! Bring it in to get it checked out!

....as the brake pads & rotors wear down, the brake fluid gets lower in the reservoir, causing the brake light to come on, top up and you'll be fine.....maybe at this time it's a good idea to also check the pads for excessive wear.

You guys are the bomb!

Thanks you guys! :clap: I've been having this problem at an ever steadily increasing rate for like... a long ass time now! Then I check out this thread (which btw obviously has a lot of posts in it, and I'm blatantly just adding to it all aren't I?) and the fix is sooooooo easy?!? I love it!

By the way, I'm quoting from my 2003 Owner's Manual:
Mopar DOT3 and SAEJ1703 should be used. If DOT3 brake fluid is not available, then DOT4 or DOT4+ is acceptable. Use only recommended brake fluids.

you gotta be kidding me. for the last year or so it's been doin that. i for sure thought it was caused by my rear rotors freezing up in the winter (dumbass me leaving the handbrake on in below zero temps. drug those cheap tires for damn near a half mile). but if the fluid level goes back up from the displacement in the lines when you get new pads, i minus well hold off. it does strike curiousity though.
