A faulty brake master cylinder reservoir filter can cause the brake system indicator to illuminate after a cold start and then go off. Replacement of the reservoir filter will commonly fix this problem.

    Brake light on and emergency brake NOT being used. Happens most frequently when the temperature is cold.
    Dealer repaired....but light still on.
