    It depends on what is wrong. There are several reasons for the Red Brake Light to come on, so you need to have the brake system malfunction Diagnosed, then the cost of the repair can be estimated.

    Ok, thanks, I am on a tight budget..... so I am trying to decide dealer or import car repair shop? I have had the car several years and this is the first thing I have had to get fixed. And, of course, the red light is making my nuts.
