A girlfriend who's out of town has a 99 toyota camry and there is a red brake light on the dash that shows sparks intermittently. Is that a low pad warning, or something else? No owners manual by the way.

Inefficiency in the matter/anti-matter transfer unit.

Low brake fluid? Low brake system pressure?

NOTE: This is a theory based on 10 minutes of messing around on Google. I'm not a mechanic. I work on guns, not cars.

A Google search turned up something called a "charge warning light" which in Toyota-speak means the light is somehow tied into the charging system.

Spend the $20 and buy a manual for the car.

Hope this helps

check the brake / taillight bulbs.

edited to add, check brake fluid also, if its low your pads may need changing.

running low on turn signal fluid.

Her headlight fluid is low.

Is her e-brake on? Even 1 click on the e-brake can cause it to come on, it might flash intermittently to bring your attention to it.

It's just a reminder that her low-rider switch is on - which can cause sparks when driving over bumps in the road.

Now that's comedy!

Actually, it's a warning that something isn't working properly in the lighting system, most probably in the tail lights or brake lights. I had a problem with that a few years ago and
it turned out to be a ground wire that had worn through and broken in the wiring harness
on the trunk lid, on the hinge. Splicing the broken wire fixed it.


Check your lights, all of them in all modes of operation.
