So what does it mean when the emergency brake light comes on when I am pushing down on the brake and it feels kind of spongy?


Air in the system. Check your fluid level. I think you will find that one of the reservoirs is dry.

Checked the fluid, didn't realize that it was two resivoirs even though I thought it was funny that there were two caps. I never said I was the brightest one in the world. They both have fluid. Any way I can do a test to see if there is air in the line?
