Blinking brake light

Just got my LT back from the shop. 12,000 mile check up and all fluids changed. When I took it in, I told the guy that the brake light starts blinking with I go down a steep hill. I have to cut the engine off and restart, then its fine. He changed the brake fluids. While riding this weekend it seems fine for awhile. Then it started the same thing. After restart it was okay. I plan to call the service guy, but have you guys any ideal what the problem may be.

Re: Blinking brake light


Could be a weak battery as several applications of brakes will stress a weak one and trip a fault. Have the battery load tested (can do that at Autozone) or bring it on up here to Hazel Green (2 hr ride). I can load test it.
