please can someone help, i have an r reg corsa 1.4 16v automatic and my brake system light began to occassionally light up on the dashboard last friday..(whilst driving). my trusty owners manual suggested to check the brake fluid level. however the level was good. the next suggestion in the manual is to interrupt journey and consult a vauxhall dealership... obviously i couldnt possibly pay the £350 for a full service and diagnostic check via laptop that i was quoted. I didnt really use the car over the weekend but had no other choice today and to my alarm the brake system light is now constantly lit. i have no brake lights and i have replaced the bulbs and fuse. how can i rectify this problem ? also.. if i choose to ignore the problem would it cause further damage? thankyou for any advice that anyone could offer[

feel up the pedal at the top should be a push in switch see if that has become

loose or stuck in any way. when you push the break pedal this switch should

come out activating the lights.
