I have had this same problem as well. What the problem is, is that your brakes are most likely warn and not have much life left on them. So when you are stopping the pistons in the caliper have to push out farther causing it to use more fluid. the light is turning on because of all the fluid in the master cylinder instead of the resivor. If i were you first thing I would check is brake pads and rotors. this happens when rotors are getting thing or pads are low on life

I have a 07' TC and the past few years I have had issues with my brakes. A few times they completly didn't work and went right to the ground making a grinding sound while i drove right into an intersection... I took it to my toyota dealership twice with this problem and they made me feel like i was crazy. They replaced my routers and i made a complaint with Toyota. Recently My brake light started going on while I was driving, so I decided to take it to another car place to get it inspected... low and behold my front and rear brakes are completely shot and the routers are rusted... the car guy was shocked that Toyota wouldn't have noticed this, because it was definitely not safe. To say the least I'm not a happy Toyota customer.

When I first bought the car of kid down the street, the brakes were super deep...almost to the floor.
My first thought was the master cylinder was bad so I just bought one and replaced it however now the brakes are even deeper.
I unplugged the antilock brakes which helps a little bit but now the speedometer doesnt work and check engine light is on.
any help or imput would be greatly appreciated...I'm trying to avoid going to the dealership as much as possible.
