i hate it when it does that!

Hey man i have an 89 legend sedan and mine keep on coming on also, usually right when it is shifting in 2nd gear cuz mine is an automatic. i'm not sure what it is but i think it is a bad sensor. all i know is that it will cost $50 to get it looked at and then it will probably take another $350 to get it fixed. I have been driving with mine on for the last 25,000 miles and it hasn't bothered me yet. so you should be alright till you fall into some money! good luck!

First things first......

Check the fluid level in the brake master cylinder. If it's low, the BRAKE light will come on. If the BRAKE light stays on for a length of time (I forget how long) the ALB light will also come on.

Top off the master cylider with fresh fluid and both lights should turn off.
