    2000 Toyota Camry Hand Brake Light coming on when turning left.. The warning light in the dash comes on but not every time when making left turn... Has 18,000 miles.

    In my wifes Ford Focus it was the master cylinder fluid level was just a bit low. Easy fix.

    Disk brake pads may be worn, which causes more brake fluid to reside in the caliper pistons, therefore less in the master cylinder.

    The master cylinder in that car probably has a little float or some way to indicate low fluid level.

    Don't add fluid. Check your disk brake pads.

    I bet they're worn out.
