intermittant "Brake" light while in hard corners?

Are any of you W124 (or other models) owners experiencing intermittant "Brake" light while in hard corners? BTW: it's the Parking/Emergency brake light in the instrument cluster, not the ABS or "brake pad warning" light.

The 1988 W124 wagon does this but I can't figure out why.

TIA,
:-) neil

Check your brake fluid level. You might be down a little, and when you hit a hard turn, the fluid level tricks the sensor.

Yep, the brake-fluid was low, but not at the minimum level. Filled it up. Now to take some fast corners . . .
