    2006 Prius The asb and red emergency brake warning lights came on a few days ago in very wet road conditions. They are still on but the brakes don't feel any different and the emergency brake is not engaged. I have an appointment with the dealer but wondered if anyone has had this happen, and if so, what the fix was. Thanks

    I guess you meant "abs", not "asb" light.
    ABS light on usually means a failure in ABS sensors or pump module/assembly. The former is cheaper to repair, the latter costs $$$$$. I hope your Prius is still under warranty. Good luck.

    If it is truly your emergency brake light, check your brake fluid level.
