It sounds like you need a brake light switch. It is mounted under the dash on the pedal assembly. It is easy to change, just twists in place. Good Luck

The light is only tied to the switch at the parking brake handle. Sounds like the switch went bad, or a wire is connected poorly. You'll have to take the cover from around the parking brake handle and check it out, or if you don't feel like it, you could ignore it as well unless your inspection facility won't allow it. If you don't want to fix it yourself, it shouldn't cost much at all to have fixed.

SOURCE: abs light and brake light
Your abs brake fluid pump has stopped working. It is located underneath the brake master cylinder / reservoir. There are two large brake fluid hoses that go from the reservoir to the pump under neath. Some times you can take a pipe (or metal rod) and a hammer, place the rod against the body of the pump and tap it a couple of times while the car motor is running. If it comes back to life you will hear the classic buzz of the ABS brakes as is builds up pressure. If it still does not work you will have to replace it . I got lucky and picked up a cheap one at the salvage yard for $10 . New or used expect to pay a lot more. It has one mounting bolt on the transmission, one multi-wire plug, and two brake fluid hoses with hollow bolts. Changing out the pump is not too bad. You do have to follow the instructions on top of the master cylinder reservoir to fill and bleed the system after the install.
