What model car? On my Cadillac the problem was the vacuum line to the release valve at the parking brake pedal. The problem can be the vacuum line, the release valve or the vacuum actuator for that release valve. Mine was on the steering column.

Emergency lever switch is stuck


More likely it's the adjustable switch under your brake pedal if your brake lights won't turn off. Emergency brake lever does not turn your brake lights on at all. If you are referring to your brake light on the dash, sometimes that is also an indication that your brake fluid is low. Emergency lever switch going bad is very rare.

Check your emergency brake. Make sure it isn't partially pressed in. Try unplugging the switch to the emergency brake and see if the light goes out; if it does the switch is bad.

Emergency brake light stays on the dash. is it a troubleshooting light?


It probably indicates that the cable is not being fully retracted when brake is disengaged. Spray as much of cable as possible with WD-40, allow to sit for a few hours, the engage and disengage the brake several times untill it loosens. If this fails the cable may be stretched and needs to be replaced.

The brake light comes on, on the dash. Brakes work O.K.2003 mercury grand marquis. 112000 miles. the dealer says the pads are good.


Make sure your emergency brake pedal is all the way up, because sometimes if it goes down one notch, that can trigger that light to come on..It wont be enough to drag or slow the sar down, but it will be enough to turn that light on...Also even though your brakes are good..double check your break fluid level...

Rear brake lights do not work.


The brake light that is on the dash is for the emergency brake...When that light is on that is supposed to tell you that the emergency brake is applied if the brake is not applied then you need to service the emergency brake. And on the brake pedal there is a coupler that is hooked up to the pedal bracket that wire may be soft set try gently snapping it into place.

Emergency brake stuck


To fix this, you'll need a flat-head screwdriver and climb under the steering wheel/dash. Be careful that you face is not near the pedal assembly. You will see a metal cog that is holding the pedal assembly. Carefully, insert the screwdriver in to the cog assembly and carefully wiggle the blad tip. This should "trip" the assembly allowing the pedal to retract.

Break light....


There's a switch on your emergency brake that the indicator (on your dashlight) operates from. Sometimes it slips in its bracket and gets out of adjustment causing your dash light to stay on. Its located on the upper part of your emergency brake pedal. Hope this works for you. Goodluck.
