There may just be a burned out bulb in the dash or you may have a button not making a connection at the handbreak. The RPM issue it completely different and may have many causes.

How much would it cost to fix handbreak light it on even when handbreak is on

The handbrake light is also the 'low fluid' warning light. It is connected to the handbrake as that ensures that it is checked every time you use the handbrake. If it remains on all the time, then check the brake fluid and top up if required. If the fluid is ok then it is probably the switch on the lever and is adjustable

Passat 03 handbreak light

This may be caused by low fluid in the master cylinder. Try topping up the master cylinder with fresh brake fluid that's recommended for your vehicle. 1_10_2014_2_26_42_am.png

My handbreak light wont turn off after i relase the handbreak why is that happening should i be warried about this

Its just a spring pressure switch located close to the brake lever.
Check that the lever goes down completely. Could be an old, hard french fry or some other debris jamming the mechanism or, it is probably just stuck or broken. Removing the wire connector from the switch should turn the light off. If the brake is adjusted properly the vehicle wont move with the brake on, so you wont need a "light" to remind you to release it.

Handbreak light on dash board remains on even while driving. Also at present fixing break pads had them bleed. Why is the light for the hand break on. Handbreak working just light remains on while driving


it is either the switch under the handbrake is jammed or the fluid level is low or has air in the system, park the car on a hill both up and down to see if the light goes off. get back to me if you need more info.

Brake light stays on. Fluid ok.

First disconnect the battery for one minute and reconnect it. This may reset the light. If not check the fluid level sensor. If it is OK the indication would be the master cylinder has a problem. As always any brake problem should be addressed quickly.

Check the switch on your handbrake to see if it is loose or has been moved. They are usually somewhere close to the handle under your hand brake boot.
