Question about 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara
I have a 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara. Whenever I am stopped at a light, turn a corner, or just want to increase the speed, the parking/emergency brake light on the dash comes on. If I let up on the gas for a second or so, the light goes off and will stay off until I stop again, and have to push on the gas to go. I have set the parking brake and released it several times to no affect. I don't know if I am damaging the parking brake, putting a drag on the engine or what. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
SOURCE: 4WD not working properly
this is most commonly caused by the motor on the transfer case that engages the 4X4 either sticking or defective, sticking can be caused by dirty fluid, have u ever serviced the fluid in the transfer case, it should be done around 30,000 miles if u use the 4X4 allot.

Do you have a brake fluid accumulator(ABS)? If yes, the pistons/pulsing assembly are worn, and may need to be replaced.
If not, you may have a vacuum leak in the power booster (located on the firewall). Check all hose and clamps for a tight fit/cracks,etc. Vacuum leaks cause intermittent brake failure lights.
You may want to park the vehicle on a clean surface, pump the brakes a few times, and check for brake fluid leaks. If there is a leaking wheel cylinder (back brakes) , caliper (front brakes), or brake line, you will be able to see it.
Leaks cause pressure loss, and, thus, the brake warning light will illuminate.

It means there is a fault stored in the computer memory that needs to be identified and fixed.
Have the code read or take it to advance auto and they will lend you the reader so you can plug into the diagnostic port under the dash and read the code.
The code reader can then be used to reset the check engine light and turn it off.
