There is a small switch above the brake pedal with a black wire going to it, they stick or the little bracket they set in gets bent, this allows the switch to stay on and in turn the light for the E-Brake stays on, press on the switch and push the little spring loaded plunger in, that light should go out, also make sure the brake pedal is all the way up, if it doesn't want to fully return adjust the park brake cable.

My 1998 Mazda protege is stuck in park? Help me fix please


the release is a solenoid that is powered by applying the brakes. do you have brake lights. that gives you an indication that the signal is being generated and that the solenoid is either bad or miss adjusted. this device is within the shifter console.

Hi. My handbrake light is on solid. What does this mean? mazda 323f 1998 1.5


check the brake fluid level, if low the brake light will light, if fluid is full then you may have a bad switch for e-brake handle, unplug switch ,if light goes out then switch is bad. also when e-brk is released make sure handle goes all the way down. start there hope this helps.

Abs light stays on/strong smell


Check the E-Brake, make sure that the ebrake is not engaged and that it is fully disengaging. If that is not the problem, then there is something with the brake calipers or rotors that are not allowing your brakes to fully disengage
