SOURCE: brake failure/anti lock symbol and parking brake light stays on

The master cylinder has failed, the fluid bypasses from one cylinder to the other, this is really 2 cylinders in one, the brake system is split in an X pattern.

It sounds like the shifter lock out solenoid has gone bad.It is a solenoid that releases the shifter when you push the brake pedal.

Replace rear brake pads. If that doesn't help, remove the plastic console around the parking brake lever and adjust the pull on the lever. It's probably so loose that it's trigger the light.

This is not normal, looks like someone accidentally drove several miles with the brake on.

The parking brake light stays on when brake is released.


Be safe: Check the level of your brake fluid first. It may well be that you have low brake fluid.

If your brake fluid level is okay suspect the switch activated by the parking brake. And also be aware, that it can take a few seconds for that brake light to extinguish after start up..

The regular brake warning light is for the parking brake being applied or the brake fluid is low. You would need to get the abs system scanned for trouble codes to proceed.

Apply the parking brake with the vehicle parked, engine turned off and transmission in Park. Release the parking brake completely, then apply it again, and ensure that it is fully released. Turn the ignition on, check to see if the Parking brake warning light is on. If it is NOT on, apply the parking brake and check to see if the warning light comes on. If the light come ON wihen the Parking brake is applied,.....fully release the parking brake and check if the warning light goes OFF. If it does NOT go off, then an adjustment is needed at the parking brake switch.

Brake light stays on


The brake light usually comes on when the parking brake is applied. If the brake light is still on after the parking brake is released, then there is something wrong with your brake system. Check your brake hoses, brake lines, and master cylinder for leaks of brake fluid. If you cant find anything, see a mechanic for help.

Parking brake light stays on.


Do you have a separate parking brake light and a "regular" brake light? Most vehicles only have one light, it illuminates when the parking brake is set, but it also illuminates when the system detects a failure anywhere in the brake system.

You could have a separate light for the anti-lock brake system (ABS ).

Your description of a light that is on till you apply the brakes is usually a sign of some sort of system brake failure. Start with brake fluid level, then inspect the brakes at each wheel, looking for a leak.

If nothing detected there, then you likely have something more serious. (Master brake cyclinder bad, possible something in the ABS brakes, etc.)

Others may disagree, but I would suggest not driving the vehicle (except to a mechanic) until this is corrected.
