SOURCE: how to reset brake light
Be sure fluid level is proper. IF the ebrake is stuck on ever so slightly that will cause this problem as well. Theres a small chance that the sending unit in the brake master cylinder is bad. The sole purpose of this is to check fluid level. If the brake fluid resevoir is full, a quick test would be to (with key off) unplug the sending unit into the master cylinder and then start vehicle. This would let you know rather or not this is the issue. Let me know if you need any farther assitance, thank you for using fixya.com

sounds like your brake cable has broken or there is something damaged in the pedal assembly.........try pulling on the release handle and move the e-brake pedal back to its off position by hand at the same time.(you may have to tie it in this position to keep it up)If that doesnt work there is a sensor on the pedal assembly that you should be able to bypass by either disconecting the wire(1 wire system) or connecting the two wires together (2 wire system)Especially if your truck is a standard the e-brake is an important safety feature,so if these steps fix the light and dinging problem you should still take the steps to have it repaired.
hope this helps.........Good Luck!

the release on the ratchet mechaninsm located down on the driver's side kick panel is stuck, be careful with your fingers. the release will come free with some manipulation

Either the switch on the lever is not adjusted or is going bad, or the return spring is weak. You could try spraying the cables where they enter the outer coverings with wd 40 or other spray lube and making sure that the cables are not hanging up as well. (good to do once in a while anyhow as maintenance)

You cannot "disable" the TPWS. Also, when you replace sensors, they need to be programmed to the TPWS computer.
