    Have 2007 vw passat with emergency brake light on and a constant beeping. Son was driving the car when this happened. He pushed the brake light button in when he stopped the car. When he got back in and pushed the button off the light started blinking and there was a constant beeping that won't stop. He drives the car 125 miles per day to school. The constant beeping is almost unbearable. Can you tell us what to do to correct the problem?

A very common fault is the switch,the calipers are not much better,they will be able to sort it for you but they are bad news for a modern car !!

1996 Subaru Legacy L Wagon: Handbrake button is stuck in shaft.

this is generally a failure in the hand brake assembly itself.Pulling the center console will reveal the mechanism that locks the brake cable in the unit.You probably will notice its inability to hold in this area which will necessitate replacement .
