    nope. The light just comes on when the car is in "Drive". On my old Mazda, it is small and black instead of large and orange.

SOURCE: brake light on dashboard

Several reasons, from minor to serious. It could indicate a brake problem that could result in a loss of braking eventually, so you should have it checked asap. Do the obvious, check your fluid level, and are there any issues with the brakes? Spongy pedal, trouble stopping quickly, brake pedal going to the floor? Your emergency brake being on just slightly can cause the light to stay on, but u say it's flashing, so that's probably not it. If u have any other info (symptoms) let me know now, don't wait! countrycurt0

SOURCE: no driving lights?

Hello there - I would suggest checking the fuse for your lights in the fuse box, and check under the hood for a fuse/relay box, and have the relay tested. If the fuses and relays are good, open the hood, and try to check the connection to the headlights and make sure they are securely connected. You also mentioned that when you push the headlights switch forward for brights, and turn on the night time head lights, and neither come on but the daytime lights do, makes me suspect the switch itself may be bad. I would first check the fuses and relays if any. Second, I would replace the bulbs (if replacable). Other than that, my last guess would be an electrical problem in the wiring somewhere. I hope this information helps you fix your lights. Thank you for your time and consideration in my suggestions/answers.

Can't see the dashboard when the sun is shining. Is the dashboard supposed to have a bright light during the day?

Yes. Your dash backlight might be non-operational or you might have accidentally dimmed the control knob that controls this. Refer to you car manual. If this still persists, check fuses and relays and bulbs.
