Brake light stays on, I know this is the park brake switch, how do I fix

The brake light has been staying on but by pulling on park brake release it would go off. That no longer works and I guess the problem is the switch. How to fix?

This means that your rear parking brake cables are frozen, replace them, and adjust them, or no state inspection stickers for you.

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.

At the upper part of the brake pedal, you'll find the brake light switch. Replace it and you should be fine.

Brake light stays on after releasing parking brake pedal feels a little soft


Check the parking brake cable to make sure it is moving freely and allowing the brakes to completely release when you pull the release lever. Sometimes dirt and rust will lock the cable. In this case, the parking brake pedal will still sit on the switch even though it is unlocked because the spring can't pull it and the cable back to the off position.

Parkling Brake Console Light Stays On


Parking Brake Console Light Stays On The light is on because the brake fluid is low. The sensor in the brake fluid reservoir is signaling low fluid. This may be because leaking or the brake pads/shoes are worn down, so check to see if they needs replacement. In the mean time you can add brake fluid.

The Parking brake switch is activated by the brake handle. If you use a flashlight you may be able to see it next to the handle.

I released my brakes and the brake light is still on.


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.
