I have a Mazda Capella (626) 1998 and had similar problem other than it was running on 4 cylinders and the hand brake light was not on but speedometer was not functioning and the ABS light was on. The rear ABS senssor was the problem.

SOURCE: brake sensor? something else?
You have a faulty wheel speed sensor. This is a magnetic pick up sensor on your wheel bearing hub and it controls your abs. If the car can not sense all 4 wheels then the abs will default back to normal brakes and your traction control will not work. Look at your wheel bearing hubs and check for these sensors. They are on the underside of the car and are black plastic with a wire comming out of it. A piece of gravel may have broken the pick up or the wires to a sensor may be broken as well. To replace it is usually a couple of screws on the hub assembly and a plug to disconnect from your wire harness.

THESE LIGHTS RESET AUTOMATICALLY WHEN THE SYSTEM IS REPAIRED, AS LONG AS THERE IS A FAULT IN THE SYSTEM THE LIGHTS WILL REMAIN LIGHTED

you or your son should review the owners manual in the glove box. if it is not there then a replacement
can be had very cheap on ebay. it will come in handy again and again for all types of questions. a dealer is also a good source for this type of info.

this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating
that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of
lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected
a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM,
SRS, TPMS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You
must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool
and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for
Legend of Abbreviations. ABS Anti-lock brake system. TCS Traction control system, TCM Transmission control module, SRS Supplemental restraint system, BCM Body control module. TPMS Tire Pressure Monitor System
