hi for info the brakes warning light on dash is also an indication that brake fluid level is low? or there may be a leak resulting in fluid level drop ? also considering age of car you may need to inspect brake pads wear ? if your car has low brake pads wear indicators attached to pads ? or the hand brake switch req's checking to ensure it is being pushed to off position when h/brak is down ? so fluid level low is the obviouse 1st check as fluid will displace from reservoir as pads wear low hence the level indicator on fill cap trips on may i suggest if it is low level b4 you top up? check your b/pads if you have not done so recently? or replaced since new ? hope this helps you locate problem best wishes from the uk

IF U SET DOWN ON THE ROCKER PANEL ON THE DRIVERS SIDE AND WITH YOUR RIGHT HAND REACH RIGHT UP TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE PARKING BRAKE ASSEMBLY, THEIR IS A LEVER U CAN FEEL (ITS GOT LIKE A LITTLE HANDEL TO THIS LEVER) AND I BELIEVE U PULL IT TO U, THIS IS THEIR INTENTIONAL TO RELEASE THE BRAKE, I HAVE A 97 AND I HIT THE PEDAL WITH MY FOOT SOMETIMES AND THE LIGHT WILL COME ON SO I HAVE TO RESET IT THIS WAY, I THINK TO MUCH FORCE OR OUT OF ADJUSTED BRAKE CABLE WILL CAUSE ALSO. GOOD LUCY TO U..

Very common problem do loads. You need to lubricate the handbrake linkage under the rear seats ( the bit ur bum goes on). If you have a estate car then the seats will flip up but if its a saloon car then you will have to remove 2 13mm nuts for either side seat. When ur under there, u will see a little black panel in the middle, remove it 2 8mm self tappers and a 13mm nut. right you should now see the linkage where the cable splits to either side of the car. Get a load of wd-40 and spray whilst some else operates the handbrake 100 times or so. sorted! Dont forget to adjust the handbrake at the wheels after, go all the way with the adjust and back off two clicks either side.
Hope this works and good luck1

There should be a manual release. Reach up along the parking brake pedal. Ford has a manual lever that you pull toward yourself to release the parking brake. Hope this helps our with your problem. Best of luck.
