Question about 1994 Toyota Previa

Parking break light is always on (1994 Toyota Previa)

The parking light always stays on, eventhough the break is fully released. This also prevents the cruise control from working. Where is the switch for the parking break?

    Thanks for the help. I found the switch. However, I don't think that was the problem. When I disconnect the connector from the switch, the brake light on the dash remains on. Other than a pinched wire, what else could cause the light to remain on?

If you look where the parking brake arm is you should se a switch that it pushes against . The switch should be right above the parking brake arm .

2009 Grand Caravan the parking brake light stays on after the parking brake is disengaged?

sounds like the parking brake arm is not returning to the fully off position. try pull the release handle and at the same time pull up on the lever. if the light goes out then its not fully returning. it could be out of adjustment or the brake cables or sticking and need to be freed up.

Apply the parking brake with the vehicle parked, engine turned off and transmission in Park. Release the parking brake completely, then apply it again, and ensure that it is fully released. Turn the ignition on, check to see if the Parking brake warning light is on. If it is NOT on, apply the parking brake and check to see if the warning light comes on. If the light come ON wihen the Parking brake is applied,.....fully release the parking brake and check if the warning light goes OFF. If it does NOT go off, then an adjustment is needed at the parking brake switch.

My (brake) light turns on in the dash and wont go off what can it be?...

This light can be caused by your parking being on. If not, it's most likely caused by low brake fluid. Check the fluid level under the hood and fill it up if needed. If that doesn't get rid of the light, you should have it towed to a dealer and don't drive as your brakes may fail at any moment without notice
