Question about Cars & Trucks
Warning light on dash "brake" stays on as well as the beeping warning associated with this. I have removed the switch at the e-brake and even jumped it to test with no luck. any ideas would be greatly appreciated. thank you
On this car, I think, the light is dual purpose, it shows up when the parking brake is on and when the wear sensors in the brake pads detect that the pads are too low. It could be that you need new brake pads.

Disconnect vehicle battery for 2 minutes, reconnect battery and vehicle will do a system check, if all is ok the light will go out.

I just brought my car in because the AC was working, but not blowing cold. The emergency brake light won't go off. And the automatic door locks won't work (the doors lock manually but not auto). We just got the call that the entire fuse box under the steering wheel needs to be replaced. 270 for the part, 300 for the labor. !?!?!?!? It all just happened over the last weekend! They said not to drive it anywhere because you never know and all the electric could go!!! Not sure what caused it, but it sounds like I'm not the only one...

I had EXACTLY the same problem with a friends car i was doing work on.
Your problem is almost certainly a faulty brake light switch. This is a common fault and brings on the dash lights you describe. The switch is located just above the brake pedal and is easy to fit. If you can get the OBD codes read...My guess is it will show up this switch as faulty.
