There is a pressure sensing switch on the master cylinder that will turn on this indicator light on the dash if there is enough of a pressure difference between the front brakes vs the rear brakes. It would be a good idea to check brake system for leaks and fluid level.
Sometimes it's just a matter of readusting the switch by having someone hold pressure on the brake pedal while you slightly bleed either the front or back brake line at the master cylinder. Be sure you are confident you are knowledgeable to handle this... you don't want braking problems afterward... Good luck and be careful.

2000 caravan headlights stay on. And no tail lites but brake lites and turn signals still work and horn beeps randomly on its own.


Replace the turn signal switch. All exterior lights run threw it, except the high mount brake light. The horn also. If the head light switch is on the handle, this should take of it also. If the headlight switch is in the dash, you might have to replace it also if they stay on.

200 ford escort brake light stays on when engine is off


Your brake light switch stuck. Look up under the dash on your brake pedal assembly. You will see the switch on the pedal where the pivot for the brake master cylinder is. You can disconnect the electrical connector. If the lights go out, then replace the switch. This is not hard, but a little tricky because you are standing on your head to accomplish this mission. Just pull the clip out of the pivot pin and slide everything sideways to remove the switch. Pay attention to where the plastic bushings go because they have to go back in to the correct place to make everything work properly.

Why is my ebrake light staying on? the little ebrake light in the dash came on tonight and is staying on it says brake with a circle around it with a`! on the side


"!" means any of your light(head light or brake light or tail light) has burnt out.
Brake with a circle means please check the brake fluid level and brake pads for wear and tear.
