Question about 2012 Chevrolet Sonic
When I start my car up the emergency brake light immediately comes on along with the slippery tire light. Even when I engage it and disengage the emergency brake it still shows up and does not go away. How can this be fixed?

sounds like your brake cable has broken or there is something damaged in the pedal assembly.........try pulling on the release handle and move the e-brake pedal back to its off position by hand at the same time.(you may have to tie it in this position to keep it up)If that doesnt work there is a sensor on the pedal assembly that you should be able to bypass by either disconecting the wire(1 wire system) or connecting the two wires together (2 wire system)Especially if your truck is a standard the e-brake is an important safety feature,so if these steps fix the light and dinging problem you should still take the steps to have it repaired.
hope this helps.........Good Luck!

there is a contact that closes when the 4 wheel drive engages and turns the light on, if the switch has been turned on and the contact does not make a good connection then the control module see's this as a problem and starts blinking the light, this is all part of the motor on the transfer case.

at the base of the steering column there a orange and white wires these two wires come from the ing switch, you will see the connector that they go to disconnect that take a ohm meter, take the leads one lead to one wire the other lead to the other there should be res, if there is not, try a different setting . take your ing key on the the key you will see a chip take two leads from your meter and either side of the chip place the leads you will see a res reading, you should see the same at the orange and white wires . if you do not replace the ing switch the switch will come with these wires. replacing the switch takes a couple specail tools good luck and let me know how it gose

Although you've released the parking brake, inside the car, are you sure the cable moved and disengaged the rear brakes ? A physical removal of the rear wheels will be required and parking brake cable and linkage operation inspected. If the cable appears to be a BINDING , a heavy dose of WD-40 will cure it. Hope this helps
