    spell out u/s light. The parking break has to be adjusted from the underside of the Rodeo. There are two types of Parking Brakes for the Rodeo, a Pull type mounted on the Dash, and a hand brake type on the transmission hump. Either way should be adjusted the same by finding the cable and turning both nuts on the Y junction putting a tension on the cable. But make sure it stays somewhat loose so the brakes doesn't apply when the brake is off.

I had the parking brake replaced at the dealer and after about a week or so I noticed that the parking brake light went out there are no code errors.

Hi Robert, I'd like to help you; what year make and model of the car are you having problems with? Perhaps you can give me more succinct details- I'm unsure what you mean by "the parking brake light went out".
Or do you mean, the light came ON!?
It's normal for the parking brake light to illuminate when you set the parking brake; and for it to turn off when the parking brake is released.
However, if the parking brake light stays illuminated after releasing the brake, the parking brake cable may need to be readjusted at the linkage, located underneath the car...or a simple adjustment to the parking brake pedal or hand level needs adjustment.
I would bring the car back to the mechanic who made the repair since it should be covered/warrantied

I just replace my rear rotors and pads for mu 2011 Subaru outback. Now my parking brake light is flashing. How to reset the brake light?

You should check your parking brake adjustment. That light means the parking brake sensor isnt aligned properly.. You might have missed the adjustment when you replaced the parking brake linkage. There is no way to reset the light without fixing the issue.

i don't mind shouting, I'm old school , from days of caps only terminals and teletypes ASR33s , CAP ON. Viet Nam,...... etc....

i have only questions, I'm retired now.. and can help.
what transmission< A/T or M/T? i drive M/Ts, what do you drive.?
shifter lever not working.? the key word here is "Lever".
does that mean the lever is stuck , or the A/T fails to shift
automatically from, 1st to 2nd. my guess is lever.

ok , i think you have A/T and on A/T cars the brake light
switch is the logical permissive, to shift out of PARK ,them means
if the brake switch is bad or not adjusted correctly the
A/T park lock circuits fail.
You can say, my car is stuck in PARK and we all know what that means.

on most SUZ, cars, thereis shift console defeat switch,for this lock soleniod , inside..
on many its lower left corner of console shifter base next to your seat.
the cars operator guide in the glove box (free from suz dealer)
and tells you all this, driving car with out that free book is problematic, they say.

no, the tail lights are not brake lights.
they are 2 independent systems,
if you need a full shop manual its here.

On my 2008 ford escape, there is a light on my dashboard that keeps coming on. it looks like a box with an exclamation mark in the middle. i dont know what that means. im wondering if i need a tune up or...

Brake warning light.

If the light is on all the time, it could mean you simply forgot to release the parking (emergency) brake. The brake warning light remains on when the brake is set as a reminder. If the brake warning light remains on when the parking brake is released, then something is amiss.
In some cases, the brake warning light may remain on if the switch on the parking brake pedal or lever is misadjusted. Nothing is wrong with the brakes and a simple adjustment should fix the problem.
If the brake warning light comes on when you apply the brakes, or is on continuously, it means that hydraulic pressure has been lost in one side of the brake system or that the fluid level in the master cylinder is dangerously low (due to a leak somewhere in the brake system). In either case, the fluid level in the master cylinder should be checked. Adding brake fluid to the master cylinder reservoir may temporarily solve the problem. But if there's a leak, the new fluid will soon be lost and the warning light will come back on.

It seems to occur usually when car has been sittin a while. ill back out of parking spot and when the wheels start to turn it seems to lock up. when i give it a little gas its like moving a tank. ill drive...

Sound like the the emergency/parking brake adjuster is stuck.
The S60 as well as other P2 Volvos feature what's called "drum-in-hat" rear brakes that means that inside each of the rear disc brake rotors is a tiny drum brake. The rear discs function as the service brakes and the rear drums function as the emergency/ parking brakes.

That said, the parking brake adjuster works the same way as it does on most any other vehicle with a drum brake setup.

The parking bake adjuster works only when backing up. Sound like your may be getting stuck. The "hop" you feel may just be when the obstruction comes free/loose and fully release the emergency/parking brake

When it comes to poor parking brake operation, check for contaminated or excessively worn parking brake shoes.

I am surprise the dealer did not suggest this as a possible cause. Go back to dealer or find a reputable brake shop to check this out. Both rear wheels and rotors should be removed and the parking brakes inspected. This is a lot easier and cheaper fix than it will be if the problem is in the transmission (which it could be).

Please post a comment when you find out the true cause if this or something else so I can add this to my knowledge base. J

The parking brake is disengaged and when i am driving it will flash

In most cases when the brake or parking light comes on it's due to the switch not making full contact with the parking brake linkage. Sometimes just manually pulling the brake back will make the light go off. Fix is to adjust the switch out just a little so that the switch goes off when the brake is released.

Usually that means there is slack in the Parking brake cable. If you have an owners manual it should mention using the Parking brake.

On most cars if you back up and use the Parking brake several times it will tighten the cable and adjust those brakes.

There is a switch under the dash that makes contact with the cable assembly and when the cable has slack, the switch will not make contact like it should. Thats when the light comes on.

GMC Yukon - ABS light and parking brake light come on while driving but they will go out if the car is restarted. Could it be a sensor or ECBM?

try to pull up on your parking brake pedal with your hand when light comes on. if this makes it go out u will need to adjust the parking brake switch under the pedal. or replace pedal spring that holds it up.
