The binding of the brakes is causing the pads to overheat, which is causing the smoke. You need pull the wheel and check things out. Your caliper must be bad (not releasing). You need to replace the caliper, brake pads, and have the rotor cut (a full service parts store or shop cuts the rotor perfectly smooth on both sides), or replaced (it may be cheaper to just buy a new rotor). You should also always change the pads (and check everything else) on the opposite side. So, if u do the brakes on the driver side front, always do the front pass. side at the same time, likewise if u do rear brakes.
Whenever you do brakes u should also flush out the brake lines (by bleeding the brakes) until the brake fluid flows absolutely clear. Old brake fluid is the #1 reason for caliper failure. I've seen many times people replace brake components w/out changing the brake fluid, only to have the brakes wear out very quickly, or not function properly. good luck! hope this helps> please rate this!couontrycurt0

You say the brakes work fine, so lets start with the e-brake switch,make sure swith is working and ebrake is all the way off, the next thing is the sensor in the mastercylinder, is the brake fluid low or is the sensor working,with this sensor and the ebrake sensor try unplugging and see if light goes out, start with these things first,also there are no brake fluid leaks on the ground,this would cause the poprotioning valve to turn the light on also,but lets start with the other things first. hope this helps.
