There is an electical switch mounted on the handle just under the cover, that turns the light on. It is a good bet it may be the issue. They are not expensive if you can get to it. Usually if you unplug the wire the light will go out, and ground it to go on, and if these steps work, the switch is the culprit.

Nissan altima driving with emergency brake on


driving with the emergency brake on cant cause what your describing... you could only where down your shoes and/or pads. BUT check the vac line that powers the power brakes... it is a large one by the master cylinder.

My emergency brake light has come on and stays on along with the little circle that looks like there is water or something on it in the message display...they both come on at the same time when starting...


I'd probably safely raise and support the rear of vehicle, make sure rear wheels turn freely, no braking action unless brakes are applied. You could raise one wheel at a time.
Check the emergency brake release mechanism, the switch and wiring circuit?
My main concern is your not driving down the road with braking action ongoing w/o brakes being applied.
My ex drove 50 miles one time with e-brake not fully released, the brakes were smoking like crazy when she got home. Glad she got home ok. I'm glad it didn't catch fire.

When the vehicle is not moving set the emergency brake and release the brake all the way to its off position. It sounds like your emergency brake is on or the emergency brake switch is not disengaging.

My brake light and battery light stays on when driving. Also emergency brake does not work.


OK, the brake light is caused most likely by the emergency brake cable being broken, and the pedal or brake lever is not in position.

Also, the brake light could be caused by low brake fluid level. Check that, too.

Battery light, is caused by the charging system not working, like a bad alternator or shorted out battery, or both.

I would have these issues repaired before driving any distance.

Emergency Brake light comes on intermittently while driving


most cases it would just be a ground wire that is loosing connection and gaining it back. other times it can be that the e-brake needs to be tightened up. i wouldnt worry to much about the e-brake coming on while your driving unless you notice there is a problem when the car is starting to drive. i would look at the whole e-brake system starting with the cables and working my way back to the shoes and drums. maybe all you need to do is just fine tune it a little

2004 explorer brake light will blink here and there while driving


check and make sure brake fluid is full, if so then the emergency brake has a switch on it that will make the brake light come on. to check this get in vehicle and push emergency brake then release it then take your hand and wiggle the emergency brake peddle and see if the light comes on and off. if so then the peddle is not comming all the way up against the switch this may be solved by just pulling up on the peddle each time the emergency brake is released,
