Parking brake light stays on.

The parking brake was staying on, but after a little driving it would go off. Now it stays on, but when I hit the brakes it goes off. How do I fix this?

Do you have a separate parking brake light and a "regular" brake light? Most vehicles only have one light, it illuminates when the parking brake is set, but it also illuminates when the system detects a failure anywhere in the brake system.

You could have a separate light for the anti-lock brake system (ABS ).

Your description of a light that is on till you apply the brakes is usually a sign of some sort of system brake failure. Start with brake fluid level, then inspect the brakes at each wheel, looking for a leak.

If nothing detected there, then you likely have something more serious. (Master brake cyclinder bad, possible something in the ABS brakes, etc.)

Others may disagree, but I would suggest not driving the vehicle (except to a mechanic) until this is corrected.

SOURCE: honda civic ex 2001 parking brake light stays on then goes off

Replace rear brake pads. If that doesn't help, remove the plastic console around the parking brake lever and adjust the pull on the lever. It's probably so loose that it's trigger the light.

This is not normal, looks like someone accidentally drove several miles with the brake on.

Park brake light stays on


Try setting the parking brake and place your car in drive and/or reverse. If you can move your car in either direction without any resistance, then you need to get the parking brake fixed. Your car should not be able to go in any direction with the parking brake set. Remember to take the parking brake off after you've checked it to continue driving.
