The parking brake light is the one on the dash so the switch by the foot pedal for the emergency brake is at fault

2004 acura tl 6speed standard. VSA light/triangle light/parking brake light come on.


your vsa is vehicle stability assist that works with the abs system, verify brake calipers for proper functioning, sounds like breaks stick and cant return efficiently after breaking, vsa is a traction control light, if both lights remain on without flashing, those systems are disabled due to a problem, scan vehicle for possible abs sensor malfunction

The parking brake light for my 2002 pontiac grand prix comes on and off at will. I applied the parking brake and release it stays on and the goes off and comes back on its confusing to me


Make sure you have the proper amount of break fluid in the resivor. the next time it comes on, pop the hood and unplug the connector that is going to the brake master cylinder, see if it goes out.
Report back if the light stays on. If it goes out then the fluid level sensor is bad. You can replace just the sensor, you do not need to replace the whole resivor.

My lights don't turn off unless the car is turned off.


This is normal due to the DRL module.
DRL = Daytime Running Light

Parkling Brake Console Light Stays On


Parking Brake Console Light Stays On The light is on because the brake fluid is low. The sensor in the brake fluid reservoir is signaling low fluid. This may be because leaking or the brake pads/shoes are worn down, so check to see if they needs replacement. In the mean time you can add brake fluid.

The Parking brake switch is activated by the brake handle. If you use a flashlight you may be able to see it next to the handle.

I turn the engine on and the headlights come on automaticaly


This sounds like DRL (daytime running lights) or, much like my 97 grand prix, the headlights came on without any user interaction, as soon as the parking brake was released, and was enabled by a photosensor on the dash.
