What would cause the Emergency Brake light to not go off when the emergency light is released? What causes the ABS warning light to come on?

When I had that problem with the emergency light it was the sensor for emergency brake

Major water leak when it rains, water runs down driver side floor

Keep looking by covering area at hood etc and running water on the vehicle to locate where it is coming in---Windshield?

This is the best way if you cannot trace the stains from water to source.

My emergancy brake doesnt release. The brake handle just moves freely up and down without releaseing the brake. What would the problem be and how can I fix it?

If it is very cold where you are the cables have maybe frozen due to water in them from last time you drove in the rain.

It is also possible the cables have rusted solid. In any-case you need to have them unfrozen or replaced.

Van Leaks Water Above Emergency Brake

It does sound like it may be coming in by the windshield. Especially if it has been replaced. Most windshield replacement companys stand behind their work and will pull the windshield out again and reseal it for free. Check on that first. You may not have to do any work!

The dash lights related to the emergenct brakes come on and off, the brake lamps indicator stays on and the ABS now and then. The trunk gets water when it rains and I think it leaks around the tail lights....

I changed all the bulbs in the tail lights after cleqaning all the connections, then sealed the lens around the trunk with clear silicone sealant. This solved most of the problem. The rain would get in around the lens and short the connections. The emergency brake light indicator and the ABS indicator still go on and off, but I havent checked the sensor yet.

yes, the rotor may be warped.
Perhaps braking hard in rain or too many water puddles.
