It could be the brake pad wear sensor - or a simple electrical fault with one of them.

Worth unplugging, checking you have continuity, then plug back in with a light smear of vasaline on the pins to keep the salt out.

How to adjust rear brake and handbrake on Hyundia i10

look in your centre console between the seats and remove the bottom of it this would usually just pull out then there should be the end of your handbrake cables with a 10mm adjustable nut that you can get a spanner on ,obviously make sure your car can not roll and release your handbrake wind the nut in a couple of turns then try your handbrake ,keep doing this until it reaches your desired height
Hope this helps Nick

Just under handbrake there a button it showing on dashboard when turn key off brake light stay on

This is probably the run flat tyre sensor telling you that one of the tyres is down. Check the pressure on all 4 tyres, and get them all to the proper pressure. The button under the handbrake is a reset button for the run flat tyre sensor. With the engine off, hold the button in and keep it held in, start the car up, keep the button in until the light goes off. If it doesnt go off, just wait 10 or 15 seconds, then let go of the button. The warning light should go out. If this happens again, check your tyres again as you may have a puncture that you don't know about.

Chrysler neon 2002 shows a exclamation sign on

It's either your brake pads are low or you are not putting the handbrake down to the lowest seting (it could be that your handbrake lever is not disconnecting the switch properly) To see if it the pads, jack the front of the car up, lever the pads away from the discs, and if the light goes out, the pads are worn, if it doesn't, then you lever is at fault. your pads should have 5mm of meat on them, any lower and your pads will connect a circuit.
