This happened with my car too. I have a 2005 Legacy. There is a parking light on the steering column. Just turn off the light and you should be in good shape.

I had the parking brake replaced at the dealer and after about a week or so I noticed that the parking brake light went out there are no code errors.


Hi Robert, I'd like to help you; what year make and model of the car are you having problems with? Perhaps you can give me more succinct details- I'm unsure what you mean by "the parking brake light went out".
Or do you mean, the light came ON!?
It's normal for the parking brake light to illuminate when you set the parking brake; and for it to turn off when the parking brake is released.
However, if the parking brake light stays illuminated after releasing the brake, the parking brake cable may need to be readjusted at the linkage, located underneath the car...or a simple adjustment to the parking brake pedal or hand level needs adjustment.
I would bring the car back to the mechanic who made the repair since it should be covered/warrantied

Sounds like a switch that want's to stay on. I'd pull the fuse for parking lights until I got it sorted out. If it's a rotory switch Wd-40 on the shaft may help. If rocker switch for just parking that may also help. Probably not for a push button switch.

How can I turn off the rear parking lights


Normally all parking lights are controlled by the light switch. First turn turn on the parking lights and second turn turns on the head lights.

Are you sure it is not your break lights staying on? if this is your break lights - look at break pedal for break light switch staying on or not adjusted correctly. Does your car battery gets drained from your break lights staying on?

Parking Brake Light won't turn off, Cruise Control won't engage


Get down and look at parking brake assembly, If you see an electrical connector, unplug it, see if that helps? If it doesn't help or causes other issues just plug it back in.
Of course that isn't the proper fix. If something wrong with parking brake assembly, get it checked out.

Parking brake light won't go off after releasing brake lever


Park brake lights normally operate by a small plunger type switch the turns off when the level or pedal is placed in the off position. Over time the spring in the lever weakens and placing the lever in the off position no longer depresses the switch. The switch can sometimes be adjusted to make better contact, or the switch bracket can be bent so the lever and switch make proper contact.

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.
