    My brake lights stay on when the car is off so I started disconnecting the negative cable so I won't have to ask anyone for a jump.This has been so annoying but I know electrical problems could be expensive so I'm trying to figure it out.

Why wam is my car starting sometimes and runs great .. but when i pull the emergency brake release it shuts off

I'm assuming there is a sensor attached to the emergency brake pedal. Try driving the car with those sensor wires shorted together.

2003 Escapade by Jayco Class C Motorhome. The display for emergency brake light stays on regardless if the brake is actually on or off. Please advise.

Pull up on the emergency brake pedal with your hand to see if the light will go off. If it will. there is a slack adjustment for the cable going back to the rear brakes. If it won't then the switch is bad or out of adjustment. It's located on the emergency brake pedal

Check your emergency brake. Make sure it isn't partially pressed in. Try unplugging the switch to the emergency brake and see if the light goes out; if it does the switch is bad.
