Question type: Maintenance & Repair

emergency brake light will not go off

1 Answer


Sounds as though the switch that detects the emergency brake being on may have gone bad. You can have a mechanic test this, or see if the fuse is bad. Sometimes a bad fuse will allow this light to come on as a warning that there is a problem that needs to be addressed.
