Clean out dirt near the emergency brake lever switch down under its boot. Dried Coke/coffee sugar or melted lollipops make a mess down there, preventing switch operation.

ditto ^^ you might not even have to be all that thorough.. just take some cleaner on some paper towel and "sand" it style clean the contacts in that switch. This seems like a super moot point though.. it could also be the bulb but I'd assume dirty contacts first.
