Does your yellow ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) come on too? If so, you're being warned that the ABS system is disabled because the computer found a problem AND in a panic stop situation your brakes WILL lock up causing you to possibly spin out of control! HTH. -Jim

If your dashboard BRAKE light is on when your emergency brake is off, it usually means you need to add brake fluid. Check the level and add some fluid as needed. If the light still doesn't go away, you should probably take your car in to have the brake system properly diagnosed.

Could be an issue with the hand/emergency brake cable or sensor switch. Could also be as suggested above with the brake fluid being too low. The brake fluid level you can easily check yourself, but the rest should be checked by any local garage with a lift.
