Brake icon on the dash is lit but the emergency brake is off. How do I correct this?

Asked by Jun 12, 2014 at 06:46 PM about the 1999 Jeep Wrangler Sport

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The brake light on the dash came on one day and has not gone off.  I thought it was the
emergency brake was stuck but that was not the case.  Is there a brake sensor
somewhere on the vehicle that needs to be replaced?  If so where is it?

Your on track. The brake light means the emergency brake is either on or the brake reservoir is low on fluid. There is a sensor in the reservoir. Make sure the level is to the max line. You must be leaking brake fluid. Check under and around the car for a leak.

Also check front brake line to make sure it is not frozen. You can do this by pulling it off and then seeing if it will move, if not replace.
