Brake light is on but ebrake is down.
When I press my brake pedal itfeels like
there is no resistance until it touches the
ground and if I press to hard to fast there
this grinding sound.
Brake pads,s are bad,and this is this reason you have very little pedal,you need to have this repaired quickly,especialy if you here grinding from them.
Also, depending on the year, make and model of the vehicle sometimes a brake light indicator being on when the ebrake is down means the brake fluid is low or you have another problem possibly with the ABS system, if so equipped. But, T_S_T above also gave excellent information.
If the pads are worn down, the pistons are pushed out further to make contact with the rotors so there is less fluid in the system. That is why the peddle is going down. Get the brakes done now.
