Parking Brake Light ON!

HI,

I have the parking brake warning light always on even when i release the parking brake. I have checked the fluid level, and it seems fine. What could be the problem? Is there any thing i can do to remove this.

I have a 2001 mustang V6

Does it drive like the break in on or when you turn i off does it turn off?

If the break isn't staying on it is probably a short if the break is staying engaged it is something in your P-break linkage.

If you can get to the wires just jiggle them lightly and see if it flashes if so you have a short.

don't worry your not going to die lol its either one of 2 things a short in the ebrake switch in the the center console, or your ebrake is seized and is not disengaging fully in the rear end so get the rear drum breaks checked.

I had this exact problem after my dad drove my car. what i found after a day of trying to figure out what was wrong was that some how he knocked the sensor off the break. on my 98 mustang there is a clip kinda that connects to the break and it was unhooked and that tells the lights to go on and off. so i would check under the dash where the break pad and make sure every thing is connected right. good luck

the sensor for the e-break is no located under the dash your issue was totally unrelated to this one please read more carefully it will help prevent confusion.. now the sensor to the emergency break is located inside the center console connected to the emergency break lever assembly.

As long as it is driving fine and the e-brake isn't staying engaged your fine.

If the brake is not stock it sound like they forgot to hook up the sensor that controls the light.

2008 Mustang Coupe

My Son has a V-6 coupe, 2008, that has the audible e-brake alarm and it won't shut off. I have checked the fuses, I tried to remove the fuse but then not able to shift out of park. Is there a way to disable the alarm?
