Default Parking break light... gets stuck.

Hello,

My parking break light will come on and turn off. I think something is loose because the light will come on gover over rough roads or when I accelerate hard.

Any idea? Do you think its a sensor or just not adjusted properly?

Check your brake fluid reservoir. The light also comes on when you're low on fluid.

Default brake pads

Like tdxflex said, check your brake fluid level. A low level is an indication of worn pads, so check those too.

If you find you're not low on fluid, the parking brake switch is directly under the parking brake handle - it's a pin switch.
