Post E-brake light?????

I was driving down Hwy 16 yesterday and my E-brake light just came on and styed on. Moments later I got a Check Engine light because my O2 sensor in my exhaust manifold went out. I also get the E-brake light when I slam on the brakes really hard. Any ideas why any of this is happening

E-brake light is the same as the brake warning light. Check the brake fluid level ASAP. If the level seems ok and there is good pressure on the brake pedal, then the ebrake switch may be defective. Either way, I would take it back to the dealer ASAP.

when you mean ebrake light, is it the one that comes on when you pull the lever up?

if it is, i just think your trigger switch is llose and needs to be tightened. its under the center console (gear lever/armrest/storage thingie between front seats), so just pull that out and take a look see. the screws are hidden in the storage space under the armrest.

Thanks guys,
I looked under my hood at the brake fluid. It is not at minimum yet. It is about a centimeter above it. Is this ok?

Brake fluid sounds ok. Probably, the ebrake switch is broken. Take it back to the dealer and have it fixed.
