The light on your cluster has zero to do with the position of the e-brake pads that are prolly stuck to your rotors; only with the position of the handle. Keep rocking it.

edit: Jeesh, I gotta type faster...

Could also pull wheels, and back off the e-brake adjuster wheel thru the backing plate, then pull the rotors and clean up/service to remove rust n crap that caused the seize. Check service limits of pads (emerg and regular) and rotor (again both) while at it. GL bro
