How do you get the brake light to go off if your hand brake is not in service?

I had the same problem. There is a small part in the rear axel that needs to be replaced/reset. It is a sensor. I was told I could do it myself, but didn't want to mess anything up so I took it to the dealer. $45 later, no brake light on.

Check your brake fluid reservoir. On some vehicles, if they leak fluid out, the parking brake light comes on as a warning.

The red " BRAKE " light in your dash comes on if the parking brake / emergency brake is on and also if the BRAKE FLUID LEVEL in the brake master cylinder located in your engine compartment is LOW

It should go on when the brake is on and off when you release the brake.
