If your brake warning light is on, and for reasons that you are not aware of, you should NOT be driving this vehicle. If you know what is causing the brake warning light to come on, have remedied the problem, but the warning still persists, then you will have to take your car to a shop that is equipped for working on these brakes. And if the car is equipped with traction control/anti-lock brakes, the system is a lot more sophisticated, and near impossible for the home mechanic to work on anymore.
