Have you replaced your rear pads or calipers? May have air in the lines. The reason the E- brake works is because it is engaged by a cable and has nothing to do with the hydraulics of your brake system.

What is wrong when the emergency brake light comes on when braking sometimes on a Mercury Villager and it is getting worse?

Check brake fluid level--I believe both service and "e" brake use the same light. Low brake fluid could indicate leak (Need service NOW) or brake pads need replacing due to excessive wear Try engaging the brake all the way then releasing it. It might just be sticking. The ebrake sensor could be malfunctioning. It is usually located along the ebrake pedal somewhere. Hope this helps.

you are either low on brake fluid, the Ebrake switch is on or you have air in your brake lines. try lifting the ebrake and see if the light gets brighter.
