In some cases you can disconnect the plug on the ebrake switch. I was able to access it by pulling back on the ebrake side cover.
Put it in gear
what knds of car do yoy have .
with your ebrake cable.
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.
the wire needs ground to function. Connecting it to the ebrake allows it to ground so just connect the video wire to any ground and it will function as if it was connected to the ebrake
press your ebrake one or two clicks and leave it on
put in reverse and go about 5 then slam it into drive and gas it to the floor or u can use the ebrake and go half way so you dont burn out the transmission and make sure that your ebrake is fully tightened other wise it wont work
AnswerWhy not get the whole assembly at a salvage yard?
usually this is done at the ebrake itself. there are two wires going to it.
Right next to the ebrake there is a pop off plastic door. There are your fuses.
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. If it does, try unpluging the wire that goes to the brake master cylinder. If this don't work then i recomend taking it to a shop to have it looked at! Good Luck... Michael on my 97 es300 the brake light was staying on because ebrake inside of back rotor was worn all the way down and system was sensing this.
Left side, under dash, by the ebrake/hood latch lever assembly..
Check the brake fluid reservoir, it is probably low. Time for a brake inspection.
under the center console. there are two screws under the ebrake you must remove to get the center console off.
Find and remove the daytime driving lite relay and or fuse, or loosen ebrake adjust a little and drive with ebrake on one click or jumper across the switch at ebrake that makes lights think its on but ya didnt here that from me LOL, Have you tried to push the small button located just to the left and below the headlight switch? Press that button four times in a row. You will hear a chime and your auto headlights will be disabled. (This may only temporarily disable them. I think after you shutoff and then restart, the auto headlights are enabled again.)
Connect the brake wire which is the color pink to the negative wire and there you go
If you lift your ebrake handle one notch, it will not engage the brake, but it will turn off your drl's. Or you could always pull the fuse.. :)
It's under your dash kinda by your ebrake. You'll see this round silver thingy, and that's your flasher

It depends on you mechanic, how much they charge per hour. It might cost you between 350 and 400 on average.
its the switch but i can use the switch when i start it with the ebrak on! it functions properly until the ebrakes off. then its just highbeams all the time from there. i have to actually shut off the car and start it with the ebrake on to do anything. if it was the switch wouldnt it not work properly ever?
do a google search, ive seen it somewhere. i would search ipod/ebrake modify or something along those lines
brake switch out of adjustment, master cylinder comp port plugged, rear brake hose collaspsed or ebrake cables seized
Typically the light will remain on if the fluid is low, or maybe the ebrake just pulled just enough that it is on..... or the switch that is triggered by the handle is faulty
