Check your brake fluid level, it's probably low that's why it is giving you that warning...

Why does your emergency brake dash light stay on after brake is off on 1995 civic lx?

I am not familiar with your brand of vehicle, but can give a generic explanation of the basics. When an expert on your vehicle comes along, a more specific and detailed answer can be provided. The parking [or "emergency"] brake is engaged by a foot pedal on a lever, or by pulling by hand on a lever. Engaging the parking brake closes a switch which electrically energizes the circuit to the indicator light, turning it on. To my recollection, there are two probable causes for the circuit remaining energized after the parking brake is disengaged. 1. The switch is out of adjustment so that it does not open the circuit when the parking brake is disengaged. Proper readjustment should correct the problem. 2. The switch is properly adjusted but, the switch has failed, and remains "stuck" in the "on" position. If this is the cause, replacement of the switch will be necessary.

How do you fix Ford Crown Victoria parking brake light to come on when parking brake is engaged - mine is missing the switch and the wiring?

There is a small (approx. 18 gauge) brown wire and a black wire that run from the drivers side floor board - the two wires are together and end at a tiny connector. The brown is "hot" with key on, the black is grounded. If you are missing the switch (like my car was), you can improvise with a normal pin switch and a metal bracket (I had to dremel tool it to fit). Hook up the brown wire to the bottom of the pin switch and the black wire to the frame of the pin switch (so the wires will be connected when the pin switch is engaged). Install the pin switch so that the switch is disengaged (ie not connected) when the parking brake is off. If you have the switch in the right spot, only a slight pressing of the parking brake will engage the switch, which connects the wires and turns on the "brake" light on the dash! In my car, the pin switch sits about perpendicular to the ground and the "pin" sits in a crevice at the top of the parking brake. This crevice moves upward when you depress the parking brake, which then allows the pin switch to expand. Releasing the parking brake compresses the pin switch. Electrically the brown wire needs to be grounded for the light to come on.

Your brake fluid is low or your parking brake switch is going bad or out of adjustment. make sure the brake fluid reservoir is full, and check your brake pads first. as your pads are consumed the fluid level will drop.
