If the light for the emergency brake stays on after the brake is released in your 2001 Chrysler Sebring how do you fix it?

It's possible that you are low on brake oil! That is the easiest answer. Another possibility is that the e-brake cable might have developed slag and does not pull far enough to release the light. That might involve replacing the entire e-brake cable.

The other possibility is that you need to replace the pads and rotors, as this was the case in my Sebring.

Other possibilities are: The e-brake arm is not all the way in the downward position and not making contact with the switch. With the button in the end of the e-brake arm pushed in, press lightly down on the e-brake arm to ensure it is all the way down. Otherwise, maybe the switch under the console has become dislodged from its holder or is out of adjustment.
