AnswerAccording to our mechanic, this indicates potential failure or damage to the brake system, generally in the ABS.The emergency brake lever might be ever so slightly up from the full release position - barely touching the switch to the dashboard brake light.Should have the vehicle looked at to find the true cause though.

Yes. I have seen many brake hoses cause a brake caliper or wheel cylinder to not be able to release. The inside lining of the hose cracks loose and acts like a check valve, it lets fluid in but not out.

no cause a 1994 may have a bigger engine

Front emergency brake? Do you mean a frozen cable? If front brake is locked may be a frozen caliper Emergency brake tied to rear brakes only

Not usually. It is possible for the mater cylinder get suck in the apply position, but the brake pedal would not return to the up position after stopping. A more common problem for the brakes to be stuck applied is a locked wheel cylinder or brake caliper, or a jambed parking brake. These issues will be at one or more of the wheels, so check there if your brake pedal is at normal height.

If you look on the right side of the parking brake it'll be a metal lever. But you have to get down and look then just push it with your finger but be careful cause it release fast UPDATE: For older DeVilles the lever is to the left about 3 inches from where the pedal should be when it's released but as the other write mentioned be VERY CAREFUL as it returns to its original position extremely fast.

It causes pulsation or shudder on the brake pedals.

this happened to me on my 98 Honda accord and it was because my brake lights and sinal lights were not working properlyMost likely, the brake light switch is stuck. Have you checked your brake fluid level? You could be dangerously low.If you mean that your exterior brake lights stay on even when you aren't pressing on the brake pedal, you most likely have a bad brake light switch.If you follow your brake pedal arm up under the dash, you should see a switch that comes in contact with the arm. It might have been knocked out of position and all you need to do is put it back. If it is in its correct position, it is probably bad and will need to be replaced.It works like this...when you press on the brake pedal, the arm moves away from the switch, thus turning on your brake lights. When you release your foot from the brake pedal, it contacts the switch and your brake lights turn off.

Contaminated brake fluid.Rusted, rotted brake lines.

most probably because the brake light switch is stuck in the "on' position. The switch is most probably right under the dash on the drivers side connected to the brakes swing arm pedal.when you step on the brake,the arm moves and set the brake light on.

yes it can. i had a 2004 ford mustang that kept reading that the camshaft position sensor was the cause. Changed the cps and still same code. changed alternator and the code cleared itself!
