try pulling up on the parking brake while holding out on the release handle, if the light stays on u likely have a pressure problem , check the fluid level first

look on the master cylinder you should see a sensor plugged into it with a wire running from it into the harness. trace and check that wire for bare spots or grounding. if not then unplug the wire and see if the light goes off. if it does then change the master cylinder. if it don't then look at your wire again for grounding
