This is not a direct answer for your question, there are a few things that could be wrong. BUT in general on just about every vehicle regardless of manufacturer there is only two things that will turn the light on 1) the parking brake 2) The fluid level sensor in the master cylinder reservoir. check your fluid level and top of, if full open and see if the float is stuck down I had a similar problem with my 98 jetta, the light staying on was accompanied by other problems such as headlights not working, no blower for heat/ac, no windshield wipers. It turned out to be the electronic ignition switch located inside the steering column. If you have any of these other symptoms it's probably the cause. Common problem for these cars.

Why the emergency brake light does not come on when emergency brake is applied?

The light on the dash that says the emergency brake light is on could have burned out if it does not light up when the emergency brake is actually on. In some vehicles, this light will not light up until the car is put into gear to warn the driver that the emergency brake is still on.
