Ok, if you have an emergency brake handle located by the drivers seat, next to the Transmission shifter. Sounds like it needs to be adjusted. You need to pull off the cover and there sould be a adjustment screw for it. I wouldn't adjust to much if you don't know what you are doing. Could result in the brake not working at all. But just turn it a few turns until the light goes off in either direction. Other than that I have no idea. If you have idiot lights. Like one for Emergency and one for just brakes.... Check the brake fluid. Sometimes the light will come on if the fluid is low. Hope that helps out some. Thanks for the advice! I added some brake fluid and replaced the brake light fuse (the #10 one). The problem vanished immediately and only cost me about $3, great! The screw may need adjusting too, but I didn't want to risk messing it up.

What does the Mitsubishi Montero owner's manual say about the brake light indicator staying on when the emergency brake is NOT in use?

If your vehicle has separate dash panel warning lights for brakes and emergency brakes, then the e-brake light being on while not engaged may indicate that the e-brake switch may be maladjusted or faulty. If the brake warning light is on, it may indicate a brake fluid leak, or in some cases, low brake fluid levels in the reservoir. If your vehicle has a shared warning light for e-brake and brake warning, all causes listed above could apply.
