Try checking the switch in the hand lever itself. Sometimes it can get a piece of trash stuck in it.or it can be worn out.
On a 93 escort the parking brake light also doubles as a low brake fluid warning light. It may be the same with a 2001. So you could have a leak somewhere.
From the 1996 owners manual (which probably also applies to your '95): This light functions for both the parking brake and the foot brake systems. The light comes on when the parking brake is applied, and also warns of a low brake fluid level. If the light comes on while the engine is running with the parking brake not applied, stop the vehicle and perform the following: 1. Check the brake fluid level. Add brake fluid as necessary. See ''Brake fluid'' in the ''Do-it-yourself operations'' section. 2. If the brake fluid level is correct, check the warning system.
Warning Light for Parking [Emergency] BrakeUsually, the cause for this is that the switch used to sense the position of the Parking brake lever is either out of adjustment, or the contacts within the switch are stuck together.The switches are usually operated by a "plunger" pin which is spring loaded. When the Parking Brake is applied, it presses the plunger in, closing the switch, and causing the light to turn on.When the Parking Brake is "OFF, an internal [usually] spring pushes the plunger "out," opening the warning light circuit and thus turning the light off.Occasionally on some vehicles, this is just backwards, IE, plunger "in" turns light on, and plunger "out" turns light off.You will have to analyze the operation of your Parking Brake in relation to when the light is on or off compared to the brake lever position.The switch is "adjusted" by moving it closer or farther away from the arm that pushes the plunger pin in, or allows it to move out.
Park brake light - might mean the e-brake pedal is slightly moved down to initiate light. Battery light - means the alternator is bad or battery bad etc. Parking brake light also comes on when the brake fluid runs low... This happened on a 2003 kia Rio the next day the car died it is either because of a bad battery, alternator or alternator fuse
IS it the BRAKE LIGHT or the Parking Brake Light? If it is the BRAKE LIGHT, then your pedal must be going down far enough to hit a sensor that sets off the brake light to tell you your brakes need serviced. Normally this means you are low on brake fluid. If you are low on brake fluid FIND OUT WHY! You may have excessive brake pad wear, or a leaking brake cylinder, or your master cylinder may be going out. If you keep pumping the brakes and then stand on it hard, feel for the pedal to eventually go soft, if it does, then normally the seals in the master cylinder are going out. If you pump the brakes and the pedal never gets hard, then you have a serious brake fluid leak. If the Parkign Brake light stays on, then your parking brake is not fully releasing, at least where the contacts are to remind you it is on. This can be adjusted.
That light is for the emergency parking brake. It's to let you know that the brake is still engaged. If you don't use the brake or if it's fully disengaged, to your knowledge, it could mean one of two things. The first it, that the brake is not fully disengaged and is partially hung up, which would wear your brakes faster and also cause you to drive slower with the same force you would usually. You might feel that slightly. The other is that the sensor for the parking brake is faulty and needs to be replaced. Either way, the price for them both would be possibly $150-$300 for repair in my estimation.
The abs light is a separate system from the brakes.. I know that sounds funny but the abs system is after the break system. Your brakes will still work if the abs is inop. The brake light is usually a fluid level indicator in the master cylinder, not a light to tell you to replace the pads or shoes. I would look for a fluid leak or a problem with the parking brake.
