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.

Why would parking brake light and battery light stay on in my 2003 Kia Sedona?

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

What would cause the emergency brake warning light in a 1995 Nissan Quest not show up in dashboard?

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.
