the handbrake light on my car is staying on all the time . on off or even if i unplug the cable from the switch unit, any body got any ideas as to whats up ? bad earth possibly? cheers chris

sounds like a bad earth or broken switch take the wire from the switch and connect it straight to the chassis to see if the light will go off

You do realise this is an indication of low brake fluid ??

 

 

true, he may have a better indication that this is the case as he'll often see the light flicker when the cars in motion, caused by the sensor intermitantlly being covered as the fluid sloshes about.

Indeed +1 i had experienced this few months back.

 

if this is the case you may want to check your wheel cylinders are still in one piece or that you have no leaks in you hoses
