Emergency brake light not working sometimes!!

The Emergency brake light on my 1999 Ford Taurus SE sometimes will not light up when the emergency brake in engaged. Could this be a low brake fluid level problem or is it just stubborn?? It seems that when I release the brake and push it in again, the light will go on.

cool Re: Emergency brake light not working sometimes!!

Sound like a bad parking brake switch. It has one wire on it and is on the parking brake pedal assy.

You can do it. I think its held in by one bolt or just clips in.
