In dash brake light wont turn off!

E-brake is off, brake fluid is full, no leaks, brake lines we're flushed and bleed. new brake pads and calipers. Light still will not go off!

Could be a bad fluid level sensor in the reservoir

Also check the parking brake switch if the battery disconnect doesn't re-set it. It's located on the parking brake lever.

the brake light would be blinking in drive if it were the Ebrake, I'm sure 6 speeds would as well. gotta be the reservoir.

instead of spending all that money on parts you could have just disconnected the switch and used a jumper to figure out if that was the problem
