Since I got the Jeep, the brake light has been on. The owner didn't know what it was. I googled around and could not find anything really related to my problem. Can anyone help?
If it's the dash brake light, it's either that the e-brake switch is stuck or a problem with the master cylinder. If you have the proper amount of fluid in the master cylinder and your brakes are working fine then I would say check the switch at your e-brake, it just might be stuck.
there is a recall on yj e brake pedal installation. it is vin specific and u can call 877IAMJEEP to get a lot of history specific to your buggy. Try releasing and lifting the E-brake pedal with your toe does the light go out?

i have the same issue. i have done brakes from and rear including wheel cylinders, pads,rotors,drums, bleed the system. i also had the e brake recall taken care of about 2 months ago. and my fluid is good, nice and clean and full.
where is this switch on the master cylinder?
i wanna fix it not just pull the bulb
Remove the wire from the switch, see if light goes out. If it does then replace the switch if not then check wire for breaks in the insulation or missing insulation they could be touching metal and causing the light to come on.
