BRAKE light wont go off

so i was out at the desert over new years and one day out on the trail i got going and realized my parking brake wasnt all the way down. i was only goin for a few seconds so i thought it would be fine but the brake light didnt go off. i read in the manual and found it said that the light staying on could mean the brake fluid is low or the systems presure could be low. the fliud is just above the full line and the pedal is as firm as always. so ive reset the battery didnt help before i take it into the stealership and take a beating i was wondering if anyone else has had this happen and if so how they fixed it? thanks

Liquid does funny things to electrical circuits. I don't know where the switch is located but if the jeep is out of warranty, I would be checking this myself it were mine.
