E-brake light wont go out!!!

So there I was......

I have a 99 TJ and the e-brake light will not go out. I was told that the switch under the center console was probably bad so 8 bucks later....it's still on. I checked to ensure it engages and dis-engages proper but the light is still on.
So I call to you Jeep mechanics out there to steer me in the right direction. What should be checked next? Also....I bled all of the brake lines out which fixed the soft peddle but not the light. Didn't think that would do anything for the light but the soft peddle had to go.

Help is greatly appreciated.

First and simplest, check your brake fluid level. some vehicles have a sensor in the brake master cylinder that will trigger the light to come on when the fluid is low. Next, I suggest checking your brakes, front and rear. Sometimes a worn out pad or set of shoes will cause the light to come on, and depending on when it was done last, it might need done anyway. You can also try to bleed the brake system again.
