Parking Brake light
I got my 2006 Wrangler back yesterday from getting some front axle work done. Now the parking brake light won't go off on the dash. I used a friend of a friend and he claims the light was on when he first got in it to move it. I've checked the brake fluid and it is good, I took the console off and tried to adjust the little tab/ground piece that opens the circuit when you put the parking brake lever down and causes the light to go off. I also moved this tab around while there and the light never would go off. I've searched for leaks and can't find any but didn't expect any since the fluid was good. For giggles I also disconnected the battery and ran OBD II tests but got nothing on either. The Jeep seems to be stopping just fine so I am baffled here. It would be bad enough if the light were staying on, but it also beeps at me for about 5 seconds any time I stop for more than 5 seconds. It is set up to give a reminder each time you take off because it thinks the parking brake is on. So basically there is no driving it right now as that beeping noise sends me over my limits. I have searched online and everybody says to check the fluid, look for leaks, adjust the tab in the console. Well I did and I got no results?

I read on this site too where several YJ owners have this problem but I can't find anything for a TJ
If anybody knows what this could be, PLEASE HELP as it is driving me CRAZY!!!

I forgot to add that it does have the D44 rear with disks. Not sure what that would matter but it might??? The parking brake is not dragging either.
