Check brake fluid level in master cylinder - low fluid level will illuminate that same light!

IF fluid level is low - add fluid as needed ➕ have ALL brakes checked for ware by a professional .. The fluid was low for a reason!

IF fluid level is ok - - It is possible a problem exists within the park brake mechanism including the switch - have a professional check this as well..

On RARE occasions - this can be the result of an instrument cluster malfunction .. I’ve had the privilege of encountering this ‘elusive’ issue..

Again - highly recommend *hands-on* professional assistance for anything other than possible low fluid level .. I think this pretty much covers all known possibilities..

Good luck!
