Hello, 

Thank you for writing in. First we need to confirm that you are looking into the parking brake switch, which illuminates the parking brake light on your dashboard. If you are, the switch itself is located under the parking brake, and you will need to remove the floor console in order to access it. It is more likely that the switch would fail before its wiring did. Check the wiring connections going to that switch. That being said, your brake light may also stay illuminated if the brake fluid is low. Check your brake fluid level and condition as well.
