my brake light won't go off.

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Thank you for writing in. If you are referring to the brake warning light on your dashboard, there is likely an issue with the brake system. You will need to have the vehicle scanned for diagnostic codes to find out why the light is on. There may also be an issue with the emergency/parking brake. Only further inspection will tell. Good luck!
