Default E Brake Light won't go off

This just started recently. We would release the E brake and the light would stay on. Pull the brake a little and then back off and the light would go out. Did that several times. Now it won't go off at all.

Sticky or bad switch? Brake is off I tested that. The car won't move with it on and is fine when off but the light still glows.

Check inside the console to see if something is stuck or interfering with the switch.

if you are good at working on things, you should be able to figure out the problem pretty easily. this is what the switch consists of.

I had the timing belt replaced by my mechanic the other day and I was talking to him about the ebrake light and he noticed it too. So he checked the brake fluid and it was low. The light went off!! Learn something new every day.
