If your talking about the light on the dash staying on, check your brake fluid, I bet its low.

Hmm, a bad wire maybe. When the e brake is disengaged it may not be turning off the light.

Glad to be of help. Jiffy lube is not a reliable place....

I'm starting to realize that, I've been twice and now that I think of it both times they've forgotten to fill the brake fluid

You shouldn't need to fill your brake fluid wert all. If you're losing fluid it is important to find where you are losing it from and fix it.

Re: Emergency brake light

could be a loose hose, do you ever smell burning fluid from your car or see any puddles?
