The parking brake light switch could be sticking or malfuntioning.

To get to the switch you need to remove the center console. You'll then see the switch near the back of the parking brake handle.


If your low on brake fluid and/or brake pads are worn, it'll also trigger the brake light. Check this first before checking the parking brake light switch.

Problem solved..
Just drove around the GSP for a little while and the light went out by itself.. i think it was stuck.. so just disengage the brake and drive around.. make sure you use the brake alot.. get it warm and it should go away
