    My 99 Tacoma parking brake light stays on full-time. The parking brake switch was replaced and that did not fix the problem. What else can make this light stay on all the time.

    Thanks

    Low brake fluid level will cause your light to be on which also means your in a probability that your brake pads and/or shoes maybe worn as well. Check your fluid level first.

    The fluid leve is good too. I thought maybe the fluid level sensor may be bad, I basically disconnected the conector and jumpered it and the light stayed on. Is there a brake pad wear sensor?
    Thanks

    I don't believe there is one for a '99. Not sure what else would cause the light to be on.

    Thanks for the replies. I will keep on looking, if I can figure the problem out I'll post the fix action on here.

    Grab the parking brake pedal make sure its all the way up. Then grab the cables at the rear and wiggle them and check for break in the casing that water could have gotten in. Cables could be sticking
