    I would guess loose cable and rust causing an closed switch... light on. When is the last time you had your e-brake adjusted?

    Well, hold on. I'm sure someone smarter than me will be along any minute and solve this. Best of luck.

    How's your brake fluid level? Mine comes on when it gets low.

    Especially if your e-brake handle is going all the way back in when released

    ^Yep. That light is also the one to indicate something's up with the brakes.
