    Hey,

    I have a loose ebrake on my 2003 tacoma. When I release the brake and put it in; the brake light stays on. If I push it in and hold it the light goes off; but otherwise it wiggles back and the light goes on....

    Any ideas what I could do / what I need to do to fix it?

    Had the same problem years ago
    The cable that attaches to the lever and runs underneath the truck just got rusty or gunked up. and the springs underneath the truck were no longer strong enough to pull it back all the way.
    had to replace that cable , and worked fine after that
