Question accelerate..e-brake lights come on...

Hi guys I got a quick question..today while I was driving I noticed that when I accelerate fairly aggressively the e-break lights come on for a few seconds even when the e-brake is all the way down..the e-brake lever does feel kinda loose when I park and pull on the lever..not as firm as when I first got the car..any input on what can be the problem and how to fix this guys? thanks alot

remove centre console, check for switch operation and connections, adjust the rear drums and tighten the leveler bar.

I'm in no means a car expert but that light comes on when your brake fluid is low as well. It might be that simple!

im no expert but what does the e brake have to do with your front brakes???? the connections are probably just loose or your lever is too loose.

your e-brake has nothing to do with your front brakes.

If the brake light comes on 8/10 its low brake fluid.

there are two wires on the brake fluid cap, those check the level of your fluid, when the fluid is low... they needed a dash light to come on... so what other light would be better to use than the ebrake light??

thou shalt read thy owners manual.
