Remove the boot that goes over the handle of the parking brakes.Towards the back of the handle by the ash tray is the parking brake switch.You might have to remove the whole center console the one between the seats to see it better.That switch is fasten with two screws and either it's loose or one of the screws is missing.During hard accelaration the switch moves and grounds out to nearby metal causing your parking brake light to go on.

when I launch my car at about 3500rpms and dump the clutch, I get some wheel hop and see the parking light go on for a bit, anyone know whats going on? is it because of my wheel hop?
