    s10 Ebrake light stays on

    just starting last night my E brake light on my 95 s10 came one going off every now and then now it is on all the time and driving me nuts the cables aren't sticking or anything the brake actually releases and returns to its position any ideas?

    then check your brakes, possible the pads are low or the shoes are out of adjustment..

    explain to me how having a tablespoon of brake fluid fixed this?

    p.s. my roomate's S10, 94, has the same issue. he just doesn't care about ti enough to fix it since it's his winter beater s10.

    it turned out to be a pin hole in the brake line that turned into a big hole in the brake line
