Default parking brake light

2007 Ion 3, 2.4 auto. Anyone had pronlems with the parking brake light staying on after releasing the parking brake, shoes are not sticking, brake is not dragging, not frozen, only 5000 kms on the car. Shut the car off and restart and it goes away. Any ideas?

Sounds like it is a e-brake warning light switch. Its park of the e-brake mechanism. Should be easyish to replace, depending on what you know. But is sounds like the switch is getting stuck.

Isn't the vehicle still in warranty? I would just take it in, I didn't see that it resets the light when you turn it off. It still may be the switch, but it is a good possiblity its another electrical issue.

your car is still covered, and even if you went to the local part's store, and it was the switch it still wouldn't be worth your time or money, just go to the dealership.

+1... use your warranty to your advantage. If anything looks even remotely wrong take it to them, and they will replace it... GM could use the work right about now. And I know they will replace it with a new part, because I work for VW and I do parts, and I know how warranty works.
