My E-brake light is on even when not engaged.
I hear the noise when I apply the brake when driving. Sounds like metal on metal. Going to replace the drums and brake asap. But why would the E-brake light stay on?
Do you
have the same problem?

Check your brake fluid level. The light will be on if you are low on fluid.

My brake light came off when I put more fluid in but I'm still getting that grinding sound. Do you think it may take a few miles of braking around town?
