If releasing the emergency brake doesn't make the light go off it means that the pressure on one side of the brake system is lower than on the other.
There are a couple reasons this could happen:
There could be a leak in one part of the system, making it impossible to hold pressure
The hydraulic fluid could be low
Cars with antilock brakes have an amber or yellow warning light, which usually says ABS. If this light stays illuminated after the bulb check, it indicates a problem with the antilock braking system. The ABS controller will disable the system and your brakes should function as if you don't have ABS. In this case, you can safely drive the car to a mechanic for service.
