The dash brake warning light is on and I have checked the brakes and they are fine. Does anyone know what I should do to reset this light? All brakes including emergency brake are fine. Is there a switch somewhere? Any help is appreciated. Thank You.

This light indicates that the emergency brake handle is set. Try completely engaging the e-brake handle and then locking it back down. If the light remains on, the sensor connected to the e-brake handle has probably failed and needs replaced or cleaning.

Oh okay, sorry about that. The yellow light is a brake pad replacement reminder. It is there to let you know the brake pads are getting a little low. If the pads are not getting low then the sensor on one of the brakes may have failed. You can just disconnect your vehicle's battery for 10 - 15 minutes to reset the light. If it comes back then you may want to inspect your brake pads again or inspect the sensors and replace the faulty one.
