Buick Rendezvous 2002 Buick rendezvous, emergency brake light

Customer Question

2002 Buick rendezvous, emergency brake light comes on and it says check gage & alarm sound while driving. stopping and turning the car off and back on may cause it to stay off for 20 miles or in may come back on after only a few seconds. the later is the more common. I have tested the switch on the parking brake and it is working OK. My brakes are not that old. Ever since I have bought the vehicle, I have had the ABS & Anti lock lights on. I have taken it to fix to several places and even to GM and after they chage me an arm & a leg, the light comes rite back on. I don't have a problem driving with my dashboard looking like a xmas tree, but the emergency brake light has a loud sound & it's driving me crazy while driving like that. How can I fix this?
