The emergency brake warning light comes on, and it beeps.

Customer Question
The emergency brake warning...

The emergency brake warning light comes on, and it beeps. The brakes work just fine.

Mechanic's Assistant: Oh No! Brake problems are the worst. The Pontiac Mechanic will know what to do. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

That is really all that is happening.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

If possible.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Pontiac Mechanic should know about your Pontiac?

No. Everything seems to be normal.
