Hmm, @bobvanhouten. So, your brake light comes on. You tried unplugging the parking brake switch, you checked the brake fluid level…and nothing changes with that light. it happens sometimes when the car has just been sitting, and the brakes weren’t being used. Your thinking is - maybe the cluster is bad. Is that accurate?

I think the warning light is turned on by a switch making a ground connection. If the emergency brake is tied to that light or the ABS system then those things need to be checked out for a problem. It seems that some wire is getting to ground somehow and shouldn’t be. If you don’t have a factory manual for the wiring it would be a good time to purchase one. Ebay is a good place to find one for a reasonable price.
