In that year Civic you should check your brake fluid. The e-brake light comes on when the fluid is low in that car.

I installed a new master cylinder and all new brake fluid, the light still stayed "On." Then did a continuity check on the new factory float switch. The sensor will not turn "Off" the dash indicator light until the float is well above the "maximum brake fluid level line." Solution: A plastic zip-tie placed around the float shaft to hold the float up to the bottom of the reservoir cap.

all above answers are right except logan's.... hes just being a __________ "insert adjetive"

on the actual lever, there is also a switch that is triggered when you raise it

move the center console and determine if it broke... easy to tell since it has a little arm that triggers it
