    Try crawling up under your dash where the brake pedal is at up inside there is a little copper switch that is a ground for the parking lite insure that its not making contact when the brake is disengaged and it should turn off! My truck failed inspection for that reason last year. hope this helps.

    Try using your left foot to pull the pedal up while you pull the release handle. Of course, you could actually have a problem such as a leak.
