e-break light stuck on?

I have a 2000 prelude and the e-break light is stuck on even when the break is released.

I've checked the break fluids, they're OK and my breaks don't feel any different when I step on them. I've checked my breaks with Fountain Tire about a month ago and they said the pads were at 70%... I'm wondering if it's electrical?

Any ideas?

There's a sensor under your e break cover that contacts metal when you have it pulled up. Maybe its stuck? Had the same problem on my DC2.

It's either the master cyl cap shorted or something may have fallen into the hand brake lever area (like coins) and shorted the switch.
Most likely its a short in the cap. Not uncommon on your prelude. Unplug the 2 wires connected to the master cylinder cap and see if it goes out.
