Dear all,
When I release the parking brake the red Brake bulb does not go off and when I start rolling I receive the "Release Brake" alarm. I got it measured and the parking brake is released (car does not brake when rolling) but the switch is stacked...
The question is: Where is this switch located? (i have some schematics from detali.ru...) Has anyone experienced such a thing before?
What could I do to stop heal this?
Thank you all...

The parking brake switch is mounted on the pedal ass:

Maybe you have too much free polay in the cable, and the slack needs taking up

do also check the brake fluid level as, from memory, its the same light that warns of low fluid

Thank you for the responses...
I managed to find the cause of the problem...
The parking brake switch was out of its position so there was no contact when parking brake was released..
