I've been having a minor problem with the Parking Brake indicator light
on my Gen 3. Every time I go over a speed bump (Not fast) or when accelerating fast after the light turns green, my Parking Brake Light blinks for a second then turns off. When I do put the PBrake on, The light works fine. I think I noticed that it seems to blink on speed bumps only after the front tires go over the bump, but it may happen with the back (I have not really paid attention to when it exactly did it).

If anyone has an idea on what could cause this, the help would be great and much appreciated.

There is a switch on the parking brake mounting bracket next to the pedal. The pedal might be a little loose, and hitting the switch. or the switch might be goin out. Just stick your head under the driver's side dash, and take a look.

I had this issue with my old nissan. Fluid was low. The brake light isnt just for parking break its also for other brake issues (e.g. fluid low).
