Parking brake light

My parking brake light comes on (or flickers on and off) when I'm going down a steep decline...when I hit the flats it goes out w/i 30 seconds. Not a terribly big deal but anyone have any ideas as to what might be causing this to happen...or how I can fix it?

Thx

Mike

hmm. thats there for a reason, you wouldnt say take the bulb out for the check engine light or low oil pressure? also it could be the parking break needing adjustment, I am not to certain about that although it has been disccussed in the past.

While Phil makes a good point about the brake fluid I too had this problem, but it turned out that the wire on the hand brake sensor-switch was almost severed. Remove the rubber boot on the hand brake and check to see if the conncection is still in good shape.
