I just finished the Painless wiring kit installation and have a few nagging issues I'm working on clearing up. The only one I haven't been able to figure out is getting the parking brake warning light on the dash to turn off.

I checked the switch at the parking brake first and unplugged it with no change... the light stays on.

Next, I checked the harness for the proportioning valve... its unused on my Jeep, just the empty harness under the hood.

If I understand correctly, the only other area is the ignition harness that is supposed to light up at startup to confirm correct operation of the light. It lights up with the key on. Goes off while cranking and turns back on with the engine running.

I suspect since the switch is ground operated that there must be some place that the circuit is grounding that it isn't supposed to be, causing the warning light to trigger.

Any thoughts? Am I missing something? Ideas as to where to look for the problem, short of a scraped wire?
