    sounds like a sensor got tripped. or a loose cable or wire.

    there is a indicator switch on the end of the brake handle (the end under the console) that can get sticky , mine stays on sometimes and i have to reapply the brake and puy it back down and it will go off. You might try cleaning that switch hope that helps, good luck

    As long as that light is ON it will let you drop the top. PERIOD. That light isn't just for the parking break. Its also a malfunction indicator light for the FLUID LEVEL. I bet if you top off your reservoir again, it'll go out. I don't see how bleeding your brakes will all of a sudden make the switch in the console stick. Thats like changing your tire and a headlight goes out.
