Default "E-Brake Light Always On"

2000 Impala LS but I installed another cluster from a 01 Monte Carlo.. Baffled as to why the E-Break light is always on.. I put the original cluster in and it is off.. Any thoughts suggestions..


Thank you in advance...

the manual doesnt say anything about the different clusters, they mostly talk to the pcm via the serial network so the connections may be the same. the few things that dont go to the pcm dont have anything to do with the brake. i think if it was mine i would take it apart and desolder the led

Just in case the problem is not in the cluster, did you check the little plunger switch located at the top of the E-brake pedal. If it is out of position the E-brake light would be constantly on.

I read that as well, but don't want to overlook the possible simple solution.
