    You'll need to check your pads....see if they need replaced....OR

    Sometimes the handbrake gaitor (leather cover thingy) can stop the handbrake going all the way down, which leaves the light on. To check that push the handbrake all the down to hopefully make the light go out.
    If that is the case, then try and re-seat the gaitor to allow the handbrake to stay down..
