Parking Brake Lite On - But Brake is OFF

I posted here earlier this week with problems with my HWH leveling system not working. After emergency repairs were made in North Carolina by blocking off the Dump Switch air line, I was able to air up my air bags and get underway. I made it back home to Texas today.

My Leveling Jacks still do not work, but I think it may be related to the Emergency/Park Brake Switch on the dash board. Now the "Park Brake" light is on, but when I push and pull the big Yellow Switch Handle on the dash to engage and disengage the Park Brake, my brakes work just fine.
The "Jacks Down" light is dimly light on the dash as well.

After reading many previous posts in the Forum, I see where the problem may be a defective or missing "Ground" from the brake switch to my Leveling System Touch Panel, or Control Box.
Any suggestions from any of you?
Thanks in advance.....

If your parking brakes are operated by a foot pedal.. Check the switch (it's on the bracket below the dash) Handle (pull or lift) you will have to find the switch.

Auto-park.. I can't help you.
Home is where I park it!
