False brake indication

I have a 2008 Allegro Bus..when hitting some bigger bumps while traveling, the buzzer and light comes on indicating emergency brake is on, what can I look for to remedy this?

Check the brake fluid level in the master cylinder.

Since this is an Allegro Bus, I'm assuming it's a DP with air brakes. If that's so, there is a pressure switch in the air control line that switches the parking brake warning off and on. More than likely it's a faulty switch or a bad connection.

Are you sure it's not the hydraulic jacks warning buzzer? Stiff bumps can wiggle a loose jack as well.

The jack(s) down warning light is in a different place (a single light low on the dash, not on the multi-display), and the warning sound is different (repeating, different frequency, not a single loud buzz), on our '06. If it's the same on the '08, that would make it difficult to mistake one for the other.

If the air pressure is normal, I'm with Lt. Dan on this one. Without knowing the details of the wiring, I'd look at the connections at the parking brake button and the low air pressure warning switch in addition to the one he suggested if the latter isn't the problem.
