Question Brake light?

I own a 07 335i. Ok now my brake light in my instrument cluster will not turn off. Brakes are good, emergency brake is not engaged, everything is in working order. I went thru the proper steps to reprogram nothing. When i get in insert key an when i kill the car the symbol with the car jacked up in red appears and brake light. All bulbs are good this is very aggervating I love this site e90 rocks. Any suggestions would be helpful. Could it be ther is a ground under center consule has come loose for the emergency brake? Had this problem in my 91 325i / with m50 conversion. Thanks guys

Likely due to the sensors. I had the same problem where the brakes nowhere close in being worn out but the sensor just triggered the error (the front sensor). Fortunately the sensors themselves aren't expensive so I just bought a pair and that fixed it.

If the brake pad sensors are worn out you should see service front and/or rear brakes warning. See service menu if brake service is due (sensors worn). There are three brake service bullets, front pads, rear pads and fluid.
