Blinking e-brake light?

Came to a normal stop at the bottom of a hill and my ebrake light came on for a split second. Any idea what that means?

Check your brake fluid level.

Thats one of the things. Doubtful thats it since it didn't stay on but its somewhere to start.

mine wigs out on me all the time. Sometimes it won't even go on when i have the e-brake applied. Other times it'll stay on when i don't have the e-brake applied. sometimes it goes on and off. I'm thinking the sensor is going out or sticking or something but i don't worry about it.

same thing was happening to me. i found out the sensor for the ebrake pedal was gunked up. too took MAF cleaner (electronic cleaner) and sprayed out the whole mechanism. problem solved.
