Parking Brake Light Staying On, Help!

Greetings All! I am the proud owner of a slightly used but not abused 2015 Honda Pioneer 500 (36.4 hours)! It is awesome. I set the parking brake the other day, and now the light will not go off. I can move the machine back & forward by my hand, so I do not think the brake is engaged. The light will blink when the Honda is in motion. Look for your expertise. Thank you in advance for your help. GreenLaw

There is a switch on the park brake lever that could be bad or just dirty. You should be able to see it removing the panels under the seat.

I am hoping it is maybe a bad sensor or dirty connection. I will check it out. Thank you!

Okay, I had time to look into my Parking Light problem. I took out the seats, the access panel on the drivers side, and the whole panel on the Passenger side. Still not very much room to work with, though I could see where part of the parking brake assembly looked like it had moved and the sensor trigger had rotated away from the parking brake handle. I figured there must be a missing bolt. After some maneuvering I got the dislocated part back to line up with what appeared to be the bolt hole. I was attempting to replace the bolt and accidently dropped it, while looking for the dropped bolt, I found the original lost one (wedged in between some stuff). Therefore, I used the newly found original bolt and a new nut to secure the assembly back to where it must have been. Anyway, I adjusted the sensor trigger and success, no more parking light staying on. Hope this helps anybody that runs into the same problem. I know it is minor, but it worried me, especially since I just got the machine on Monday.
