As of lately, whenever I hit my brakes hard my parking brake light flashes on. Anyone experiencing anything like that?

that usually happens if you are low on brake fluid. When you slam on the brakes, the movement of the fluid bring the float down enough to trigger the brake light flashing which is "low brake fluid".

Moral: Make sure your brake fluid is not low.

This can also happen if all your pads are down to nothing which causes the calipers to extend out, which in turn uses more fluid, which causes the reservoir to run low.

Hope that helps :dunno:
