Yeah, if you remove your center console - or at least the part under the shifter, you will see a part of the wiring harness with a plug that goes to (or near) the e-brake mechanism. Take a look at the plug, unplug it, spray it with some electrical contact cleaner, and maker sure it is securely mounted and no wires are messed up. If that plug is malfunctioning, it would definitely light your ebrake light and may even cause your advance trac light to come on.

Look at the photos I posted in this thread for an idea of what Im talking about:
