I have an 08 IC CE300, DT466 with hydraulic brakes. Bus is running fine no other issues except the Brake pressure light stays on for a few seconds with initial start up. Now the service parking brake light is coming on when I am releasing the parking brake, it doesn't come on all the time just occasionally. Any help / advice with what to look for would be appreciated.

Brake pressure light at start up is normal but goes off after the HCU reaches adequate pressures, front and rear. Do you have access to TOOLBOX software? If you hold the park brake in too long the service (P) will come on. look at the SAHR canister on the drivers frame rail near the rear axle and see if the solenoid looks severely rusted. They have updated the part to a heavier duty solenoid. Also in the SAHR the travel switch becomes very corroded.
