I have a 2013 chrysler town and country... for some odd reason my embrace light illuminates and stays on if I hold my foot on the brake(brake peddle is also making a blowing or vacuum type sound while I press it) at let's say a traffic light. Brake booster good, check valve good, master cylinder good vacuum pump good. So what in the world could possibly be the problem...smh...

Help me plzzzzz.....

don't worry about this noise, this is normal

How's the fluid level in the master cylinder reservoir? The level will drop a bit when you press the brake pedal; that's normal. If the level is low from from heavy pad/rotor wear, the drop in fluid level when pressing the brake pedal can kick on the brake warning light.

Ok, but the brake warning light coming on when you press the brake pedal is pretty damning.

I would have someone press the brake pedal while you watch the reservoir. Just to rule it out.

Hissing when pressing the brakes usually means a leaking booster. Is the hissing happening the whole time you're on the pedal?

That's the booster then. It's rare for them to fail without brake fluid getting on them, so you should check your master cylinder for leaks too. If you see a wet spot under the master cylinder, that's a dead giveaway.

No wetspot under master cylinder

No, is not normal.

You probably need to recheck brake booster.

When you press it, not the whole time the pedal is down.
"pssh", not "pssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssh" :p
