Brake Warning Lights

My '08 has had brake system warnings on for a little while. According to the selection of symbols, it is apparently related to the 'hill start' feature. Occasionally, the lights are off, but come on as soon as I begin driving. The only operational effect is that stability control is off.

It seemed to occur shortly after changing the front dampers. And I noticed the bracket on the inside of the driver's side damper was rotated inboard (I didn't get it properly re-positioned against the housing), and the swaybar link was rubbing a little against the cable/wire housings that pass through the bracket. I have since repositioned the bracket and regained clearance, but the lights are still on.

Is it possible, one of the wires was fractured inside its housing?

A system check revealed no codes for brake system failures.

What are you using to check for codes? If there are warnings on the dash then there will certainly be an issue logged somewhere.

I had the codes checked by a local business. I will have them run another test.
