I "fixed" mine by entering the instrument cluster and jumpering two 
wires inside one of the electrical connectors where it attaches to 
the IC.  If you want specifics I'll hafta go back inside and tell you 
which wires and which connector are involved.  Of course such a fix 
requires that the driver assume responsibility for checking the 
brakes every now and then.
