Answers :

The CEL means that the car's computer has detected an error in one of the car's systems. For cars of model years 1996 and later there is a standard connector in the car and you can hook up an OBD-2 code scanner to read the error code from the car's computer. However, for cars sold before 1996, there is no standard, so your best bet is to take the car to a mechanic who has experience with your make and model.

One thing you can try, to turn the light off, is disconnect your car's battery terminals for a few minutes. The CEL should be off when you restart the car. If the CEL stays off, then you're ok, because it may have come on due to a temporary condition somehow related to your parking brake, and the condition is resolved. However, if the CEL stays on or comes back on, this means you have a "hard" error code that definitely needs to be checked out.

In my opinion, although it is possible that the CEL and the parking brake are related, most likely it is just a coincidence that the CEL came on shortly afterward, and there is another cause for the CEL, that should be investigated.

Good luck and let me know if you have any questions.
