    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    not crazy. If you down shifted so hard the car chirped, or slammed the brakes and came to a screetching halt, both of those lights will stay on until you turn off your car. It's like the car's way of yelling at you to NOT DO THAT! b/c if you loose traction-you could get killed. nothign to worry about though. Not a sensor/computer or anything.

    it's never stayed on either...

    the funny thing is that i had just had dropped my son at daycare so i was driving sane! the sensor thing could be because the breaks had just been replaced just before i got the car......thanks guys for the feedback it is helping for sure
