my brake light is always on and from what i can see, it doesn't seem to be an electrical problem, i have my rear wheels off and i want to know how i can tell if they're engaged by looking and feeling them, the from brakes are in good working condition so i dont think it can be that. i need help

Just spin them and see what kind of drag they have. And when you bleed, you should bleed farthest away and work your way to the closest.

If the rear brakes are dragging, the wheel will feel hot to the touch after driving for a while. Feel near the lug nuts after driving at highway speed, it will be too hot to touch if they're dragging.

It may be the parking brake switch which is the problem, though.

if the dash light is on it means your e-brake switch is messed up, or your master cylinder is low on fluid. Check the fluid level

Are you sure you are putting the lever all the way down? Check were the lever is and see if something is stuck on the button or something. Check the master cylinder, you might be tripping the low level sensor.
