How do I replace the parking pawl on my 1998 sebring


The Parking Pawl is internal of the Transmission and the Transmission must be removed to do this repair. Someone put the car into PARK when it was not at a COMPLETE STOP.

The Parking Brake can be adjusted or you can have the REAR BRAKES redone and have them properly adjust the Parking Brakes.

How do I check if my parking brake is on? How do I bleed my rear brakes?


No. The brakes don't need to be bled unless you took a brake line off. Check the owners manual on how to set and release the parking brake.

Got this info from automotiveforums.com:
If it has rear disk brakes, the park brake shoes need to be adjusted, they are inside the rear rotors. The shoes are probably worn and in need of replacement. If they are ok, adjust the shoes. There may be a adjuster on the cable, follow it from the ft to rear, usually about halfway down the frame on the drivers side.

The rotors must be removed, and the park cable disconnected from the equalizer before adjusting the park brake shoes. After the rotor is removed, there is a star wheel that is rotated to adjust the shoes so there is a very slight drag. Reinstall the rotors and connect the cable back to the equalizer. Adjust the equalizer so the park brake holds the vehicle when pushed half way down.

The equalizer is where both rear cables attach to the front cable. There is an adjusting nut that is turned to adjust park brake pedal height. The equalizer is located directly below the driver seat, under the vehicle. Make sure you use lots of PB Blaster and or heat before you try to adjust the nut. If it twists off, you'll need a new cable. Scroll down this page and there is an image similar to what you have on your vehicle: http://www.justanswer.com/chevy/3xmde-parking-break-cable-broke-brake-on-how.html

97elantra shifter stuck in park but when useing the override button it will move but car takes off in drive


Sounds like to me you may need to have the nuetral safety switch adjusted or replaced. This switch will allow a vehicle to start only if the gear shifter is in the park or nuetral position if it starts in any other gear it may need to be adjusted or replaced hope this helps you.

How to adjust parking brake. do you need to take anything apart?


You cannot adjust the cables on a minivan manually. the tension is automaitcally adjusted by the self adjuster on the pedal release.

The park brake cables on this vehicle have an automatic self adjuster built into the park brake pedal mechanism. When the foot operated park brake pedal is in its released (upward most) position, a clock spring automatically adjusts the park brake cables. The park brake cables are adjusted (tensioned) just enough to remove all the slack from the cables. The automatic adjuster system will not over adjust the cables causing rear brake drag.

Due to the automatic adjust feature of the park brake pedal, adjustment of the parking brake cables on these vehicles relies on proper drum brake.

When the park brake pedal is applied the self adjuster is by-passed and the pedal operates normally to engage the park brakes.

When a service procedure needs to be performed on the park brake pedal or the park brake cables, the automatic self adjuster can be manually locked out by the service technician.

How do I adjust the emergency brake on a 2004 GMC 2500 HD with disc brakes


There's a couple things to check. Your truck may need the cable adjusted underneath the car, but most likely the pads are getting low and the low park brake response is usually an indicator that the pads need replacement... If the pads are low , then replacing them will bring the park brake back to proper level.
If not, the adjustment can be made under the truck on the cabling..

It will not go into park the gear shift cloumn does not goes into park


If the vehile is actually in park but the indicator does not point to park, then it needs adjusting. If the indicator is correct in all other gears but park, then the cable that links the shifter to the indicator needs replaced. If it is not accurate in any gears, then either the cable needs replaced or the shift linkage needs to be adjusted.

Hope this helps. This is out of the factory manual. Let me know if this works for you.
PARKING BRAKE NOTE: Tensioner adjustment is only necessary when the tensioner, or a cable has been replaced or disconnected for service. When adjustment is necessary, perform adjustment only as described in the following procedure. This is necessary to avoid faulty park brake operation.
  1. Raise vehicle.
  2. Fully back off cable tensioner adjusting nut at equalizer to create slack in cables.
  3. Remove rear wheel/tire assemblies. Remove brake calipers and rotors.
  4. Verify park brakes are in good condition and operating properly.
  5. Verify park brake cables operate freely and are not binding, or seized.
  6. Check park brake shoe adjustment.
  7. Reinstall rotors and make sure rotors turn freely.
  8. Reinstall brake calipers. Tighten guide pin bolts to 41 n·m (30 ft.lbs.)
  9. Reinstall wheel/tire assemblies after brake shoe adjustment is complete.
  10. Lower vehicle enough for access to park brake foot pedal. Fully apply park brakes

Car wont shift out of park and blower motor quit.


Fuse #23 controls the turn signals, heater blower, reverse lamps, and the shift lever solenoid. There is a hole in the right side of the console where you can poke around with a ball point pen and unlock the shift lever. The fuse is located in a panel behind the glove box. I took my car to a dealer and had them change the fuse, but the ball point pen trick will save you a tow job.
