SOURCE: emergency brake wont release on 1997 chevy astro

You will have to manually release it. First make sure that your handle is still attached to the rod since these do sometimes have a tendency to brake, if it is broke, you just have to pull the rod by hand. If it's still intact, you will have to follow the rod to where it connects to the cables and once again, manually pull it by hand. You might have to actually follow it all the way to the back axle from underneath where the connections are made to apply pressure to set and release and make sure there isn't anything broke there. Worst case is that when you last set your e-brake, it broke inside the drums and you will have to rebuild. Hope this helps some. Good luck!

SOURCE: parking brake is stuck on

need to get the truck on jack stands remove the wheels and if the truck has drums you maybe able to use some PB blast because the brake cables are rusted for the emergency brakes and at the same time you can check out the condition of your shoes or pads if you get any oil on the shoes or pads use brake cleaner to clean them off

SOURCE: 2000 blazer parking release handle broken

You will have to look under the side panel, and you can release it with a screw driver, or get a pair of vise grips to pull the cable to release it.

SOURCE: 1997 oldsmobile bravada making clunking

the vehicle has to be put on a hoist. turn the driveshaft that goes to the rear wheels,it is driven by a transfer case that is almost in the middle of the vehicle,just rearward of the transmission.
if the noise comes from the transfer case,then that is the problem.
the drive shafts for the rear have universal joints which can develop play and give the same clunk.
if it is the transfer case,it needs to have a gear replaced.
always warm up the vehicle for enough time for the engine to come down to 1000rpm before putting in drive,the fast idle is over 2000rpm,and puts alot of stress on the drive components,and over time wear them prematurely.

1997 oldsmobile cutlass stuck in park until car warms up


There is a safety switch inside the gearshift assy. (below where you shift the gear handle) this safety switch locks the gearshifter in park until you press the brake pedal. pressing the brake pedal is supposed to release it. obviously it's not, so there's soda, coffee, or other substances making it sticky, or it could be just worn out. Take the cover plate off & look for this plastic piece attached to a cable(covered in black plastic) if it needs cleaning, use alot of warm water & a shop-vacuum. if cleaning doesn't help, then replace the cable (may be part of the shifter mechanism.)

I had the same thing. just remove the cover from under the steering wheel and you can see the ratchet release lever. You can also remove the metal cover that is under the plastic cover for more visibility. now just reach in with a bit of stiff wire with a hook on the end and pull the lever back to you. that is all the cable does, and voila, the brake is released. now you just have to remember not to push it down again (I did!)

Burnt smell from rear wheel well on 99 bravada after driving


Could be a stuck parking brake or a leaking wheel seal letting gear oil onto brakes. look at inside of rear wheels, if you see wet oil on backing plates, it's the seal. and nees to be replaced.

Shifter will not shift out of park


Sounds like you have a ground or othere electrical problem. The interlock solenoid uses a separate switch from the brake lights. Double check all of your connections, make sure that the grounds are all good, including the battery-chassis ground.

After replacing the gear shift cable on my Oldsmobile Bravada the key will not come all the way back to the lock position and the battery light stays on.


im not sure what linkage you replaced cause it is electronic. if key is stuck in acc. posision the problem is the ignition switch. the reason i say this is cause when you turn the key it elec. releases the shifter and when the switch gos bad it does not. a new ignition switch should be purchaced from a gm dealer.until fixed you will have to disconnect batt. every time until fixed and i would also use the park brake when not driving.
