    The switch is just a steel cable with electronics around it. So where would you put the multimeter at.

There is a problem with the switch on your parking brake. my suggestion is, disassemble the switch and test with a multimeter if it's busted then replace it or repair the switch if you can.

There is a pressure switch, that gets depressed or released due to pedal position. When you engage the PB the arm is depressed...releasing the pin-like pressure switch.

Examine the pedal itself...looking where it 'touches' the car.
Depress the pedal....while watching this place. Look for a 'pin-like' switch that is allowed to extend when the parking brake is engaged, and that would be depressed in when the arm is released/disengaged.

Once you have found this, it is likely that either the:

  1. arm is slightly misaligned and does not depress the button..ie. the light stays on
  2. if it is lined up...then perhaps it does not depress the button far enough...press it to see if they light now goes out
  3. once you confirm that the light will go out..then you can adjust the physical location of the switch so that the brake pedal arm, more fully engages it
If you need other help on this, just ask...ask there are a few other solutions..but this is most likely the cause, and is a reasonably easy fix

it's not hard, but you could set off the air bag. disconnect the battery, pump the brake a couple times to remove any stray voltage, then remove the steering wheel to access the switch. or you could (by hand) twist a drywall screw into the broken switch and shut it off that way.still broken but no longer active

EMERGENCY BRAKE LIGHT WON'T GO OFF


Not sure what model vehicle you have. Look at the emergency brake pedal, and see if it is supposed to hit a switch when the pedal is released - it may be the switch it out of adjustment and needs adjusted.

Have someone watch the light while you run your finger along the entire length of the pedal to see if the light goes out when you hit the switch. This assumes the issue is mechanical.

Brake light stays on


The emergency brake cable could have stuck on enough to make the light stay on. Sometimes a little lubricant on the cables might help. Try setting and releasing the emergency brake a couple of times. I have even had to get under the car and tap the brake cable to release it fully.

My emergency brake cable broke on my 95/96 chevy s-10. we are trying to figure out how to release the emergency brake so that i can drive the car home.


I'm confused if cable is broken how are brakes locked? The cable should go to the rear wheels. At one point somewhere under the car you should be able to find cable and release it around the middle of truck. The cable should pass some kind of pre-tensioner. Hope this helps.

Sounds like a likely possibility, the reverse method definetly did the trick in loosening the brake, but it may still be slightly applied, put it in a warm place when you can, or have a shop look at it indoors, it may need to be re-adjusted, or even just warmed up until the cable frees up again
