This is funny, I had the same problem too a couple of days ago. Fortunately the 92 deville has an automatic release when you put it in drive but sometimes the pedal doesnt come all the way up (just enough to trigger the brake light) so you have to reach down there and pull it up.

I had the issue with my 1992 deville, there is a pink(i believe) vacume hose that is connected to the parking brake assembly, possibly that hose is punctured and therefore isnt getting the pressure needed to release when it shifts into neutral. if u cut that hose and **** on it really hard it will release. i knew of the issue on mine but had a valet set the brake, although slightly uncomfortable and embarrassing, if you need to get somewhere that can be your only option. buying new vacume tubes is cheap. if that doesnt solve your problem you probably will end up replacing the whole assembly :(

FROM LUSTY KID:

Some cars release the emergency brake when you put them in drive, provided you have your foot on the brake first. naturally.

The other possibility, your brake cable is rusted or corroded inside the sleeve and is jammed so it will not release. You might need to replace the whole emergency cable.

I can't shift from parking to gear


You have to fully apply your regular brakes before you can shift from PARK (P) when the ignition key is in the RUN position. If you cannot shift out of PARK (P), ease pressure on the shift lever -- push the shift lever all the way into PARK (P) and also release the shift lever button on floor shift console models -- as you maintain brake application. Then move the shift lever into the gear you wish.

2006 ford sport trac will not shift out of park


Look under the dash, on the brake pedal arm. There are one or two switches that activate brake lights and/or shift unlock. Check for loose mounting nut or a missing rubber nubber. Is the brake pedal coming all the way back up? Look on the floor for something not usually found there. These switches are adjustable and it may be as simple as adjusting them. Have a helper look for brake lights on and shift lever unlocked while you push and release the switches with your finger. Depress the brake pedal to get it out of the way. Remember to set the park brake first. Could just be a bad switch or loose connector. Check fuses and the bulbs. Is shifter fully in Park? Also try jiggling the turn signal lever.

Loose park brake lever. Faulty switch. If the e-brake is on the left side floor, pull up on it and if light goes out it is loose e-brake lever. Other than that it may be faulty switch.

The parking brake release cable on my 1997 dodge grand caravan is broken and the brake is stuck in the engaged position. The entire cable assembly (about 12 inches long) has dislodged somehow so there is...


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!)
