it's only supposed to adjust to the point where it works...otherwise it would tighten up from use and stop you dead.

SOURCE: adjusting the parking brake on 03 pontiac vibe

If you look under the van on the driver side (usually) you'll see where the two cables from the rear inter-connect with the main cord to the front. Here, you should find an adjustable bolt that you can tighten. If it is not here, it may need to be tightened from there rear tires.

If you have drum brakes in the rear, these are most likely "self-adjusting" brakes, which may interact with the emergency brake. Everytime you back up, and apply the brakes, you are activating the self adjuster (you would have seen this located at the bottom of the brake system between the two brake pads. This is the self adjuster. Try going in reverse at about 5 miles per hour, and hitting the brakes firmly (not slamming on them). Drive forward again, and firmly press the brakes. Go in reverse again, and apply brakes firmly again; (do this about 4 or 5 times to get the rear brakes adjusted). Try the emergency brake again and if still not tighter, purchase or look in your repair manual as to how to adjust the emergency brake.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Where does the pink praking brake wire go on 2003 cadillac deville go


Where are you seeing this pink wire ? I'm looking at a wiring diagram and I see a pink wire at the (RIM) rear integration module . It goes to the park brake relay A ,control side . The RIM supply's a ground on that circuit energizing the park brake relay A . There is another park brake relay - B . Are you familiar with the RIM module .
The park brake system is a mechanical and electrical system which operates on the rear disc brakes. The system is activated by depressing a foot pedal lever assembly, which sets the rear brake caliper via cables. The park brake is released by shifting the vehicle out of park or activating the manual release.

Park Brake Release
The rear integration module (RIM) controls the operation of the electric release park brake. The RIM uses serial data messages to determine if the correct conditions exist to release the park brake. The park brake is released under the following conditions:
• The engine is ON.
• The gear shift lever is not in Park or Neutral.
• The park brake switch is closed.
When all of the above conditions exist, the RIM releases the park brake by simultaneously activating the 2 park brake solenoids. After 2 seconds, the RIM deactivates solenoid A. The RIM continues to activate solenoid B while the above conditions exist, which prevents the park brake from being set.

Brake parking release


Hello. Press and hold the button on the brake parking release handle and at the same time, pull up the handle hard untill you hear a click sound, that means the brake will be released. If you don't have the strength to do that, ask someone to help.

Releasing Parking Brake


adjust the park brake cable first (3 pedal clicks and brake should start to engage the rear wheels) then lube the park brake ratchet release parts (under the dash) with WD40, this should take care of the problem.
