SOURCE: parking brake release

When you try to release it, you'll need to pull the pedal up at the same time to get it back in place.

How do I fix my 2012 mazda 6? it wont go out of park.


The brake shift interlock should have an emergency release button...this is usually located at the base of the shifter...you will need to insert a slim object into the coin size release opening...look on both sides of the shifter for the opening...this is a factory over-ride...hope this helps.

by releasing the park brake you are in fact putting air in the park brake (spring brake diaphragms) that compresses the springs and allows the brakes to release. When you apply the park brake you are in effect dumping the air out of the system and allowing the spring brakes to come on. The light is telling you that there is insufficient air in the park brake circuit to fully release the spring brakes. Some ideas are that the air lines on the trailer are opposite to the prime mover(tractor), there is a kink in the air lines in the trailer , the air tank that holds emergency air for the spring brakes system has an internal leak in a valve between chambers or externally between air tanks. I would make very sure that I fixed this problem before I travelled as the consequences of a trailer wheel lock up at speed could have very serious results.

Parking light wont go out and keeps dinging


Reach down and release the parking brake at the same time pull up on the parking brake pedal. Sometimes the pedal gets bumped just enough to engage the switch indicating the brake is engaged.

Air valve leaking air thru it when u release tractor parking brake 1999 379 Peterbilt


If it's the same air valve that releases the parking brake then replace it so the brakes won't drag because of low air pressure. Air is APPLIED to release the brake so if the system air pressure starts to go low the parking brake will start to apply. This will eventually cause the brake drum to overheat and possibly start a tire fire.

Hummer H3 airbag light wont go off


Airbag light on in a Hummer H3 Dashboard???Here is the fix...
Start the engine of your car, set the parking brake, hold the regular brake pedal down with your right foot. Push down the parking brakepedal to its fully-applied position with your left foot. Now while you are still holding the regular brake pedal down. Quickly release the parking brake, Pull the bottom edge of the lever, located above the parking brake pedal, with the parking brake
symbol, directly rearward to release the parking brake. Make sure pedal snaps hard all the way back releasing the parking brake... If this doesn't work the first try, try it 3-5 times and it shall work... The airbag light will go off...


NOTE: The parking brake pedal is located to the left of the regular brake pedal, near the driver's door.
&

The parking brake lever is located above the parking brake pedal, with the parking brake symbol.

Parking brake wont stay engaged on 2000 s10


Do you mean that the parking brake works when you press the pedal down but the pedal does not STAY down? If this is the case, you should look at the parking brake mechanism to make sure that the lever that releases the brake is not stuck (the release cable attaches to it - SEE PICTURE BELOW). You will have to remove the lower dash cover to do this. Sometimes the lever gets stuck in the "relaese" position when you pull the cable. Some spray lithium grease usually works well in getting it working again.

If the lever is not sticking, then the ratchet mechanism is dammaged and the pedal assembly will have to be replaced. The assembly is only attached to the vehicle with 3 bolts. It can be a little tricky getting the main cable disconnected fronm the old pedal assembly and connected to the new pedal assembly, but other than that it is not hard to change.

93 honda accord wont come out of park


If it is like the newer vehicles, the brake pedal has to be pressed to release shifter. Possibly the switch from the brake pedal could be the problem or the release solenoid at the shifter itself. Make sure all of your fuses are good before continuing on to the previous suggestions.

Parking brake wont release


Your cables have rusted up. they need replaced. You can cut the cable towards the back by the tires. This will take a grinder or a large set of bolt cutters. This will release the brakes until you can replace them. You just wont have parking brakes, all the others will work fine.

Wont go out of park


Jack up one rear wheel, park brake off, to release the pressure on the drivetrain. This will release the gear shifter. Take care to chock the other wheels before releasing the park brake.
