What is wrong when it shows parking brake fault


What make , model an year vehicle ? What do you mean ? The red brake light symbol is lit on the dash or you have a message on the DIC - driver information center saying parking brake fault ! If the light that comes on when you set the parking brake is what your talking about ., This light also comes on when the brake master cylinder is low on brake fluid ! Could need brakes or have a leak in the hydraulic system. The light could also be on at the same time as the ABS light ,which could be a whole other problem .

1994 dodge dakota my headlights and tail lights and brake lights don't work my abs and parking brake lights are on my dash lights don't work either I replaced the headlight switch and still no


These are all different circuits. The brake lights are on a 10amp fuse - the headlights are on a 50amp fuse - and the parking and dash lights are on a 20amp fuse.
Do you have power going into the headlight switch and the brake light switch ?

Brake pedal has alot of back pressure and car moves in gear.Have to press real hard to stop.How to check abs pump if has one where or brake booster or master cylinder?Don't know how to trouble shoot or...


The air seeping is a dead giveaway. Your power brakes are now manual brakes, but stiffer. The diaphram in the brake booster has torn and the hissing noise is the engine vacuum escaping (you hear it louder when you depress the pedal right?). Replace the booster and you will be fine. The brake lights probably don't work because you can't push the pedal down far enought to release the switch. Please rate. Thanks.

How do i know if my 1999 plymouth breeze has anti lock brakes?


Hi Coop,

When you put the ignition on and the lights comes on the dash then you can look for the ABS symbol which is just like this (ABS) if so then you have the abs on your car if no light then you don't have it . Also if you are familiar with cars then you can locate the ABS pump under your brake fluid reservoir under the hood. Good luck

Abs on dashboard stays lit all the time.


The only way to know axactly what happen is with a diagnostic computer.
Because the ABS use a Speed sensor on each of the wheels.
Hydraulic selenoids on the ABS box or Module..
If the light is on. its mean the Anti Lock Brake System is inactive., You gonna brake like any car with no ABS.
I hope this information work for you.
