I would hazard to guess that the cable is frozen in its housing from rust and moisture, and the light is a random event.  I will gradually slither back to it's rest position in time from vibration alone.  You should go underneath and wiggle the cable to help it return.  If the cable is badly rusted, try to avoid using it until you can shoot penetrating oil down it or replace it.  The cause may actually be corrosion from wetness and salt that the car had before you parked it, and not so much freezing.   Japanese cars from the 80s are notorious for getting rusty, especially their hardware.

The left rear driverside wheel is grinding and the emergancy break won't engage when preesed. Although the brake light comes on. can you tell me what could be wrong


Hi

Is it drum brakes? if so it sounds like the brakes have came away inside, hence the gringing, they have springs to hold them in place, they often brake if a lot of pressure was put on the emergency brake, that or a cable has snapped and stuck them on. Quite confident that will be the issue.

Hope that helps
Regards

2000 lexus rx300 orange brake light coming on. what could be the problem? comes on everytime we drive it now from the minute we start. intermittently goes off and on along with bell noise. tried mashing...


I am having the same problem. I am thinking it is a sign of the alternator going out. The light and bell sounds also sounded when I pressed the door lock button to lock or open the doors.

its possible the switch on the e/brake unit broke, take a flashlight and locate a single/double wire that goes to the e/brake assembly (this is the piece you depress with your left foot) and look to see if the wire is broken or the switch the wire goes to is broken.

Emergency brake light comes on while driving


The wire that connects to emergency brake is loose, and grounding out. It probably just needs to be tightened up.

Wiring? emergency brake light?


it sounds like the switch in back of emergency brake is bad or out of adjustment.the switch must be grounding out to make car quit. without looking at it, I would say it is the switch.
