SOURCE: parking brake pedal goes to floor

The disc brake pads are NOT used for the parking brake. The parking brake uses mini-drum type shoes inside the rear disc rotor.

Please can you help me?my car is a bmw320cd [55 reg] and the light on the top right of the dashboard keeps coming on. it goes yellowthen red. it looks like a line with a squigle going through it and has...


rough edged circle with exclamation point in it is illuminated
Automatic transmission
The transmission has responded to a malfunction by reverting to operation in its emergency default program. Please consult the nearest BMW center.
For additional information: refer to page 59

(page 59)
Electronic transmission control module
If the indicator lamp comes on, there is a malfunction in the
transmission system.
Bring the vehicle to a stop. Move the transmission selector lever to "P."
Engage the parking brake and turn the engine off (ignition key to position 0).
Wait a few seconds, then start the engine.
If the indicator lamp goes out after a few seconds, normal transmission performance has been restored. You may continue to drive as usual.
If the indicator lamp does not go out, you can place the selector lever in all positions. However, the vehicle will now only operate in 3rd and 4th gear.
If this happens, avoid extreme engine loads and consult the nearest BMW center. hope this helps you to aviod ruining your vehicle

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.

We just purchased a 2003 745Li BMW. My wife pushed the parking brake button and now it won't release


The parking brake cable is probably frozen by dirt or corrosion (too much friction for the brake return spring to overcome). Try injecting Liquid Wrench or a spray lubricant into the cable housing(s) underneath the car, then pulling on the cable by hand. If you get it loose, clean up the part of the cable that goes into the housing, or any part that slides on another, and coat with a thin film of grease. Engage and disengage the parking brake several times to make sure it works smoothly.

If you can't get the cable to work freely, you may have to replace it.
