SOURCE: Parking Brake problem
2000 S-10: brake functions properly while pedal is held down, but when I remove my foot, the brake is released.
The following is not a repair so much as a solution to the basic problem and I guess it won't pass scrutiny of any state inspection. Nevertheless, this idea may skip around the automatic pedal stop malfunction and buy you some time while a proper part replacement is arranged.
The release cable ends at the ratchet assembly by the pedal and the lever which receives it can be pushed forward before depressing the pedal thereby engaging the stop which will hold the pedal down and keep the brake engaged. There is no click, or catch evident when the release lever is moved forward and it only moves a little bit.
Not the easiest reach from the driver’s seat. Also, the release cable is likely to jump out of its place if you just reach blindly and push.
From what I've read on this site, there are some design issues with the ratchet mechanism that commonly lead to failure of the pedal stop function.
Hopefully this will help those who still want to park on a hill.
