08 mercury milan stuck in park


Check and see if your brake lights are coming on.
There is a brake interlock and if the brake pedal switch is loose and doesn't turn on the brake lights, it will not let you shift out of gear.

Its to keep you from rolling in to something by accidently putting it in gear. It also keeps you from driving with no brake lights, which will tend to get you rear ended.

The switch is usually physically attached to the brake pedal bar under in the drivers footwell.

Cannot get it out of park


The first thing to do is check to see if the brake lights are working, if the system doesn't sense the brake is applied through the BOO switch then the park lock will not release.

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.

Adjusting the parking brake on a MiTSubichi ENDEAVOUR 2005


If your parking brake is too loose or is not properly adjusted, you may encounter problems while parking, positioning and driving your car. Most of the time, car owners would send their car to a mechanic in order to fix and tighten the parking brake. However, you can actually skip this step and adjust your parking brake yourself. When your car starts to slip on a hill in its park position, you need to start tightening the parking brake.1 Remove the car's center console cover placed around your parking brake level inside your car. This is found between the seat of the driver and the front passenger.2 Use your wrench to turn its adjuster nut found at the end of your parking brake's cable rod. Loosen the adjuster nut with your wrench, while making sure that it does not come off at your parking brake cable rod's end.3 Raise your car rear wheels using your jack, and use your jack stands to support both its rear wheels.4 Pull up your parking brake handle up to two clicks or notches. Tighten your adjuster nut until you feel a slight resistance on your rear wheels whenever you spin them.5 Release your parking brake lever. Check and make sure that your rear wheels are still able to spin freely and without any resistance.6 Pull up on your parking brake lever up to three to five clicks or notches, while making sure that your car's rear wheels are not turning at all.7 Lower the car by adjusting your jack, and remove your jack stands from your car's rear wheels.

The handbrake doesn't hold the car on steep slopes, only gentler slopes - and even then I hold my breath! It's had new pads and the cable has been tightened too, but the problem's still there...


I think you should look into the possibility that your rear brake pads, and your parking brake pads are different items. Replacing one is not necessarily replacing the other. Many vehicles have different brake surfaces, and adjustments thereto, for parking brakes. Find the person who did the back brakes and ask him if there is another set of pads for the parking, and if so, did he replace those too? If they do not know, call a dealer parts department or a plain jane car parts store. I notice advance parts seems to indicate a parking brake shoe set for your car, in addition to the back brakes, but they do not sell them.

I have to fight my shifter into goin into park and getting out of park, I pust the button on the side as hard as i can but nothin will happen, eventually it'll go into drive but then when i try to put...


You didn't mention what year or model your car was but most late-model vehicles have a brake interlock on the shift mechanism, which makes it so you must have your foot on the brake in order to shift the vehicle out of Park. If your vehicle is equipped with this interlock, it may simply be out of adjustment. With a floor shift, the solenoid for the interlock will be under the indicator bezel at the base of the shift lever. Remove the bezel and, with the ignition ON (car doesn't have to be running), check to see if the solenoid shaft is fully disengaging from the shift mechanism when you press on the foot brake. If not, first lubricate the solenoid with penetrating oil (this usually solves the problem). If it doesn't solve the problem, loosen the solenoid from its retaining bracket and adjust it so that the shaft completely clears the shift mechanism when you place your food on the parking brake. Hope that solves the problem!
