Problem with my E-brake

OK so last night in Minnesota it got pretty cold and icy outside my driveway has a slight incline and i noticed my neighbors Saab slid down there driveway and into the street. so i had a great idea of pulling the E-brake up so mine would not slide. Today its about 10 to 15 degrees out and i went leave and pulled my e-brake down and started driving when i noticed it was still any ideas for a cheap fix for this??

If you live in MN like I do. Than you have to use the e-brake all the time or not at all. If they are never used and you try to use it, all the cables will be stretched out. Or they will snap. Now you have to manually take a pliers and push the cable out on all four wheels. You can remove each tire and adjust the cables that way, but it would be time consuming. If your cables are stretched or broke, than the brakes are still engaged.

    50-50 chance. Sometimes you can push with pliers and othertimes you have to take the tire off. I would just take the tires off anyways and make it that much easier to get around

Your check engine light is on because the computer picked up a problem with the vehicle. Take it to Autozone and they will scan it for free. They will let you know what is wrong and what parts you may need.

I'm not sure that is possible without having your key in your ignition. When reprogramming keys or transmitters they would all have to be reprogrammed to work with your vehicle at the same time so as long as your current keys and transmitters work I'm pretty sure that this incident is pure fluke!

Gear locks when i park on even a slight incline


ALWAYS engage the Parking Brake BEFORE putting car into "Park". When you want to get out of "Park", put your foot on the brake pedal, move gear shifter into desired gear, THEN take down Parking Brake. If you get stuck (gear shifter doesn't move), then try the "rocking" method (recruit 1 or 2 folks to push your car from behind while you try to move gear shifter into desired gear). Good luck!

Got stuck on slick icy roads twice night before last.... after the 2nd time of getting stuck my brake warning light is now stuck on... brake fluid levels are fine and brakes work fine... I drive a 94 chevy...


due to icy temperature the your brake fluid froze i suggest that you might flash the brake fluid..every 2 yrs the two thumbs up to flash your brake fluid because when it get old due the boiling point went low that can cause or losing brake in high or low temp..let me know what happen after flashing your old brake fluid

Brake Light


to narrow things down... park the vehicle in the driveway over night... when you move it in the morning ... note the area of the spill on your driveway as it would apply to the car.
Two quick things... what is the level of your brake fluid and what colour and smell was the spill ?
