  1. Press down on the clutch pedal and set the parking brake.
  2. 2Identify the brake adjustment feature, located below the brake operating arm. It includes a jam nut, regular nut and rod. Measure the distance between the brake operating arm and the regular nut. The regular nut is distinct from the jam nut -- the jam nut is the outer nut.
  3. 3Loosen the jam nut and turn the regular nut so that it's exactly 1-1/2 inches between the arm and regular nut. Double-check that the parking brake is engaged, then re-tighten the jam nut so it abuts the regular nut and holds it in place at the correct distance. Try the riding mower stopping procedure again in a safe place.

adjustable pedal relay Adjustable Pedals System Components
The adjustable pedals system consists of the following components:
• The adjustable pedals position switch
• The driver seat module
• The adjustable pedals relay
• The adjustable pedals motor
• The brake pedal position sensor
Adjustable Pedals System Operation
The adjustable pedal system is controlled by the adjustable pedal switch or the driver seat module and operation can occur only while the transmission selector lever is in the PARK position. The adjustable pedal assembly is moved forward or backward by a motor, which is fixed to the brake pedal actuator with a drive cable to the accelerator pedal actuator. The adjustable pedal motor is operated by 2 motor control circuits from the adjustable pedal relay. In an inactive state, both of the motor control circuits are closed to the ground contacts within the relay. The relay coils may be energized by the relay control circuits from the driver seat module or the adjustable pedal switch. When a relay coil is energized, the motor control circuit is switched to the battery voltage supply contact. The adjuster motor is bi-directional and the direction of the pedal assembly travel is determined by which of the motor control circuits is closed to battery voltage, while the other remains grounded.
The driver seat module monitors the location of the adjustable pedals using the brake pedal position sensor. The brake pedal position sensor is supplied with 5-volt reference and ground circuits from the driver seat module. The position sensor signal circuit is referenced from ground within the driver seat module. The signal voltage monitored by the driver seat module ranges from 0.39-4.58 volts and is determined by the wiper location on the resistor within the position sensor. The position sensor circuit voltage level is used by the driver seat module to determine the position of the adjustable pedals when storing or recalling memory position settings.

How to make mower stop when clutch/brake pedal depressed


Depending on the model and manufacturer of your mower, but it seems like the brakes are the problem.
I have a Murry and it has one disk brake on the rear wheel shaft. The master mechanism for this disk brake needed to be cleaned of dirt and grass clippings. In my case, this helped but brakes only 50% effecient so I use reverse when on an incline.

Problem with braking.-right foot depresses both brake pedal and accelerater


Try adjusting the brakes first. There is an adjustment nut in the pedal that sets the up height for the pedal. Might want to look into raising the pedal that way. You may not have enough brake fluid in the master cylinder. Check and adjust fluid level if necessary.

My break light swithes on sometimes without me even pressing the breaks. The break light also sometimes stays on even when I have taken my feet off the break. I have tried changed the break light switch...


Did you adjust the brake light switch correctly? To adjust the brake light switch, first press the brake pedal down a few inches, then pull the switch plunger rod out of the switch toward the brake pedal arm, as far as you can without using excessive force. Next, return the brake pedal to the pedal stop position against the pedal stop and pull the brake pedal toward the rear to push the brake light switch actuating plunger rod into the switch housing limited by the travel of the brake pedal arm rear travel stop position. This procedure automatically adjusts the brake light switch correctly.
If the brake lights still don't turn off with the brake pedal released, check the brake pedal arm for sticking or binding that is preventing the brake pedal arm from returning fully to the pedal stop when the brake is released.

How to adjust parking brake. do you need to take anything apart?


You cannot adjust the cables on a minivan manually. the tension is automaitcally adjusted by the self adjuster on the pedal release.

The park brake cables on this vehicle have an automatic self adjuster built into the park brake pedal mechanism. When the foot operated park brake pedal is in its released (upward most) position, a clock spring automatically adjusts the park brake cables. The park brake cables are adjusted (tensioned) just enough to remove all the slack from the cables. The automatic adjuster system will not over adjust the cables causing rear brake drag.

Due to the automatic adjust feature of the park brake pedal, adjustment of the parking brake cables on these vehicles relies on proper drum brake.

When the park brake pedal is applied the self adjuster is by-passed and the pedal operates normally to engage the park brakes.

When a service procedure needs to be performed on the park brake pedal or the park brake cables, the automatic self adjuster can be manually locked out by the service technician.

Brake and gas pedals


The vehicle has a optional adjustable brake to increase driver comfort. The brake pedal position is changed in phase with the accelerator pedal. The system is adjusted by pressing the dash-mounted switch that powers the driver motor mounted on the accelerator pedal assembly. The two-way motor operates backward (away from the driver) or forward (toward the driver) to adjust the accelerator pedal directly and the brake pedal through the drive cable attached to the brake pedal assembly.
