SOURCE: emergency brake not holding
You have to go under the truck, there are cables that are adjustable. Look on the driver side just back of the front seat location the screw adjuster is there.

Testimonial: "Hey thanks! I had several issues and you had the solutions. "
Emergency Brakes have slack on the cable . this can be adjusted by moving the adjuster at the cable to bring the cables to both wheels tighter together. Thre are also Kits you can buy at JC Whitney for this purpose.

First pull the plug in the braka adjusting tool and make sure you still have enought shoe left to adjust then follow the cable from the rear brakes to the Y that connets the to brake cables then get a wire brush and brush off the threded end of the Y spray with WD 40 and then unlock the locking nut using two wrenches to hold one nut while removing the other then adjust the single end of the Y nut towards the joining part of the Y adjust it till cable is fairly snug jack up the rig so the wheels are off the ground and make sure the wheels still turn freely. are you sure that the auto ajusters are working? if you see the brake lining is less than 1/16 of an inch the thickness of a dime then replace the brake shoes first. If you need more information let me know and if you adjust the cable and need to replace the shoes later you will have to back off the nut to get the shoes on. thanks for using Fixya and if this was helpful please rate.
