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.

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.

Check the Starter and starter solenoid. If you remove them, any auto parts store will bench test them for you at no charge. This is assuming you have a "good" battery and good connections. If you dont know take the Battery to be tested also. A bad Battery will make sparks and show 12 to 14 volts on a dc amp meter, but when it has a load put to it will die. Any autoparts store will have a bench test for batteries also. Good luck.

you should hear a click from the solenoid when you apply the brakes. If your brake lights don't work, your shift lock release won't either. There is a bypass method for emergencies in your owner manual. Check fuse for brake lights. And switch on brake pedal

My brake light won't turn off even if my foot

Your brake switch is just hung up. it is located directly above the brake petal and is attached to the petal bracket-use a flashlight and get down low enough to see up under the dash where your brake petal is, it will be hooked onto the petal bracket-just move it, it is probably just mis-aligned.

Check your emergency brake. Make sure it isn't partially pressed in. Try unplugging the switch to the emergency brake and see if the light goes out; if it does the switch is bad.
