SOURCE: Red Brake light comes on when driving (not handbrake light)

Possibly the brake fluid level low inside the master cylinder so when you brake the fluid moves inside and the contact is made when the fluid moves to the one side of the reservoir, could also be the brake booster that is faulty. Some vehicles were equiped with a sensor that conects up to the booster which monitor the vacuum inside the booster and if the vacuum is very low it switches the same light on as the hand brake. Everything is conected in the same circuit. Hope it will help

Red Handbrake warning saying Apply handbrake and not starting

I familiar with this setup, but the car should start with the parking brake on. I could see it warning you if you try to move it with brake set, or maybe even shutting off engine then, but I would never think it would prevent engine from starting. Is this a stick shift or automatic. Make sure transmission is in neutral or park, clutch depressed.

Adjusting hand brake

there is a cable adjuster under the center console if its got a rear ashtray just pull that out and look there.but you should remove the rear brake drums and check the shoes. and the handbrake fulcrum levers, they can sieze up. also make sure the levers return to the stops with handbrake off and the auto adjusters are working ok before adjusting the handbrake cable! it helps brake performance if you give the auto adjusters a bit of a tweak before putting the drums back on. manually adjust 3-4 clicks or until the drum goes back without binding.

A light came on my dash of an exclamation mark with a circle and brackets around it but only came on dull, not really bright. What does that mean? And can I damage anything by driving it? Thank you

That sounds a lot like a brake warning light. Check your brake fluid. Take it for a SLOW drive, and see if the brake pedal feels unusual at all (spongy, soft). Wind your windows down, turn off the radio, and listen for any unusual noises, like grating or screeching.

If your brakes fail, then yes, you can damage something by driving it- Starting is optional, stopping is mandatory.

Your handbrake doesn't run on any hydraulic systems, so if they fail, in an emergency, you can use the handbrake. Apply it slowly- pulling it up hard will most likely cause your brakes to lock- but you'll need to use a fair bit of force... Without getting into physics, your back brakes don't work anywhere near as well as your front brakes do.

Rear brakes over heating

u have a defective ABS hydraulic control valve, this is an active control system and it can apply pressure regardless of pedal input from the driver, the problem is a tiny hydraulic pressure valve is leaking and applying that brake piston.

Adjust handbrake on nissan terrano

On the inboard side of the rear wheel hubs, you will find an oval rubber plug, pry this plug out, to gain access to the brake adjuster.
Pull the handbrake up two clicks.
Jack and support. Remove the rear wheel, and adjust the brake using a screw driver levered through the slot to turn the notched wheel of the adjuster, until the hub starts to drag when rotated by hand. Repeat for the other side. Note the ratchet mechanism on the adjuster will only let it turn one way.

They all work the same. Call it parking-brake, hand-brake or foot-brake, it is the same.

Use your hand, or foot to apply the foot-brake, whatever is convenient for you is ok.
