Question about 1997 Plymouth Voyager

1 Answer

Emergency brake not working

I have a 19997 plymouth voyager and have had all new brakes, rotars and new e brake cables put on but now seems like the e brake pedal will go down but its not working. We played around with the cables and if pulled on they hold a little but when you look at the cable running to the e brake pedal under the dash it is tight and not moving. Does this mean that we may have to replace that also? What a pain this has been.

It isn't very often you need to replace that. Have you tried tightening up adjustment, or perhaps re-checking your rear shoes adjustment?

Airbag light on

You have 2 separate problems. If the airbag light is on, then the control unit needs to be serviced. You will need to read the code from your diagnostic port. After that, replace the component indicated by the code.

The brake light could be low fluid in the reservoir or an indication that the emergency brake cable has stretched and you no longer get enough tension to operate the switch. Check the reservoir first. If that does not fix it, play with the emergency brake to see if you can get the light to go off. If you can, then you need to find the adjuster on the cable and tighten it.

Hi I have a 99 Voyager and it has a spring release emergency brake. I recently pressed the brake in when I parked, and when I can back to leave my Emergency brake would not release. I need Help!

Try pushing it down with your foot again and pulling up on the release at the same time. This should release it. Also try backing up while you pull the release. Sometimes this will jar the cable to release. THe cable may need to be replaced

Front brakes heat up and sieze both my front brakes feel like there sticking after driving for a while plymouth voyager 1998

Whenever you have new brake pads put on it is best to have the rotors cut. Otherwise they can shudder or grab or any number of things. If the vehicle is pulling to one side or another it could be a frozen caliper. Calipers should always be replaced in pairs. As with all brake work, anything done to one side absolutely needs to be done to the other. Always purchase medium grade brake pads and shoes. Premium pads and shoes are almost always too agressive for any rotor to withstand and will generate excessive heat and premature wear. If your brakes seem like they arent releasing it is most likely the calipers.
