Parking break light is on & Chimming When P. Break is released

I have a 2003 Chevy Suburban 1500 4WD. Recently the parking break light is on and the "engaged" bell is chimming even though the break is released. I took the vehicle to a repair shop and they advised me the brakes are fine and said something about a sensor on the parking break assembly. Any ideas?

On your parking brake assembly is a single wire switch. You can unplug it, but you will have to remember not to drive with it set. To replace the switch the whole assembly will have to come out. The switch is about $20 and labor should run about two hours. Good Luck

Apply the parking brake with the vehicle parked, engine turned off and transmission in Park. Release the parking brake completely, then apply it again, and ensure that it is fully released. Turn the ignition on, check to see if the Parking brake warning light is on. If it is NOT on, apply the parking brake and check to see if the warning light comes on. If the light come ON wihen the Parking brake is applied,.....fully release the parking brake and check if the warning light goes OFF. If it does NOT go off, then an adjustment is needed at the parking brake switch.

Check the parking brake light switch which is located under the center module, remove the cover around the parking brake and you'll find it there.

Parking brake cable snapped but brake is on. any


Under the dash, where the break release handle is, you'll see a lever where the release cable is/was attached to. Either push forward, or pull back this lever and it will release the parking break. BE CAREFUL the foot peddle for the parking break doesn't hit you in the face!

Parking brake pedal goes to floor


Hello;
The parking brake cables may be stretched and in need of adjustment. Follow the cables along to a nut. Then you can tighten the adjusters up on both sides until you have the proper tension. Also make certain none of the brackets are bent or broken that the cables ride through.
Thanks;
