    Take the rear tires off and pull the drums, look at the brake shoes and brake hardware, operate the park brake and see that the mechanical portions are not stuck, if they are free them, make sure the shoes are not worn out, adjust the shoes to lightly touch the drums, then check operation of the brake if it works fine put the tires on. Normally the rear brake shoes adjust themselves as you apply the brakes in reverse, so if you don't back up as often your shoes may be out of adjustment

There are two main ways to adjust your brake. 1) adjust bracket on the frame rail (driver's side). 2)adjust rear shoes. check for proper movement of all arms and brackets on rear shoes.

How do i release the emergency brake on a 2000 plymouth voyager


Should be a bar on the left side of the dash near the headlight switch you pull out.
Check your owners manual for details.

1994 mercury grand marquis. My emergency brake light will not stay on when the brake is on. The bulb has be checked and it is still go. I need this for it to pass inspection


Hello, These controls are very simple. You need to have the switch adjusted in the holder under the dash or more slack in the adjustment cable.

The way this works is the contact switch needs to extended far enough to activate the bulb. If the Emergency brake is too tight, the contact switch does not get enough room to extend. There is adjustment in the holder for this. What usually happens is the contact switch has extended for a worn system.

When new Emergency brakes are installed or the brake cable is adjusted, someone should have reset the Emergency brake holder. Now the Emergency brake switch does not have room to work. The cable does not move far enough to allow the plunger to move under the dash. You need to either adjust the holder or loosen the cable.

How do you check to see why your emergency brake is not working


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the sight. More then likely, the cable is broken. You have a cable that activates your emergency brake. The cable will run under the car. If you have any questions, just let me know. Thanks for using FixYa.

Emergency brake light stays on the dash. is it a troubleshooting light?


It probably indicates that the cable is not being fully retracted when brake is disengaged. Spray as much of cable as possible with WD-40, allow to sit for a few hours, the engage and disengage the brake several times untill it loosens. If this fails the cable may be stretched and needs to be replaced.

Emergency brake stuck, pedal release broken


What happens is the brake cables rust inside the cable sheath and then they won't slide easily. There's no good fix for this other than replacement. It's not easy to even find where they are stuck.It might be possible to find the end of the cables at the back wheels and pull the cables back---to release the tension

2004 explorer brake light will blink here and there while driving


check and make sure brake fluid is full, if so then the emergency brake has a switch on it that will make the brake light come on. to check this get in vehicle and push emergency brake then release it then take your hand and wiggle the emergency brake peddle and see if the light comes on and off. if so then the peddle is not comming all the way up against the switch this may be solved by just pulling up on the peddle each time the emergency brake is released,
