Your rear brake pads may be getting low, the hand brake is a self adjusting type, so to fix it...with the car turned off, release park brake, pump the brake pedal 10-15 times, it should auto maticly adjust itself

Parking brake functions but will not stop car?


The brake shoes or pads seem to be out of adjustment, the components inside the brake drum could also be corroded frozen . Unless you are qualified to do brake work, I don't recommend you do it yourself . Its called an emergency brake for just that reason ,you and your familys life could depend on it working correctly what ever the cost go to a professional .

How to adjust parking brake on 1993 chevy lumina ?




  • Adjustments




  1. Apply service brake pedal three times with a force of approximately 175 lbs.


  2. Fully apply and release parking brake three times. Full application may require two pedal strokes.


  3. Raise and support vehicle, then mark relationship between wheel and axle flange.


  4. Check parking brake pedal assembly for full release as follows:






    1. Turn ignition switch to On position.


    2. If ``Brake\'\' lamp is illuminated, operate manual brake release and pull downward on front parking brake cable to remove slack from pedal assembly.





  1. Remove rear wheel and tire assemblies, then install two lug nuts to retain each rotor assembly.


  2. If two parking brake levers on both calipers are not against lever stops on caliper housings, check for binding in rear cables and/or loosen cables at adjuster until both left and right levers are against their stops.


  3. Tighten parking brake cable at adjuster until either the left or right lever begins to move off the stop, then loosen adjustment until lever moves back barely touching stop.


  4. Operate parking brake several times to check adjustments. A firm pedal feel should be obtained by pumping pedal two full strokes and rear wheels should not rotate forward when parking brake is fully applied.


  5. Install wheel and tire assemblies, aligning marks made in step 3.

Parking brake will not keep car from moving.


May be the rear brakes need adjusting,or the park brake cable needs tightened. If you leave it in park ,running,step on the brake ,notice how far the pedal travels,then apply the e brake.Step on the brakes again,if the pedal is firmer,the rear brakes need adjusted.If there is no difference the cable needs tightened

2002 Honda civic, car still moves when put in park


car move, in park and brakes set.?
my guess, is it moves, brakes not set, and is bad.
the linkage to the tranny are bad. (adjust it , inspect it visuall)
the tranny parking pawl is sheared in half. (using park while moving wrecks this part , sheared or bent)
park = transmission selector is in the park position,

Parking brake is stuck on and car won't move.


hoq long has the parking brake been on? it may be rusted in place...usually if it is you may need to replace the parking brake cable.... but a quick fix may be remove the rubber plugs on the inside of the rear drums and use a flat screw driver to lift the adjusting lever and turn the adjusting screw gear back to release the brake shoes from the drum.... so depending on if the cableis rusty you may try wd-40 to loosen the cable? on maybe you have to replace the cable.

Parking brakes is stuck and its not the cable


well there is a cable which rusts into the car just behind the parking brake pedal or lever. then it goes down to an adjuster which has a separate cable running from it to each back brake. the adjuster and all the cables' routing holes like to rust up with age, then the spring loaded location where the cable enters the back plate of the drum brake likes to get rusted up and freeze also. if all of those locations are moving freely then you need to pop the drum off and see what is holding the parking brake lever from moving against and opening the brake shoe. if there is no brake material left then not only do you have no parking brake, but you have little or no rear brakes to assist the front brakes in stopping the car.

When I apply the brakes on my '02Dakota only the forward brake shoe moves against the drum. Have replaced wheel cylinder but makes no difference. Both shoes move when I loosen adjuster cable. Have this...


you mean parking brake cable? loosen parking brake cables put drums on , and adjust shoes till they lightly drag, now apply brakes a few times and check the adjustment again, if all ok, now adjust park brake cables, you want to adjust so park pedal goes 5-8 clicks till the wheels are "locked up" and the wheels spin free with the park brake off

Adjusting Padking Brake with 4 wheel disc brakes.


Hope this helps. This is out of the factory manual. Let me know if this works for you.
PARKING BRAKE NOTE: Tensioner adjustment is only necessary when the tensioner, or a cable has been replaced or disconnected for service. When adjustment is necessary, perform adjustment only as described in the following procedure. This is necessary to avoid faulty park brake operation.
  1. Raise vehicle.
  2. Fully back off cable tensioner adjusting nut at equalizer to create slack in cables.
  3. Remove rear wheel/tire assemblies. Remove brake calipers and rotors.
  4. Verify park brakes are in good condition and operating properly.
  5. Verify park brake cables operate freely and are not binding, or seized.
  6. Check park brake shoe adjustment.
  7. Reinstall rotors and make sure rotors turn freely.
  8. Reinstall brake calipers. Tighten guide pin bolts to 41 n·m (30 ft.lbs.)
  9. Reinstall wheel/tire assemblies after brake shoe adjustment is complete.
  10. Lower vehicle enough for access to park brake foot pedal. Fully apply park brakes
NOTE: Leave park brakes applied until adjustment is complete.
  1. Raise vehicle again.
  2. Mark tensioner rod 6.35 mm (1/4 in.) from edge of tensioner bracket Adjustment Mark On Cable Tensioner Rod
  3. Tighten adjusting nut at equalizer until mark on tensioner rod moves into alignment with tensioner bracket
CAUTION: Do not loosen, or tighten the tensioner adjusting nut for any reason after completing adjustment.
  1. Lower vehicle until rear wheels are 15-20 cm (6-8 in.) off shop floor.
  2. Release park brake foot pedal and verify that rear wheels rotate freely without drag. Verify pedal returns to fully released position.
