You may have to check the switch for the e-brake light if it is stuck or shorting out. It is found at the base at the center console. You will have to open up the console to get to it.

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.

I have a 2001 gmc sierra and the emergency brake will not engage. I can push the pedal to the floor and it will lock in place and the light will flash but I still can drive it with know problem. Another...


The usual problem with the park brake is the design of the rotor. The park brake is on the inside of the rotor. The drum area rusts inward onto the park brake shoe, wearing it out. Thus the pedal goes to the floor. I f you really need the park brake you will have to replace the rotors and the park brake shoes.

As far as the brake light goes, have the abs system checked for codes. You may have a wheel speed sensor issue. Have you had your recall done for the rust under the sensor issue?

Emergency brake pedal will not stay down when i press it.


The parking brake actuator (the mechanism you press with your foot) works like a ratchet wrench. The pedal has a cresent shaped plate with teeth on it. It pivots on a mounting plate. There is a pawl with a small spring also on the backing plate. This pawl engages the teeth on the pedal assembly to hold the brake engaged (against the large return spring).
Stick your head under the dash and look carefully at the parking brake actuator mechanism. See why the pawl is not engaging the teeth on the pedal assembly. Most likely causes are that the release mechanism is jammed "on" or that the light spring which attaches to the pawl is missing (usually from being kicked by some one with large feet) View this mechanism on another GM vehicle with the same style parking brake if you suspect that parts are missing.

I.P Brake light is staying on.. what does this mean


Hi,

Offhand, the brake light warning on most dashboards would indicate that the hand/emergency brake is engaged. If even when the hand/emergency brake is disengaged or is in normal position and the light is still lit, it could indicate that:
  • the brake fluid in the reservoir is below minimum level;
  • and possibly the brake shoes/pads need replacement.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
