The cable is stuck, common issue. If you can find it underneath the car you may be able to free it up with some WD40. It should be greased regularly, if possible.

Why does parking brake stay on?


jiggle the handle to make sure that the mechanical part of the parking brake system has been completely relaxed and that there is no tension on the cables or levers. If the light is still on, see if the vehicle moves without any drag. This can be done by moving the vehicle in a forward direction and then putting it in neutral. If the vehicle rolls very freely, then there may be a problem with the parking brake light switch and not with the parking brake mechanism itself. If you feel a pull, there is a problem with the parking brake mechanism.

1998 expedition yesturday was low on fuel got gas drove with headlights on got 4 miles down road vehicle died thought was bad gas 3hrs later vehicle would run but abs light and brake light would flash


There is a problem in the electrics of the vehicle. First place to start is to check the alternator drive belt for condition and tension. Next place is the battery terminals and condition and tension . Third place is to have a load test done on the battery as it may have an internal short and drawing all the current from the alternator. In effect when you add power requirements ( park lights then brake lights then headlights) you are actually using more current than the alternator can supply to keep the engine system running.

Key is stuck in ignition


For some reason my 2002 does the same thing. Do you by chance park on an inclined driveway, because we do and setting it in Park with that extra tension may be causing this. If you do park on an incline, as we do, pull in and when you put on the brake keep it down while you set the parking break, so no tension is on the transmission, then move the lever to park. Hope this helps!

2001 chevy S-10 pickup parking brake will not stay down


I too, have had problems with my '01 s10 parking brake. This brake is not like other vehicals. The regular brake pedal needs to be pressed down before the parking brake can stay down. Same with it being released. It is explained more clearly in your owners manual. Hope this helps! Please rate 4 thumbs up!

If your rear brake shoes are worn down enough there is a chance that the tension spindle in the wheel is failed open/or broken.

My saturns e-brake stoped working and wont stay up how can i fix that?


if you mean the parking brake, sounds like you have broken a cable. the cables keep tension on the handle and without that tension it won't stay up. also the broken cable would mean no parking brakes. if however the parking brakes work when you pull and hold the brake handle, then you have a broken part in the handle itself. you will need to get under it to figure out which cable is broken and replace it. the heat shielding may make this hard. I think the parking brake system is made of three separate cables, you can buy new ones at autozone, advance, ebay. stay away from dealers and used parts on this repair.

Parking brake light is stuck on after releasing the brake handle. Is there a tension adjustment for the cable somewhere that can be tightened up?


of course there is. but befor you go near that...check your brake fluid. when brake fluid is low, that will cause the parking brake light to stay on.

2001 sonoma parking brake petal wont lock into place


There's a ratchet in the top of the pedal which holds the pedal down when depressed. This ratchet is worn, broken, loose, or it just needs lubricating. I would first try WD-40 on the top of the pedal where it attaches to the frame/chassis.

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.
  3. Lower the vehicle
