SOURCE: transmission hesitates & gets stuck.

You have two separate issues here. First, the delay going into gear may benefit from a fluid change providing that the cause isn't just low fluid level but not always. It will not help immediately, because likely there is a lazy shift valve caused by a small amount of varnish which may need some time to clean up. It may not help at all if the valve is sticking because of wear or other internal mechanical problem.
Your other problem is with going out of park. Actually, that is a normal condition that happens in every vehicle, but is more noticeable in heavier ones or those with slightly shorter shift arms on the transmission itself. Virtually every manufacturer uses the same method of locking a transmission in park. This is done by using a square piece of steel that fits into a square slot on the outside of an internal drum which is locked to the mainshaft of the transmission. Around that drum there are multiple slots as well as "blank" areas between them so that you can select park without having the vehicle need to roll a full revolution before the piece of steel (called the parking pall) can engage the drum. It does need to roll a bit till it finds a slot though. Putting the parking brake on takes tension from the drum and pall, so that the pall is not "loaded" by the weight of the vehicle, which makes it difficult to pull it back to disengage it. The weight of the vehicle and severity of the incline come into play here, as they add to the amount of loading. The length of the trans shift arm provides either more or less leverage, making movement either easier or more dificult...so there is a variable between vehicles for all of the different reasons above.
Every owners manual will contain instructions to use the parking brake on hills but don't explain why...now you know. Parking against a curb, you are loading the lock mechanism from the steering side which is why you should avoid parking like that.
Long answer to an easy question but that's how it works!!!

SOURCE: Why doesn't the eletronic parking brake work?

Try a reset of the park brake.
Make sure you have your radio code.!!
Disconnect the battery - leave for 10 Min's.
Reconnect.
Turn ignition on. If fault has not reset - try the following
Apply foot brake (not too hard)
Apply park-brake switch following instructions on the message center.

Use this method for any park brake fault as most of the time it fixes the minor problems caused by glitches and low battery voltage.
hope this helps good luck

Had my tired rotated, since then my Service ESC light comes on along with the brake "brake fluid" light comes on. I'm not sure if it something serious or i just need to unhook my battery and reset it.


check brake fluid level and make sure no leaks if low fill to proper level and check brakes it low change them as to esc when tires were changed workers may have hit sensor or damaged wiring by front end or a bad sensor sometimes rarely some hhr owners state a hiccup and reset the computer and it was fine but before you do that check and make sure brake system is correct and safe usually brake resets itself when repair or fluid is corrected

Brake Light. Make sure you are not driving with hand brake on. Check brake-fluid level. Top off brake fluid if low and make appointment to check brakes. Driving with brake light can be dangerous; deal with this soon. Call tow truck or drive carefully and slowly to shop.
ABS (antilock brake system) Light. Indicates either low brake-fluid level, stuck brake caliper or faulty ABS. Check brake fluid and make appointment to get brakes checked. Call tow truck or drive carefully and slowly to shop.
Oil Light. Either engine is very low on oil or there is no oil pressure. Pull over and turn off engine immediately. Check oil level and add oil if low. Turn engine back on to see if light has gone off. If oil light is still on, bad oil pump (no oil pressure) is likely. Call tow truck.
Check Engine Light. Car's computer senses engine problem. Difference in performance may not be noticeable, but make appointment to have car diagnosed. This usually cost around $65-$75 to do. OK to drive. If problem is serious, computer may switch to limp-home (low-power) mode and you won't have option of waiting to bring car into shop.
Air Bag Light. Get air bags checked. Problem could prevent them from activating in accident. OK to drive, but not safe in accident.
Battery Charge Light. Alternator is not charging. OK to drive, but turn off any unneeded electrical devices (radio, heater, defroster) and avoid starting engine more than necessary. Bring car into shop soon to avoid getting stranded. When alternator is not charging, battery loses charge and car stops working.
Emissions Lights (O2 sensor, EGR, check emissions). Depending on car model, these lights may indicate problem with emissions sensor or may light up at certain mileage, usually 60,000 miles (100,000 km). Get sensors checked. OK to drive. If problem exists, car might get poor gas mileage.

Brake light staying on. on my 2001 ford windstar what might it be


check your master cylinderr fluid level. If full brakes may be worn badly or master cyoinder may be going bad.. if brakes are ok change brake sending unit usually located on master cylinder. do noty drive until you are positive your brakes are good. if fluid level is low in master look for brake fluid under car usually on back of wheel.if no brake fluid on back of wheel inspect brake lines for a hole usually rusted through. if this is helpful please leave me positive feedback.

My brake and abs light has been coming on


If BOTH lights are coming on at the same time, or really any time any brake related light comes on, then you should have this fixed as soon as possible as it's a potential safety hazard. You can start by checking to make sure the brake fluid level at the master cylinder is full as a low level there can sometimes cause both lights to come on.This fluid level will slowly decrease a bit over time as the brakes wear normally and fluid is taken up by the brake calipers as the caliper pistons move outwards. The fluid level could also become low due to a leak somewhere which is a serious problem. If the level is low then it should be determined where the fluid has gone. If the level is good then the system has seen a serious problem with both the ABS control system and the hydraulic portion of the brakes. Either way, have it checked out as soon as possible.

Just changed rear brake pads on 05 mazda 6. now


This is normal and you need to keep pumping the brakes till they reset there self. Once the brake peddle have reset there self and is firm, check the brake fluid level again and add brake fluid if low. After brakes have reset there self, go for a test drive around the block and check the parking brakes. Good luck.
