There are two places you can tighten the brake cable one by the handle and the other on the brake cable near the real wheels or driver side. Also should be under warrenty if you can find a shop now.

On my 2007 Dodge Nitro the third brake light & towing brake lights dont work, i've checked all the fuses related to this problem and are ok


INSURE THAT THE LIGHT UNIT IS NOT DEFECTIVE. AUTO ELECTRIC DIAGNOSIS BASICALLY IS FAIRLY SIMPLE.
1. CHECK THE CIRCUIT FOR THE FIRST POINT YOU HAVE POWER.
2. CHECK THE LAST POINT YOU DON'T HAVE POWER......THE PROBLEM LIES BETWEEN THE 2 POINTS

Emergency brake doen't work when put in drive.


Locate the emergency cable under the car, or have someone help you, about 2/3rds toward the back of the car, the cable should have a "tightener", you can loosen or tighten the cable with a wrench, tighten a little at a time until you get the desired result you need

What is needed to fix emergency brake on dodge nitro


Adjust the Emergency Brakes
  • 1 Raise the car on a car lift. While using a car jack may be tempting, do not use it. A car jack is much too unstable to properly support a car for long and should at least be reinforced with safety stands.2 Locate the emergency brake adjustment. It will be found underneath the car, roughly in the area where the emergency brake pedal is located in the interior of the car.
  • 3 Adjust the emergency brake using either a screwdriver or a wrench, depending on the make and model of your vehicle. The brake line will be visible and in most cases will need to be tightened. This can be accomplished by turning the emergency brake adjustment so the line becomes tighter.4 Test the emergency brake again by parking on a sloping road and engaging the emergency brake, again noting at what point it engages when it has beenpressed and at what point it is fully engaged.5 Repeat the adjustment process until the emergency brake will engage properly. Take care not to adjust the emergency brake too tight, or it will always be engaged, which will damage your hydraulic brakes as well as the emergency brake.

Emergency brake light comes on while driving


The wire that connects to emergency brake is loose, and grounding out. It probably just needs to be tightened up.
