What if the 2000 dodge caravan break light comes on


If the BRAKE light comes on, and the parking brake is not engaged, it indicates a potentially very dangerous condition, where hydraulic pressure is lost in the system. IT IS NOT SAFE TO DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE IF THE BRAKE LIGHT ILLUMINATES, EVEN "ONCE IN AWHILE," WHEN DEPRESSING THE BRAKE PEDAL.

IT IS ALSO NOT SAFE TO DRIVE THE VEHICLE IF THE BRAKE LIGHT ILLUMINATES WITH THE PARKING BRAKE DISENGAGED.

The cause for the issue may be:
  1. Bad master cylinder (most likely);
  2. Contaminated brake fluid (if the wrong kind of fluid was used);
  3. Bad wheel cylinder(s);
  4. Damaged brake line;
  5. Excessive wear on brake parts (such as pads and rotors);
  6. Defective brake pressure sensor.

Brake light won t turn off at dash fluid full


That light is also tied in with the parking brake,with the key and light on pull up on parking brake pedal to see if light will go off, assuming you have a good brake pedal & not a mushy feel then it's doing it's job telling you have a hydraulic issue in the system.The switch for the parking brake is mounted on the mechanism and a single wire to it,works off a cam with pedal pushed down switch grounds the circuit.

Parking light wont go out and keeps dinging


Reach down and release the parking brake at the same time pull up on the parking brake pedal. Sometimes the pedal gets bumped just enough to engage the switch indicating the brake is engaged.

I have a 2010 dodge journey and the shifter get stuck in park


If your parking on an incline, that would possibly cause it plus switch at brake pedal may need to be adjusted. If you find pushing harder on brake pedal helps, have it adjusted, or replaced.

Parking brake wont stay engaged on 2000 s10


Do you mean that the parking brake works when you press the pedal down but the pedal does not STAY down? If this is the case, you should look at the parking brake mechanism to make sure that the lever that releases the brake is not stuck (the release cable attaches to it - SEE PICTURE BELOW). You will have to remove the lower dash cover to do this. Sometimes the lever gets stuck in the "relaese" position when you pull the cable. Some spray lithium grease usually works well in getting it working again.

If the lever is not sticking, then the ratchet mechanism is dammaged and the pedal assembly will have to be replaced. The assembly is only attached to the vehicle with 3 bolts. It can be a little tricky getting the main cable disconnected fronm the old pedal assembly and connected to the new pedal assembly, but other than that it is not hard to change.

The parking brake release cable on my 1997 dodge grand caravan is broken and the brake is stuck in the engaged position. The entire cable assembly (about 12 inches long) has dislodged somehow so there is...


I had the same thing. just remove the cover from under the steering wheel and you can see the ratchet release lever. You can also remove the metal cover that is under the plastic cover for more visibility. now just reach in with a bit of stiff wire with a hook on the end and pull the lever back to you. that is all the cable does, and voila, the brake is released. now you just have to remember not to push it down again (I did!)

Parking brake pedal stuck up


Possibly one of the pedal or bracket mounting bolts may have loosened up and is jammed against the pedal lever.
