Sounds like two different problems - the brake light switch and the speed sensor in the transmission.
Does the speedometer work ?

How do I adjust the emergency brake?


Over here we call it a parking brake - hardly any of our cars are autos.

Parking brakes usually connect to the rear disc brake calipers but some manufacturers use a small drum brake in the disc centre for parking purposes due to the complexity of the caliper with integral parking brake.

When adjusting a parking brake it is important in most designs for the cable to be adjusted only to remove any free play without moving the caliper levers from the backstops and then if the parking brake lever or pedal travel is excessive it must be because of wear or other faults. Sometimes that basic requirement must be taken with a pinch or two of "experienced" salt...

Ford have a self adjusting parking brake I have experience of. A spring within the system preloads the cable eliminating all slack in the cable so the cable moves the caliper levers from the first. The main problem with the system is the preload spring is sometimes strong enough to overcome the resistance of the caliper spring and cause a binding brake. No manual adjustment was provided.
In that case I find fabricating and fitting brackets to anchor additional return springs to the calipers is a must.

When I put van in park - it rolls backwards. all gears work except park... I have to put parking brakes on to stop rolling.


This is an internal issue with a broken "parking pall". If you can live with it, maintain your adjustment on the parking brake, if not, have a trusted transmission shop look at it. They may be able to do the repair inexpensively. This is not in anyway going to affect the shifting or performance of the transmission.

I need some liquid to stop my van making noises


It's not the transmission, because you wouldn't see the space that the transmission fluid fills, and it's doubtful that it's the brake fluid, the brakes will act up all the time (stop lights, etc) if that were the case, so it must be the powersteering fluid. If your car is sort of a pain to steer around corners, the slower you go, the harder it is to move the wheel to turn, and you hear a sort of whiney noise when you get into a deep turn, or are turning slowly, that would for sure be powersteering.

How do you change back spark plugs in 2005 buick rendezous


Most GM FWD's are a pain, but theres a trick. Undo the dogbone that connects the engine to the front frame where the radiator is (some cars/vans have 2, a few have only 1) with a second persons help, push the vehicle forward from the back until it stops (leave the trans in park and the parking break unset) when it stops, lock down the parking brake to keep it from rolling back. Viola, easy access to the plugs. When you're done, put your foot on the brake and then release the parking brake. Slowly let off the brake to avoid having the engine slam back against the firewall, and then reconnect the dogbones. You may need to rock the car a bit to get the bolts back in, but it shouldnt require much.

My van is stuck in park


first have somebody check if the brake lights at the rear of the van are working when you apply the brake pedal if they dont its a fuse for the brake lights if they do work its more than likely a shift lock solenoid
