With a normal handbrake, you can remove some screws around the handbrake covering. The screws are sometimes well hidden so you have to look around.
When you get the covering off, there are two adjusting nuts at the rear of the handbrake. Turn the nuts until you can get "5 clicks" on the handbrake to set the brakes.
Some jack up the car while doing this so they can rotate the wheels by hand to feel when the brakes touch the pads.
Hope this helps

There are several things that can make a hand brake stick on. It possible the cable attached to the leaver has come off it guide. There is a cable running from each rear wheel to the handbrake leaver , a inner cable running through a outer housing , chick that the inner cable is free to move back and forward . if all the cables are free to slide adjust the rear brakes and hand brake as instructions . Slacken off the hand brake cable adjustment. Jack up the rear wheals and adjust the brake shoes till the brakes lock, then back off till the wheels are free to turn. Then pull the hand brake leaver on two clicks and adjust the hand brake cable till the rear wheels just start to bind, release the hand brake leaver and check the wheels are free to turn.

SOURCE: warning light on dash says headlamps not leveling

There is an issue with the height control sensor on the Prius product. Is it still under warranty? If not, go back to the dealer and tell them that you want scheduled to see the District Service and Parts Operations Manager. When you meet with him/her, explain the situation, and the costs involved. He/she has the ability to grant "goodwill" assistance, and possibly help you out on the repair, with Toyota participating in some of the costs.
Can't hurt to try. More often than not, the DSPOMs are very flexible, and like to promote customer satisfaction.

SOURCE: dash warning light not found in manual - hot to turn it off

The flashing key-inside-a-car means the anti-theft system is working properly. On page 84 of the 2009 Prius owners manual, the explanation indicates that a flashing key-inside-a-car is normal, and is desired. It should extinguish when the automobile is operating. It may be distracting, but it's a good thing!!

SOURCE: skid control randomly engages without turning or

I had the same problem. the jerking breaking and pulling to one side, but if u are going over 70 miles and that happens to you, you better start praying cause it will **** so hard that its hard to control. the yaw rate sensor (prox $400 on line) needs to be replace and adjustment (i beleave only the dealer can adjust). What I did to solve the problem is to eliminate the sensor ($0 cost). now my SUV drives and handle just like a regular truck without traction control. Toyota is not helping on this matter and dealers just dont care. I will not put my family thru the same scarry ride. My solution eliminate the sensor, the light is on @ all time but in return a smooth ride. Im not telling you to do what I did, but Im telling you it is the Yaw Rate Sensor. Good luck.

A red light on the dash board


The warning lights should be listed in your owners manual. It could be a warning for one of the gauges, or engine/transmission problems.
They are more common on Toyota Prius.

No there is a brake switch to turn on the brake lights when you step on the brake pedal. It is located near the rake pedal under the dash. It has more then likely failed.

Blinking Orange Exclamation Point on 04 4runner


Since your question is listed as a 1999 Saturn SL and a Toyota 4Runner, I will answer both:

1999 Saturn SL
Typically the orange exclamation point dash warning light is indicating a problem with your brakes, parking or hand brake. Check to ensure that your emergency brake is completely disengaged.
Check to ensure proper brake fluid level.
Otherwise this could be indicating a problem with the ABS system.

04 Toyota 4Runner
Low tire air pressure. Inflate to approximately 32 PSI should correct your problem.

I hope this helps.

Brake light on the dash is stuck on my 94 land cruiser ...why?


Hello!
From your description it sounds like the warning light switch has either come adrift or stuck? If you examine the hand brake area look around for possibly a White plastic plunger that should be exposed when the hand brake is lifted/applied. To confirm identification there will be two wires possibly in a clip on plug going to it.
If the plunger/switch is in situe then it may have stuck, try gently pushing the plunger in and out it is sprung loaded so resistance should be felt, if you touch it and it is sloppy the try getting behind it and pushing the body back into its slot. You may have to remove the sock/gaitor that covers the hand brake base.
If all fails then try removing carefully the wired plug to it and the light will be permanently off on the Dash.
There you Go!

Warning light on dasher


This is the taillamp failure indicator. You either have a burned out taillamp or a burned out brake lamp bulb(s). Please make sure when you check for inoperative brake lamps that you make sure that the brake lamp in the rear window works, also.

Dash warning light


As it turns out all it needed was some brake fluid. The switch on the lid is working fine. I still am looking for the CD service manual. Thanks

Sensor Lights


Hi,

Based on your description, if it is red that would be the "Brake System" warning light. This warning light indicates that the hand brake or the park brakes are engaged. Alternately, this could also indicate that the level of the brake fluid in the reservoir is below nominal. Top off brake fluid if low and have your brake pads checked as well as visually inspect for any possible brake fluid leak.

On the other hand if it is yellow that would be the ABS (antilock brake system) Light. Momentary lighting up would be normal at startup but consistent light would indicate a malfunction in the brake system such as either low brake-fluid level, stuck brake caliper or faulty ABS. Check brake fluid level and have your vehicle's brakes checked.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
