The brake release is vacuum operated. Check to see if a hose broke or maybe just fell off.

Hello I've 2013 Automatic Honda Civic(56kclicks) when I park it on an incline with the E Break on, it does not jerk while I shift from Parking to Reverse but it does when I don't put the E Break on


When you have the E brake on the weight of the car is being held by the E brake. When you park the car in park and no E brake on, the weight of the car is loaded onto the drive train and gearbox.
The jerk (and clunk) is the preload being released from the drive train. Not good for your transmission and a bad way to leave a car parked.

Usually means the vac motor is faulty, or you have lost vac to the motor. When you shift out of park, vac pulls the release for the parking brake.

Why does the parking break light stay on in my 97 Olds Cutlas Supreme. I have checked the level of the break fluid and it is full. I did have new break lines put in last year. I did have to slam on my...


Apply the parking brake with the vehicle parked, engine turned off and transmission in Park. Release the parking brake completely, then apply it again, and ensure that it is fully released. Turn the ignition on, check to see if the Parking brake warning light is on. If it is NOT on, apply the parking brake and check to see if the warning light comes on. If the light come ON wihen the Parking brake is applied,.....fully release the parking brake and check if the warning light goes OFF. If it does NOT go off, then an adjustment is needed at the parking brake switch.

My 97 blazer wont go in gear


the trans receives a signal from a censer that tells it you have applied the break, which allows it to shift. do your break lights turn on when you push on the break?

1999 accord wont shift out of park and no break lights.


u have a problem with ur break light switch,,, its at the brake pedal and is threaded into the brake pedal bracket, if u have a new one and are going to replace it, disconnect the connector, loosen the 14mm nut and remove the switch by turning it counterclockwise...install ther new switch by turning it clockwise and tightening the 14mm nut then reconnect the connector...be sure to adjust the switch or else the brake lights will stay on at all times...draining ur battery and possibly burning out ur bulbs...this also releases ur trans from park to put into gears

Parking break wont release


I suspect the parking brake cables are rusted & corroded inside the cable housings. They are coated but they do freeze up.
