POSSIBLY SWITCH THAT RECOGNIZED PARK BRAKE ON OR POSSIBLY BAD MOTOR. YOU CAN GET A TEST LIGHT AND PROBE THE CONNECTOR FOR POWER AND HAVE SOMEONE ACTIVATE MOTOR TO SEE IF ITS A PWR PROB OR MOTOR THATS BAD. MAYBE PLAY AROUND WITH PARK BRAKE,MAYBE SWITCH JAMMED OF STUCK AND NEEDS JARRING TO ACTUATE.

Emergency brake stuck to floor will not release


Hi Barbara:
I'm guessing that when you pull the release handle it moves, but nothing happens.
Odds are that whay has happened is that the cable has come out of the release lever, Or, the cable sheath has slipped out of its retaining slot.
Either way, you have two things to do:
1) Get mobile so you can go home. To do this, put it in park or low gear with the motor off. You will need to access under the dash where the release mechanism is located. Use a pair of pliers (or whatever else will work) to pull or pry the release lever away from the firewall (towards the seat. The parking brake will release.
2) Go home (or wherever, just don't use the parking brake.
3) Repair the brake:
- Release the Cable Sheath from the retaining slot.
- connect the cable to the release lever
- Re-install the cable sheath into the slot.
Ta Da!!!!

Its sitting in park.will roll back an forth like its in neutral. turn key,nothing happens. have full battery.could it be a neutral safety switch?


It sounds like your transmission is not going into park. There is a safety switch which is why you have to engage the brake while the vehicle is in park to start it. It is not sending current thru because it is not registering that the vehicle is in park. Try engaging the emergency brake and taking the transmission to drive then back into park and see if it engages. Then try to turn the ignition and see if you have power to your gauges and ignition switch.

When starting car sounds like battery was dying then did not start got a jump and started drive home turn off car and nothing no start. Got a new battery still new start got new altenator still no start...


Need more info so we can look up wiring diagram? Dodge is the make, what is year and model? Sometimes when battery voltage is lost, it can cause problems?
If starter motor won't crank the engine, check starter motor wiring circuits. Any testing at starter motor make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set. I haven't checked your security system info.
If you think the problem is the starter motor, usually you can take it off, lay it on the ground, hook up jumper cables properly from starter motor to good battery, at the least, it should kick out starter drive gear and spin.

Ignition switch will not turn on. Battery is good. Steering wheel is locked, What should we do?


Quite often that will happen when vehicle parked with wheels turned, and/or vehicle on a slope, so try to avoid that in future.If nothing else, when parked on a slope, stop, keep foot on brake pedal, apply parking brake, put transmission in neutral, then take foot off brake pedal and wait for parking brake to stop vehicle rolling, then shift it into park. When leaving, put foot on brake pedal, shift to drive or reverse whatever direction your going, then release parking brake. Sounds like a lot to remember but you won't have to pull hard on shifter as before, and it could save a lot of money on transmission repairs down the road. Always try to park with wheels straight as well.
Now, with that said, if you parked with wheels turned, try hard to turn steering wheel in same direction wheels are turning, just slightly, as you try to turn key. Sometimes a quick yank in that direction will do it. Also make sure shifter is all the way in park before you try it. If your on a slope try rocking vehicle slightly up slope as you push/pull shift lever in to park and try to turn key at same time. If no luck, try pushing brake pedal real hard and try to turn key. Let me know how it goes.

It wont start turn key dash lights up nothing happens


sounds like a dead battery to start with. Not even enough juice in the battery to energize the solenoid / brake interlock to get it out of PARK. Hope this helps
