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!!!!

Why is my emergency brake light staying on after i changed the rear brakes


it could be the e-brake may not be completely down allowing the switch to not be pushed all the way off, also the switch may be out of alignment not in the proper place. if the e-brake cable sticks a little it may the handle up enough to not turn off the switch.

My brakes stay stuck and the car wont move


sounds like your emergency brake cables are stuck raise your car one wheel at time starting with the front (block the back wheels for safety) put the car in neutral and see if the front wheels spin by hand if so the e-brake is the problem try rocking the brake handle a few times if that dont do it put the car back down find the cables under the car and try to move them around the cable may release itself doing this

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.

When i pull the ebrake and then release it its staying on i have replaced the handle and the main cable from the front to the rear and its still sticking what do i do???? Thanks Travis


adjustment is out, start at rear brakes inspect cable action with wheel off and observe action when handle is engaged. it might have a broken spring there, the handle also has a spring., release brake and use screw driver to push back brakes ,take slack out of line at adjuster and that should be your adjustment. if it gets stuck again its at the brake caliper, wheel cylinder or hardware depending on make and year of car.

Brake indicator light in dash staying on, adjusted parking brake not long ago but rarely use it, last time I did apply it the dashilght staying on after it was released


If your rear brake shoes are worn down enough there is a chance that the tension spindle in the wheel is failed open/or broken.

Emergency break cable broke on 2004 silverado


I had the same problem on my 2003. Open the driver door all the way. Get on your knees just outside the door. Follow the plastic tub that holds the parking brake release cable inside the truck. Start from the release lever and follow to the end of the tube. There will be a metal lever that the cable was attached to before it broke. You have to pull that lever with your hand to release the parking brake. Very Important!!!...Hold the parking brake activation pedal with your other hand when you release the brake. Let the pedal out slowly when you pull the metal release lever. The pedal will come back very fast and you could injure yourself if you are not careful. Good luck!

Parkling Brake Console Light Stays On


Parking Brake Console Light Stays On The light is on because the brake fluid is low. The sensor in the brake fluid reservoir is signaling low fluid. This may be because leaking or the brake pads/shoes are worn down, so check to see if they needs replacement. In the mean time you can add brake fluid.

The Parking brake switch is activated by the brake handle. If you use a flashlight you may be able to see it next to the handle.

Trunk stuck on a 03 Corolla


I was able to unlock my trunk by using a wood pole to operate the interior safety unlock handle, which is located just above the trunk floor, against the rear of the trunk lid. You simply insert the wood pole between your rear seats, while attempting to locate the handle release. When you find the handle, use the wood pole to push down on it.

Then, I had to take the top of the truck mat loose by using a flat head screwdriver to pry the plastic plug holders loose from the trunk. I also had to use a 10mm socket to loosen the trunk locking mechanism. Once inside, I notice the remote release cable ball had dislodged from its slot. I simply placed the ball in its slot and reassembled the trunk.

Problem solve. :)

Rear door lock keeps clicking and I cannot open rear door. Power lock has drained my battery so I am charging it now. I have pulled the power lock fuseto stop power lock but what do I do to fx it.


there is a small plastic access door in the interior just opposite the rear door handle. Pry that open with a flat screwdriver and reach as far as you can towards the passenger side (staying the same level as the access door). There is a small light switch shaped lever that will release the lock and allow it to be opened from the outside.
