Question about Buick Century
Brake warning light and buzzer are activated. Releasing brake does not disengage light or buzzer. Brake is not dragging. By removing Fuse #6 I can circumvent the warnings. Question #1: Please suggest why light and buzzer would be activated and Question #2: Will I lose any functions other than warning lights on instrument panel by pulling fuse #6? Thanks for your help. -- Ron
I can't tell you what will happen from removing that fuse from the block but i would suggest checking the fluid level. Low fluid level will turn on the same light as having the parking brake on. Also are you sure the pedal is fully coming up? If a emergency brake cable is broken the pedal assembly won't return up regardless of how many times you pull the release, leaving the buzzer and indicator on. Try pulling up on the pedal and at the same time pulling the brake release. If the fluid level is good and the pedal is fully up, try disconnecting the switch on the parking brake assembly and see if that turns the light off.
