The parking break is a stand alone cable that can be adjusted if you climb under the vehicle. depending on your parking break location in the cab will help you better locate it under the car IE if you set your parking brake using a handle in the center of the vehicle cab, the wire is close to center under the vehicle, if you use a handle or foot pedal its on the driverside of the vehicle and Y's off to the passager side and driver side rear break

follow the cable and you will find the adjuster bolt, just tighten it to take up slack in the cable, if there is no slack you will increase the efficency of the parking break.....Dont over tighten it though cause this can cause drag in the rear breaks and shorten the lifespan of the break shoe or pad

Air valve leaking air thru it when u release tractor parking brake 1999 379 Peterbilt


If it's the same air valve that releases the parking brake then replace it so the brakes won't drag because of low air pressure. Air is APPLIED to release the brake so if the system air pressure starts to go low the parking brake will start to apply. This will eventually cause the brake drum to overheat and possibly start a tire fire.

IP Brake light has come on in my 2004 Kia Sorento.. what does this mean?


Kia Sorento parking brake or brake fluid dash warning light - this light is illuminated when the park brake is applied, the warning light should go out when the parking brake is released. If the light does not go out it indicates that the brake fluid level in the reservoir is low and you need to pull over and top up at your first opportunity.

1-check parking brakes not applied
2-check brake fluid
3-if it is too low have the brakes checked they might be wearing out it doesn't mean you have a leak but when the brakes wear out the become thin causing the caliber piston to push out more lowering the oil level in the reservoir

Parking brake light is on


The light can come on when the brake fluid is low in the reservoir. Check the brake fluid level and add as necessary using only brake fluid from a sealed container.

If the fluid was low check the brakes. Low fluid can indicate a possible leak in the brake system or worn out brake parts.

Parking Brake Fault light is coming on? I reset the battery and it keeps coming on. It starts with the "apply parking brake" light and then when you take off, it goes to a parking brake fault? Please...


This is a common fault often caused by low battery voltage, before you start taking expensive actions with the park brake modules etc get your battery checked for 100% efficiency.
Hope this helps, good luck.

Park break light stays on sometimes


Check the parking brake light switch which is located under the center module, remove the cover around the parking brake and you'll find it there.

Why doesn't the eletronic parking brake work?


Try a reset of the park brake.
Make sure you have your radio code.!!
Disconnect the battery - leave for 10 Min's.
Reconnect.
Turn ignition on. If fault has not reset - try the following
Apply foot brake (not too hard)
Apply park-brake switch following instructions on the message center.

Use this method for any park brake fault as most of the time it fixes the minor problems caused by glitches and low battery voltage.
hope this helps good luck

My parking brake is coming on and off. but my parking brake is not on. could this be a wiring problem, the fuses seem to be fine


THE LIGHT FOR THE PARKING BRAKE IS SOMETIMES ALSO USED FOR LOW BRAKE FLUID LEVEL OR WORN OUT BRAKE PADS. CHECK THE BRAKE FLUID LEVEL, A FLOAT ACTIVATES A SWITCH WHEN THE LEVEL IS LOW. IF THE LEVEL IS VERY LOW BUT THERE DOES NOT SEEM TO BE A LEAK, CHECK THE CONDITION OF THE BRAKE PADS (FRONT & REAR). WHEN THE BRAKE PADS WEAR OVER TIME, BRAKE FLUID REMAINS IN THE CALIPERS TO COMPENSATE FOR MATERIAL WORN OFF. ALSO A SMALL METAL CONTACT EMBEDED IN THE BRAKE MATERIAL WIRED TO THE PARKING BRAKE LAMP, WILL MAKE CONTACT WITH THE DISC (GROUND) WHEN BRAKE PAD MATERIAL WEARS OFF AND LIGHTS THE LAMP.

Parking brake light


The parking brake and the low brake fluid use the same light. If it comes on during acceleration, your brake fluid level is low and you need to add some brake fluid or replace your pads. The brake fluid gets low as the pads wear as the whole system is hydraulic. Another possibility is a brake fluid leak. As you accelerate, the fluid gets pushed back causing the low brake fluid light to turn on.
