Should be adjustments at the ends of your emergency cables that run along your the bottom of your truck frame . at the ends around the differential . loosen the nut and give it a few turns equally on both sides if theres two adjustments.

My brake lights do not work and it is suuck in park, I haved put a new brake light switch in and that did not work


There is a switch nicknamed a BOO switch. It is on the brake lever under the dash. This is often adjustable and controls the brake lights and the release for the gearshift. When properly adjusted it makes the rear lights come on as soon as the brake pedal moves. There is a release for the gearshift that uses a solenoid so even if you get the brake lights to work, a bad gearshift solenoid may keep the Park locked.

Adjust parking cable 99 dodge dakota -drum brakes


Unless you have replaced the cable, it should never need to be adjusted. If you can reach under the vehicle, and when wiggling the parking brake cable, if it is taut (not sagging), then it is probably adjusted properly. What usually causes the parking brake cable to appear mis-adjusted (the parking brake won't hold the vehicle), is that the self-adjusters in the rear drum brakes are not working properly. This is bad because it means that you are not getting proper braking from the rear brakes as well as having the parking brake issue. This can cause premature wear to the front disc brake pads/rotors and affect braking power and control under certain stopping conditions. Front disc brakes work so well that many people never realize that their rear brakes aren't doing their fair share. The purpose of the self-adjusters in the drum brakes is to keep the rear brake shoes at a consistent distance from the drum's inner surface as the shoe lining wears down. If the adjuster works correctly, the parking brake will always stay in adjustment. You CAN adjust the parking brake cable, but if the problem is actually with the self-adjuster, you are masking the real problem, and later on when you need to replace the rear brake shoes, you will find it impossible to put the drum back on over the shoes as the parking brake will have the shoes pushed out too far. Have a mechanic check out the self-adjuster mechanism. It is always a good idea whenever you replace the rear brake shoes to replace all the rear brake hardware as well. You don't replace rear brakes nearly as often as the front ones, and the cost of the hardware is minimal in relation to the satisfaction of knowing that non-corroded parts will work better and provide longer service than the older, gummed-up and rusted hardware that is currently installed.

93 ford F800 park brake will not hold


The first thing to check is the amount of linings on the shoes . If less than 50 % replace the linings/ shoes. Next check the adjustment is right up . Park brake operation should never rely on hydraulics for the simple reason that hydraulics leak and the brakes come off. It will probably be spring loaded with the electric over hydraulics holding the brakes off when moving

Recently bought a 89 ford ranger pickup 2wd. My emergency brake doesnt work


Given the vehicles age, I would say you will have to replace
the back parking cables, from the drums out, if they are even avail

Back brakes will have to come apart & be serviced also, to have parking brakes work

My emergeny brake will not hold. I have already spent $150.00 and I still have a problem with my brake holding. The mechanic says that I need new emergency brakes, but he did not even look at the breaks. I...


The parking brake can be "adjusted" from either inside the vehicle or underneath, although adjusting the parking brake AT the brake itself is the correct way to adjust the brakes themselves. The proper procedure would be to adjust the actual brakes, then to test at the pedal or handle (depending upon which vehicle you have). If the handle or pedal has too much "freeplay", THEN the cable or handle/pedal will need to be adjusted.

If you do not use your parking brake on a regular basis, the brake components will usually build rust (if it is a "drum-type" parking brake). This also can prevent the brake from holding properly.

Unfortunately, it is difficult to determine if your mechanic is taking advantage of you without knowing exactly what was done to your vehicle, but I would say if you are not satisfied with your current mechanic, go to a few places and get the parking brake "checked." Ask other mechanics their opinion- after they have inspected the parking brake, do the brakes need service or not? What can be done to improve the parking brake's performance?


One last note, some technicians don't realize that new parking brakes need to be broken in, and any small amount of grease or oil can negatively affect the operation. If you DO wind up needing brakes, try to use your parking brake as often as possible to keep everything working smoothly.

E-brake in 93 Ford Ranger doesn't work


The cables are probably stretched if you use it on a regular basis or seized if you are like me and never use it. Crawl under the truck on the driver's side, about 1/2 way to the back and find a steel cable running to the back wheels. Follow it down until it hooks up to 2 cables. Pull on the main cable by hand and watch to see if the other 2 move when you do that. Give it a good yank. If the 2 cables don't move they are seized and need to be replaced. If they move then the main cable is stretched.You can replace it or you can buy a tightener at the auto parts store. It's commonly refered to as a Chevy e-brake cable tightener. It just hooks on the cable and shortens it by tightening a nut on the J hook. You can use more than one if you need it. This would be easier and cheaper than replacing for now. Hope this helps.

How do you adjust the parking brake on a 1994 ford ranger,manaul trans,4wd


Start by adjusting up the rear brakes, if those are tight and you still want to tighten up the parking brake running down the driver's side, outside the frame are the parking cables. somewhere around the back of the cab/front of the bed should be a plate with 2 cables and a bolt. tighten the bolt/nut up to make the parking brake tighter
