Check to see if your rear wheels will turn freely, as the rear brakes might be stuck against the drum.

Feels like I'm being held back


Sounds like your brakes are sticking. Possibly the emergency brake is not disengaging entirely? Stop the car and put in park. Apply emergency brake as hard/far as possible. Then release and put in drive and try to go. Most emergency brakes are self adjusting. If the problem still persists, have it taken to your mechanic.

Abs, esp, brake and traction light on


Oh I have exactly the same problem right now!! Machanics are saying the back LH speed sensor is faulty however when they checked the computer there were no error codes. The braking issue has stopped but warning lights have been on constantly for three weeks now :( Its due to go back to the machanic in a few days so they can have another look.... What ended up being the problem with yours?

88 chevy C1500 dash brakelight flashing rear wheels lockup then release.


The brakelight fuse and the switch on the pedal is only for the brake lights. It should have no effect on the dash brake light. That light is to alert you that a problem exists in your braking system, not the brake lights. I think you will have to pull off the rear drums and investigate why they are locking up. Check for a leaking brake wheel cylinder that may have contaminated the brake shoes, causing them to grab and lock up. Are the shoes in good shape? Also, check the operation of the emergency brake. Maybe it is not releasing fully. The emergency brake can be adjusted on the cables somewhere underneath the truck, probably at the equalizer (where the cable for the emergency brake splits to both sides of the truck). The adjusting nut will have a lock nut tight against it to hold the adjustment. Loosen the lock nut, then turn the adjusting nut one way to loosen the cable, and the other way to tighten up the cable. You might want to loosen it up and see if that has any effect, and then tighten it once you have fixed the problem. The adjustment would be about right when the emergency brake handle or pedal locks up the rear brakes when it is depressed about halfway to nearly fully depressed.
Hope this helps you out, and good luck.

Why would my emergency brake not hold? I have installed new drums, dealer replaced cable three yrs ago and has not been tight since. I have gone back several times, and had adjustments, what else can be...


Make sure you have lots of "meat" on your brake shoes.
Emergency brakes only apply rear brakes by using shoes against the drum, that are pulled by the cable, that's attached to the emergency brake lever / pedal....and actuated by the driver.

It has to be one of those three components...may have to pull the drum and actuate the pedal / lever to see if the cable spreads the shoes and make adjustments from there.

If your back brakes don't hold...it can also cause the ABS light to illuminate...

Hope this helps...

Loud squeaky noise from front tires when turning and somtimes whe


Hi my name is Tom and I can help you.

Driving with your emergency brake on is only going to affect your rear brakes. There is a cable running from the emergency brake lever to your rear brakes.

You did not say how long you drove with the emergency brake on, but even a short distance and you forced the front brakes to do the work of stopping the car. This causes overuse which translates to heat. When the brakes over heat they "fade" and do not stop the car effectively.

In addition the heavy load of doing all the stopping causes the brakes not to realign. Therefore, when you go around corners the brakes pads will rub against the rotors.

I would suggest you get the brakes looked at or look at them yourself. I can help you do the job but I would need to talk to you directly. Let me know what I can do to help.

Tighting an emergency brake


I believe the 94 Sunbird's have rear emergency brakes. The rear brakes are drum brakes and it's very hard for them to lock up but should slow the car down to a stop and hold it from moving when at a stop.
The way they work is, the emergency brake cable pulls on the one of the brake shoes to the brake drums on each side so you only have 50% of your braking power to start with.
If your brake's are not holding when it's at a stop position, the brake shoes are warn or glazed over and need to be replaced. 
You can try adjusting then by backing up a few times like say 7 times and giving it full brake application. That should adjust the brakes if the self adjusters are still working.
Good luck and hope this helps
