How can I realse emergency brake if cable cutting for tahoe 2009


With an assistant, release the parking brake cable tension by pulling straight back on the intermediate cable at the cable-to-cable union until the parking brake control sector (of the brake pedal) rotates to a stop. then insert a 4mm retainer pin in the parking brake control pedal to keep it from retracting on you.
Disconnect the cable running from the brake pedal to the cable-to-cable union underneath the car.
Then replace the damaged or severed cable that controls either the left or right rear parking brake shoes.

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.

Parking brake is stuck on and car won't move.


hoq long has the parking brake been on? it may be rusted in place...usually if it is you may need to replace the parking brake cable.... but a quick fix may be remove the rubber plugs on the inside of the rear drums and use a flat screw driver to lift the adjusting lever and turn the adjusting screw gear back to release the brake shoes from the drum.... so depending on if the cableis rusty you may try wd-40 to loosen the cable? on maybe you have to replace the cable.

Parking brakes light on for oldsmobile Aurora 2001


If the cable is not too corroded you can sometimes lift it by hand so that it will trip the parking brake switch and turn off the light.I have had to replace the parking brake assembly on both of my Auroras to get the system functioning again. The cables corrode just where the first cable comes through the body and connects to the next intermediate cable. The entire brake pedal assy. needs to be replaced ($65.00) for the part.

How do I adjust the parking brake?


Loosen the cable nut at the rear brake, pull the cable until the tension is tight, then tighten the cable nut. Since the parking brake only operates on the rear brakes, your rear pads may be too worn causing the parking brake not to hold. Check the pads first to see if they need to be replaced. Also, the parking brake cable can stretch or break over time. Verify that isn't case since you may need to install a new cable rather than adjust it.
