Question about 2005 Dodge Caravan
How do I adjust the emergency brake. It barely holds when fully applied.
Either the rear brakes are extremely worn or the cable has stretched.
first check the rear brakes to make sure there is plenty of pad or shoe left, then follow the parking brake cable forward and you will find a threaded rod and nut configuration where you can take slack out of the cable. some chrysler products had a small parking shoe brake inside the outer rear disc brake, make sure you are checking the right one.

Testimonial: "The rear brakes are in good shape. I agree that the cable is probably stretched because I have a steep sloped driveway and the brake is always applied"
