93 gmc top kick 7500 ryder rental truck allison transmittion

The emergency brake will not stay off. It retracts to stop position after a short while, like a breaker breaks, also the cable only moves 1/2 inch , should maybe move 2 ", the push rod moves 3" at least. this is electric over hydraulic.Thanks Bud.

SOURCE: emergency brake not holding

You have to go under the truck, there are cables that are adjustable. Look on the driver side just back of the front seat location the screw adjuster is there.

1995 GMC Jimmy brake lights not working

Brake lights run through the hazzard switch. There are known problems with this, and the multifunction switch. You may need to buy a new hazzard switch and OR the multifunction switch. Before you do that, check the pigtail that goes into the brake switch up by the fender, make sure it's not shorting out up there. Happened to me!

Check your emergency brake. Make sure it isn't partially pressed in. Try unplugging the switch to the emergency brake and see if the light goes out; if it does the switch is bad.

Emergency brake light stays on the dash. is it a troubleshooting light?

It probably indicates that the cable is not being fully retracted when brake is disengaged. Spray as much of cable as possible with WD-40, allow to sit for a few hours, the engage and disengage the brake several times untill it loosens. If this fails the cable may be stretched and needs to be replaced.
