The emergency cable is not releasing fully. This is caused by lack of lubrication & a fraying cable. A little oil on the inner cable will solve this. You may have to remove the rear drums to get at the cable. Also the pull off spring on the cable may be losing it's strength & may need replacing. Good luck!

Do you have a question? or are you making a statement? Did you drive for quite a bit while leaving the e-brake engaged? if so you will probably need a new set of pads and possibly new rotors if they got too overheated.

Why my break lights won't go off?


Are you talking about the lights themselves, or the brake indicator on the dash for the parking/emergency brake? If it's the latter, the mechanism underneath is probably rusted up to the point the sprint doesn't have enough grunt to fully retract the cable after you release the parking brake. Otherwise, check the switch for the brake lights down my the brake pedal.

What would make the break lights on the outside stay on the whole time you are driving? Emergency break isnt on. 99 mercury cougar


Your brake switch is probably stuck. It is located under the dash in the cab, above the pedals. It is a chrome looking cylinder. It has a button on the end of it, when you push the break in, it releases the button. It is probably stuck.

Emergency break pedal stuck to floor, but break is disengaged


sounds like your brake cable has broken or there is something damaged in the pedal assembly.........try pulling on the release handle and move the e-brake pedal back to its off position by hand at the same time.(you may have to tie it in this position to keep it up)If that doesnt work there is a sensor on the pedal assembly that you should be able to bypass by either disconecting the wire(1 wire system) or connecting the two wires together (2 wire system)Especially if your truck is a standard the e-brake is an important safety feature,so if these steps fix the light and dinging problem you should still take the steps to have it repaired.
hope this helps.........Good Luck!
