How do I release an engaged parking brake when the cable I usually pull to release the brake is broken?


I should have disengaged when it broke if not it is jammed some where and not releasing so raise the rear and follow the brake cable to the rear axle and remove cable try rotating wheels if no joy remove wheels and tap brake drums and try rotating drums if still no joy try stripping brake system down on rear axles to free up internals

ABS light stays on if car is started with parking brake engaged.


The ABS light illuminates when there is an "out of specification" condition. From your description, it sounds like your parking brake cable may require tightening, or there may be an issue where the rear brakes are not properly releasing when the parking brake is released. With car that is nearly 20 years old, it is not inconceivable that the rear brakes and parking brake assembly may require regular service.

A good first step would be to have error codes read out by a local mechanic or auto parts store. This may give you a better indication of the specific problem. In any case, ANY brake warning should be taken VERY SERIOUSLY and corrected IMMEDIATELY, as you may have a potentially dangerous potential of catastrophic brake failure. PLEASE GET THE ISSUE FIXED RIGHT AWAY!

Parking Brake Light won't turn off, Cruise Control won't engage


Get down and look at parking brake assembly, If you see an electrical connector, unplug it, see if that helps? If it doesn't help or causes other issues just plug it back in.
Of course that isn't the proper fix. If something wrong with parking brake assembly, get it checked out.

1500 parking brakes wont disengage


This may sound like a silly answer, but, how often did you use your parking brake previously?
Parking brake cables tend to rust inside the sheath if they are not used very often.
When you apply the parking brake, you use a fair amount of physical force to engage the park brake.
If you do not use your parking brake very often, the inside of the cable may be rusted enough that when you release the park brake, the cable will not release (cable will not slide inside the sheath), as there is only the pressure of the brake shoe return springs disengage the park brake.

Parking brake light keeps fashing on and off and at the sametime the day time lights flash as well.


The daytime running lights go off when the parking/emergency brake is engaged. There is a switch located on the parking brake lever to tell the car the parking brake is on. It sounds like that switch is intermittently indicating the brake is on. Make sure the lever is all the way disengaged. Move it up and down, jiggle it to see if you can get the light to go on/off. If the lever is disengaged you probably have a bad switch or bad wiring to the switch.

Can i disable the headlights on in the daytime on my 2000 suzuki gran vitara, i am going through headlight bulbs very often and they are 20 dollars a pop.


They only activate when the car is in gear and the parking brake is disengaged. find the grounding wire off the parking brake lever and break the ground when brake is disengaged, you may also lose you parking brake warning light. Not sure if it's on a seperate circuit or not.

Parking brake disengaged but car acts like it is still engaged and will not move when put into gear and there is a light burning smell. It has a manual transmissin.


Although you've released the parking brake, inside the car, are you sure the cable moved and disengaged the rear brakes ? A physical removal of the rear wheels will be required and parking brake cable and linkage operation inspected. If the cable appears to be a BINDING , a heavy dose of WD-40 will cure it. Hope this helps

2008 cobalt daytime running lights not working


Check to make sure your parking brake is not partially engaged. If the parking brake is engaged even to one click off from the released position the DRL module will be disengaged. Also there may be a problem with the parking brake position sensor which is responsible for determining if the parking brake is partially engaged.
