SOURCE: parking brake is stuck on

need to get the truck on jack stands remove the wheels and if the truck has drums you maybe able to use some PB blast because the brake cables are rusted for the emergency brakes and at the same time you can check out the condition of your shoes or pads if you get any oil on the shoes or pads use brake cleaner to clean them off

SOURCE: how do you adjust the parking brake on a 93 ford

Should be adjustments at the ends of your emergency cables that run along your the bottom of your truck frame . at the ends around the differential . loosen the nut and give it a few turns equally on both sides if theres two adjustments.

SOURCE: how can i fix my 4x4 on my 1992 ford ranger?

is it the push button style of transfer case?.first make sure that the hubs are not damaged. remove wheels and hub cap and inspect for broken pieces. if it is o.k your transfer case maynot be engaging into 4x4. i had this problem with mine and if your careful and have a bit of mechanical ability it is not bad to repair. a new motoer assembly is expensive. trust me i checked. first you remove the motor asembly from the rear of the transfer case which is held in by 2 or 3, 10 mm bolts . unplugg the wiring and put on a work bench or watever. you will see what looks like and electric motor going into a flat round piece which houses gears and also the drive that fiting to the transfer case. the cap on this worm gear can be removed by three torx bit screws. before removing the cap mark it so that the cap can be placed back in the exact position that it came apart in. i suggest using a chisel punch or some way that will not wash off if you clean it. anyways. once cap is removed you will see some electrical components inside including what look like "fingers " and a dish with copper spirals on them. with this i suggest that you just make sure that the "fingers" are clean and free of corrosion and well as the spirals. next if you look inside there you wil see what looks like a stop. or peg with a plastic rig on it if itis still there. thisis what usually fails in this system. the plastic gets hard over time and comes apart . if this stop rubber goes the motor over turns and losses track of where on the spirals the contacts are. to remedy this i used fuel hose that fit tight on the peg..... its been awhile since i did it but i believe it was 1/4 inch diameter hose. anyways just cut it to the same thickness as the peg. the carfully put all the parts back together so that they line up in the 2 wd drive position. hope that makes sense. then reinstall and test out . another quick way that wil let you know if it is an electrical issue is to puch the 4x4 button. if the light comes on then the electrical should be fine and no needto suspect the motor. if light does not come on then it could possibly be the motor... more then likley. if this seems like like gibberish keep looking online for transfer case motor rebuild. i found an excellent article with pictures as to how to do it. hope this helps

Brakes seized on ford ranger

A drum brake shoe lining may have become separated from the metal pad that holds it in place and will cause the wheel to lock. The only repair necessary is to replace the brake linings with new ones. The loose piece of brake lining, if this is the cause, will not likely cause any difficulty removing the drum.

How do you adjust the parking brake on a 1994 ford ranger,manaul trans,4wd

Start by adjusting up the rear brakes, if those are tight and you still want to tighten up the parking brake running down the driver's side, outside the frame are the parking cables. somewhere around the back of the cab/front of the bed should be a plate with 2 cables and a bolt. tighten the bolt/nut up to make the parking brake tighter
