The parking brakes unlock automaticly when shifted into gear. If it is not working the actuator for the release is at fault. It is located ablove the parking brake pedal. The part is not that expensive as well at any Cadillac dealer

Anti lock brakes engage once in a while on2003 mazda tribute


Might have a bad brake switch, do you have any codes in ABS ? Does this happen when the vehicle is running and parked ? Do the brake lights stay on ?

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!
