Be sure this is not a pad problem. Two ways. Easy way, Put vehicle in reverse and hit backs hard to readjust brakes. Other way, get dirty and tighten cable under vehicle.

2003 gmc envoy emergency brake light is on and there's a ding ding ding ding nouse. checked brake fluid. How do I stop the Noise or fix it


the noise is telling you the emergency brake is on (or it thinks it is) emergency brakes don't use any fluids as they are totally mechanical on your truck , id first try setting the brake and then releasing it again , if this still doesn't clear the light on then id have your mechanic look at it , might require an adjustment

id be cautious in driving it if theres any possibility that brake is dragging as this will severely overheat your brakes requiring you to replace them early

Pull up on the emergency brake pedal with your hand to see if the light will go off. If it will. there is a slack adjustment for the cable going back to the rear brakes. If it won't then the switch is bad or out of adjustment. It's located on the emergency brake pedal

How can I adjust emergency brakes


this should be a drum brake system on the rear. to adjust the parking brake, adjust the rear shoes through the baking plate to adjust your rear brakes. this will give you a more responsive pedal and a tighter parking brake. if you need a diagram, email me at iambanshee74@yahoo.com
