Go to autozone or advance and buy new emergency brake cables and install them. no doubt they are corroded so you will have some pulling and tugging to do. if you have drum brakes get rear hardware kits with new springs. since you have to take it apart might want to put in new brake shoes while you are in there.

I just replace my rear rotors and pads for mu 2011 Subaru outback. Now my parking brake light is flashing. How to reset the brake light?


You should check your parking brake adjustment. That light means the parking brake sensor isnt aligned properly.. You might have missed the adjustment when you replaced the parking brake linkage. There is no way to reset the light without fixing the issue.

How do I replace the parking pawl on my 1998 sebring


The Parking Pawl is internal of the Transmission and the Transmission must be removed to do this repair. Someone put the car into PARK when it was not at a COMPLETE STOP.

The Parking Brake can be adjusted or you can have the REAR BRAKES redone and have them properly adjust the Parking Brakes.

Adjust parking cable 99 dodge dakota -drum brakes


Unless you have replaced the cable, it should never need to be adjusted. If you can reach under the vehicle, and when wiggling the parking brake cable, if it is taut (not sagging), then it is probably adjusted properly. What usually causes the parking brake cable to appear mis-adjusted (the parking brake won't hold the vehicle), is that the self-adjusters in the rear drum brakes are not working properly. This is bad because it means that you are not getting proper braking from the rear brakes as well as having the parking brake issue. This can cause premature wear to the front disc brake pads/rotors and affect braking power and control under certain stopping conditions. Front disc brakes work so well that many people never realize that their rear brakes aren't doing their fair share. The purpose of the self-adjusters in the drum brakes is to keep the rear brake shoes at a consistent distance from the drum's inner surface as the shoe lining wears down. If the adjuster works correctly, the parking brake will always stay in adjustment. You CAN adjust the parking brake cable, but if the problem is actually with the self-adjuster, you are masking the real problem, and later on when you need to replace the rear brake shoes, you will find it impossible to put the drum back on over the shoes as the parking brake will have the shoes pushed out too far. Have a mechanic check out the self-adjuster mechanism. It is always a good idea whenever you replace the rear brake shoes to replace all the rear brake hardware as well. You don't replace rear brakes nearly as often as the front ones, and the cost of the hardware is minimal in relation to the satisfaction of knowing that non-corroded parts will work better and provide longer service than the older, gummed-up and rusted hardware that is currently installed.

How to trouble shoot the brake system?


To trouble shoot the brake system you have to check:AntiLock Brake System ABS:
Hydraulic Modulator
Basically this unit holds steady or bleeds off pressure in brake line, as necessary, when the Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM) detects an abnormal deceleration in the speed of the wheel. On 2000 and later models the EBCM and Brake Pressure Modulator Valve (BPMV) are mounted on a bracket attached on the left strut tower.
Wheel Speed Sensors, brake fluid level, brake hoses and lines, inspect and replacement, Brake hydraulic system-bleeding, Brake light switch, check, adjustment and replacement.
Disk brake caliper, disk brake pads, drum brake shoes, master cylinder, master cylinder reservoir, O-rings replacement, parking brake adjustment, parking brake cables inspect and replacement, parking brake shoes-replacement, power brake booster, check or replacement, wheel cylinder inspect and replace.

Parking Brake Fault light is coming on? I reset the battery and it keeps coming on. It starts with the "apply parking brake" light and then when you take off, it goes to a parking brake fault? Please...


This is a common fault often caused by low battery voltage, before you start taking expensive actions with the park brake modules etc get your battery checked for 100% efficiency.
Hope this helps, good luck.

Parking brake on my 01 kia rio(standard) no longer holds


parking brakes are adjusted at and with the rear brakes,..(drum brakes that is),.....as you adjust the rear brakes to have a slight drag as you spin tire, the parking brake is adjusted at the same time,...they work together with that one adjuster,....as you pull on the parking brake, it makes the brake shoes spread apart just as they do when you push the brake peddle,..by adjusting the rears you'll also find that the brake peddle feels better too.
