No. you need to tighten the hand brake cable, or if the is tightened to the max already then you need to replace it with a new one.

brake fluid low will be indicated with alight when the car is switched on (the same light that is one when the handbrake is applied will stay on when the hand brake is released.

Anyways, the hand brake is cable operated. This is normal as with time the steel cable stretches since it is put under enormous stresses when engaged.

1996 f250 will not shift out of park


Could be a faulty brake light switch or solenoid for the shifter.
You may be able to shift out of park before you turn the key to the on position. Could also be a heavy load on the transmission such as parking on a steep hill.

I have a 1995 ford aerostar that park doesn't work. It says im in park on the cluster but the vehical will still roll if i dint block the tires.


Inside your transmission is a Park Band. It works like a break to hold your vehical from rolling. Most of the time this will break if you park on alot of hill and when it rolls either forward or backwards. You will have to take it to the shop to be repaired or if you know how to replace it your self. The transmission will have to come out in order to replace the band.

Ive just changed tne back breaks on my laguna now ive got no hand break


Hi There.
put the car back on axle stands and remove back wheels, check that all components are fitted correctly, (oversights are easy to do and a niusance when you realise). Unadjust the brakes and the unadjust the hand/parking brake, readjust the rear brakes so that they spin about one revolution by hand on both sides, (MAKE SURE THAT THEY ARE EQUAL ON BOTH SIDES) when you are happy with that readjust the hand/parking brake, reinstall wheels and check hand/parking again, you should now have a hand brake,, ( adjust to between 5-7 clicks ) let me know how you get on..
Good Luck.

It just stoped running


Depending on how much gas was in the tank and how steep the hill was, the fuel pump most likely started pumping air instead of gas, thereby stalling the engine.
