Well my 97 sl2's button also flew out of the emergency brake handle. I got frustrated when i saw how much they wanted for the parts to get it fixed. But the solution was as close as my tool box. I found a forgotten tube of 5 ton epoxy resin. And since i didn't feel like spending $100,00 i took the cover off the emergency brake put epoxy gel inside the broken button put the spring on and put the plastic piece in place put on and held the button down for 10 minutes with my bare hands until set to usable strength and now it works perfectly. 97 and after all you have to do is replace the button and you're good so this solution may help you.

Get a replacement parking brake lever on ebay or at a local junkyard. 92-99 SL1 & SL2 all the same part. Most likely your cables are corroded and frozen so be prepared to get some new cables at a parts store when you go to install your replacement brake lever.

How to replace the park brake


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.

1999 Saturn SL2 - emergency brake button popped off - where can I find another button or a kit to repair the brake


Call around to local junkyards, any e-brake lever from a 96-99 SL or SW should work. There are also scavengers on ebay motors who will go out and get the part you need, saving you the trouble. Also folks selling old saturns, part by part, on your local craigslist.

Blinking Orange Exclamation Point on 04 4runner


Since your question is listed as a 1999 Saturn SL and a Toyota 4Runner, I will answer both:

1999 Saturn SL
Typically the orange exclamation point dash warning light is indicating a problem with your brakes, parking or hand brake. Check to ensure that your emergency brake is completely disengaged.
Check to ensure proper brake fluid level.
Otherwise this could be indicating a problem with the ABS system.

04 Toyota 4Runner
Low tire air pressure. Inflate to approximately 32 PSI should correct your problem.

I hope this helps.

Wiring? emergency brake light?

DASH LIGHTS


Check the emergency brake handle. When it is pulled up even one click (in my car) the brake light on the dash comes on and the daytime running lights shut off. Either the handle is up just far enough to activate the switch and not the brakes or the switch could be bad or loose.

1997 Saturn SL-2 emergency brake handle BUTTON fell out / off. Emergency brake functional, but can't leave car out of gear (manual)when vehicle is unattended. Live in flat Florida so no huge deal.
