Question about 1991 Pontiac Sunbird

1 Answer

91 Pontiac Sunbird 5 speed

When I bought my car, I didn't realize that the e-brake wasn't working, the car was parked on a flat surface when I pulled it up. It didn't move, so I assumed that it worked. Without going to a repair shop and spending loads of money, could I fix this myself? Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks!

97 buick park avenue low beams off at nite

sounds familiar, I had that problem one night, started my car and the lights that are automatic didn`t come on. Well I started to check things I realized my emergency brake pedal wasn`t coming all the way up so I put the emergency brake on and then releast it and helped it come up with my foot and lo and behold my lights came on. sort of a safety feature to prevent you from putting your car in gear and going.

Sometimes the automatic transmission shift in my 91 Firebird gets stuck in park and will not shift into drive or any other position. could this be because of the shift lock solenoid failing? what other...

Could be the brake safety switch, there is an override for it, consult your owner's manual or check with the dealer for the location.
If you are parked on a grade (hill) it will put pressure on the parking pawl and make it hard to shift out of park. If you park on a non-level surface, put the parking brake on while you still have your foot on the brake in drive, then put it in park.

Tighting an emergency brake

I believe the 94 Sunbird's have rear emergency brakes. The rear brakes are drum brakes and it's very hard for them to lock up but should slow the car down to a stop and hold it from moving when at a stop.
The way they work is, the emergency brake cable pulls on the one of the brake shoes to the brake drums on each side so you only have 50% of your braking power to start with.
If your brake's are not holding when it's at a stop position, the brake shoes are warn or glazed over and need to be replaced. 
You can try adjusting then by backing up a few times like say 7 times and giving it full brake application. That should adjust the brakes if the self adjusters are still working.
Good luck and hope this helps
