Park brake light

Can anyone help as my local garage cant seem to fine the problem.
The park brake does not relieve itself when I pull out the leaver it seems to be sticking.
Sometimes it just comes on when I am driving , I have to pull in turn off the engine and start all over again. Any ideas the garage changed the cap what ever that was we checked the break fluid also .thanks

Hi all i have a 323 astina 2000 Rear brakes working fine. Ive got no handbrake i have tightened the. 10mm bolt at the leaver. Is there anywhere else i can tighten the cable ??


Is the cable working properly ? It could be seized along an area up to the rear brakes. You may have seized hardware at the rear brakes. Or could have worn out park brake pads or shoes. If you have sued the leaver constantly, you may have a stretched cable.

What does the button at the bottom of the auto- trans. shift leaver do ? would it click ,stay down ,turn on a led light ,change a gear map ? thanks . Tom


if memory serves its the shift lock button,it allows you to move the stick when engine is off and in park.so you can tow the car the max 35 miles @ 30mph to a local garage.

CANT SHIFT OUT OF PARK


Has to be a safty switch. Like if you have to have you foot on the brake pedal before you take it out of park. Look for a swich somewhere around the pedal, but not the brake light switch.

Gear shifter is stuck in park and is hard to push button in


Have the brake lights checked to verify they work, if they are not working the system will stay locked in park, most likely the problem is a degfective brake light switch.

Can't get my 2000 ford taurus out of park


The gear selector is locked until the system detects the brake pedal is being pressed, the brake circuit then sends a signal to the shifter release solenoid to pull a pin back and let you shift out of park, this is a safety feature required by federal law, U need to have someone see if the brake lights go on when you press the pedal, if they don't check the switch at the top of the brake pedal, if the brake lights work then the little solenoid is defective.
