92 Suzuki Sidekick stuck in park-where do i find the magical switch or pin that will let me shift out of park that everyone is talking about?


why do other say to replace the most hard and expensive part first.
wow, what bad advice, !!!
yes, the shifter has the bypass, lever. see link. below and photo.
now the facts: (from easy and cheap to harder)
1: brake lamps dead, (both)
2: brake lamp switch dead.
3: wiper fuse blown causing park lock relay to be dead.
4: park lockout relay , bad.
5: PRNDL switch bad, in park. or cable snapped .
if bypass works, then the cable is not snapped, trans works,. see?
6: last the solenoid can be bad. (only if 12vdc makes it here)
(notice no lies or guessing)

randy, we had 3 of these cars , you zero.

magic and this photo is in your operators guide, in all sidekicks up to 1998 at least.

89-98. with A/t

How to release the parking brake when the parking brake release cable is broken?


Your parking brake cable is connected at one end to the release handle and the other end to the pedal ratchet mechanism. If you get your head under the dash you should be able to see where the cable used to attach and pull the lever with your hand or pair of pliers to get the pedal to release. You might have to remove a trim panel to get to it, but it is possible to do.

Jetta parking brake


Your car should have an E-brake engage/release lever. Please inspect the push button on the end of the lever. Does the button depress and release correctly? My guess is that the lever needs to be repaired or replaced. Maybe the internal spring has broke and the button wont release. If the button doesn't release, the ratchet wont engage. Write back and let me know what you found or if you have other questions, good luck.

How do i replace the parking brake lever on a 2000 pontiac grandam


I have the same problem, the brake works but the lever will not lock in the up position. The ratchet and pawl seems to be stuck in the release position, I went to this site and the mechanic stated that the lever should be replaced, apparently there are no replacement parts, you have to buy the whole assembly. I'm still trying to find a lever assembly at a reasonable price.

Parking brake wont stay engaged on 2000 s10


Do you mean that the parking brake works when you press the pedal down but the pedal does not STAY down? If this is the case, you should look at the parking brake mechanism to make sure that the lever that releases the brake is not stuck (the release cable attaches to it - SEE PICTURE BELOW). You will have to remove the lower dash cover to do this. Sometimes the lever gets stuck in the "relaese" position when you pull the cable. Some spray lithium grease usually works well in getting it working again.

If the lever is not sticking, then the ratchet mechanism is dammaged and the pedal assembly will have to be replaced. The assembly is only attached to the vehicle with 3 bolts. It can be a little tricky getting the main cable disconnected fronm the old pedal assembly and connected to the new pedal assembly, but other than that it is not hard to change.

Parking brake will not hold when pedal is pushed down.if i hold the pedal down the brake works.this is on a 1992 chevy s-10


Sounds like the ratcheting mechanism is not working. Check the teeth on the mechanism near the top of the P.brake pedal. It should pivot somehow and lock on, then it releases with manual release. Should not be an expensive fix.

I released the parking brake on my 02 Chevy Tahoe and the handle (on the dash, not center console) hyper-extended and the brake would not release. I thought I would try to pull the wire with pliers but...


Hello all, this happend to my 2002 taboe as well. There is a handle under the dash below the steering column. The handle is conected via a cable to the parking brake foot mechanism. This cable is known to break. This part is available online through numerous websites for roughly 17-25 dollars, ebay has it but it goes for roughly 35 dollars. It is very easy to install with a pair of pliers and a wrench. The cable is about a foot long and comes with the release lever already installed.

Handbrake does not always work at first attempt. if you pull the handbrake up and down a few times without the button pressed eventually it catches on the ratchet and works.


Check the return spring on the parking brake lever as wll as the gear teeth:
  1. Make sure the parking brake cable is free and is not frozen or sticking. Make sure the brake shoes are properly adjusted.
  2. Raise and safely support the rear wheels.
  3. Apply the parking brake while counting the number of notches. Check the desired parking brake stroke; it should be 7-9 notches.
  4. If adjustment is required, remove the adjusting nut cover and turn the adjusting nut located at the front of the parking brake cable.
  5. After adjustment, check there is no looseness between the adjusting nut and the parking brake lever, then tighten the locknut.
Do not adjust the parking brake too tight. If the number of notches is less than specification, the cable has been pulled too much and the automatic adjuster will fail or the brakes will drag.
  1. With the parking brake lever in the released position, turn the rear wheels to confirm that the rear brakes are not dragging.
  2. Lower the vehicle.
  3. Check that the parking brake holds the vehicle on an incline.
