Often caused by low battery voltage - quick check = disconnect battery (make sure you have your radio code) leave for 10 mins then refit. follow instructions on dash board information screen. If the brake resets okay - its a battery low voltage fault - if not .......... you have a handbrake module or motor fault.
Hope this helps - good luck.

Hammer and wd40 or some Electrical terminal spray which will get into the system and under any rust formed within it.
Then use PFTE spray available from Tool shops after it is free .

Where does the pink praking brake wire go on 2003 cadillac deville go


Where are you seeing this pink wire ? I'm looking at a wiring diagram and I see a pink wire at the (RIM) rear integration module . It goes to the park brake relay A ,control side . The RIM supply's a ground on that circuit energizing the park brake relay A . There is another park brake relay - B . Are you familiar with the RIM module .
The park brake system is a mechanical and electrical system which operates on the rear disc brakes. The system is activated by depressing a foot pedal lever assembly, which sets the rear brake caliper via cables. The park brake is released by shifting the vehicle out of park or activating the manual release.

Park Brake Release
The rear integration module (RIM) controls the operation of the electric release park brake. The RIM uses serial data messages to determine if the correct conditions exist to release the park brake. The park brake is released under the following conditions:
• The engine is ON.
• The gear shift lever is not in Park or Neutral.
• The park brake switch is closed.
When all of the above conditions exist, the RIM releases the park brake by simultaneously activating the 2 park brake solenoids. After 2 seconds, the RIM deactivates solenoid A. The RIM continues to activate solenoid B while the above conditions exist, which prevents the park brake from being set.

Won,t shift out of park, no brake light , new bulbs , new brake light switch , all fuses are good ,no current at brake switch


Its hard to get any car repair info for free on the net, everyone wants to make you pay for it. One place where you can still get this info for free and in many cases get free access to online care repair manuals etc., is your local library! Check them out! They should have the Haynes or Chilton's service manuals for most cars and/or access to the online services for Chilton's/Haynes etc.

1995 Ford Escort Wagon Automatic, Won't shift


Hi there,

Most modern automatic cars require the driver to depress the brake pedal first, to allow releasing the gear out of Park.

Some automatic transmissions also provide an 'overide' switch near the gear lever, to allow manual release of the gear lever.

If neither of the above resolve this, then you will need to check the operation of your brake switch, mounted on the brake pedal.

Why won't mu 1999 honda accord's gearshift move from park when the silver button is pushed


This car has a park lock safety system that will only release the shifter if the brake pedal is pushed and the brake lights work, so first thing is to check and see if you have brake lights.

I have a passat 2006 fsi. The Parking breaks wont release after pressing the release button


I had the same problem on my Passat Variant 2007.
Randomly Park Brake won't activate and/or deactivate once button PB pressed.
The cockpit computer tells "Park Brake Error" (or something similar).
If this is your problem, the issue is very well known to VW Service centers.
I had solved it by bringing the car to the Service: The told me that they substituted the ParkBrake Button (a differently made one, even if identical on the exterior) and Reprogramming (Updating) the car computer software.

Shift lever lock won't release when brake pedal is


do the brake lights work? most of the time the problem is a broken wire at the brake light switch under the dash on the brake pedal. the ECM does not see the signal from the switch so it won't allow the car to shift from park.
