I noticed that if I force the ABS system to work by jamming on the brakes on snow or ice the ABS will pullsate. For some reason, the brake peddle came up. I don't know why.

Hand brake need tightening


Hello, the park/hand brake is suppose to be a "self adjuster" but self is usually the one that ends up making the adjustment. For rear drum brakes pop the rubber plug out of the back of each rear brake cover, and manually adjust the star-wheel with a flat-blade screwdriver to tighten up the brake shoes, don't over adjust, just a few "clicks" at a time on each side.
If you over adjust it will cause the shoes to drag on the drums. The park brake not holding indicates you have brake wear. Now would be a good time to pull the drums and inspect. There is no adjustments for rear disc brakes. Good luck, i hope this helps.

How do I reset the parking brake after replacing the rear brake pads on a 2008 Dodge Caravan?


Parking brake should be unaffected if you only changed the rear disc pads. The parking brake self adjusts every time you back up and apply the brakes if it is functioning properly.

Check this REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
(see Figures 1, 2 and 3 / click over images for zoom )

CAUTION Older brake pads or shoes may contain asbestos, which has been determined to be cancer causing agent. Never clean the brake surfaces with compressed air! Avoid inhaling any dust from any brake surface! When cleaning brake surfaces, use a commercially available brake cleaning fluid.
  1. Remove 1 / 2 of the brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoir.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the wheels.
  4. Remove the cotter pin and guide pin.

Fig. 1: Rear disc brake components

  1. Remove the caliper locating pin cover and remove the locating pin.
  2. Swing the rear disc brake caliper away from the brake rotor and anchor plate. There is no need to remove the parking brake cable or brake hose.
  3. Remove the inner and outer disc brake pads.
To install:
  1. If installing new disc brake pads, use rear caliper piston adjuster T87P-2588-A or similar tool, to rotate the rear disc brake piston clockwise, retracting the caliper piston. This will allow room for the new brake pads.
