Re: 89 jeep wrangler
Hello, We used to have this very same problem with our Mini! what you have here or havn't as the case may be is a good Earth to the Engine Starter and Battery so your cables are doing an overload job. Take an extra earth strap from engine/starter direct to battery!

The front brakes are good at 30000 mile intervals ,because they do most of the stopping power. 50 to 60000 miles is about normal on the rear brakes. The most common ailment with rear brakes is the emergency brake not releasing. The cables for the emergency brake run under the jeep ,along the frame and rust keeps them from releasing
Glad to help. Check those brake linings for any signs of burning...If they have been running too tight it is possible that they have overheated a bit. Also check the emergency brake cable for binding sometimes they get rusted up and stick.
I have a 1997 jeep wrangler with the same problem and it started when I replaced the stock radio,with an after market one. The dash/parking lights are grounded to the stock radio,so if you can find a good body ground that should fix your problem. good luck.
Hello smiversoon, My emergency brake did that too. I had it in for a clamp issue on my exhaust, and the person working on it said that it need replaced, by my honey, he said to just disconnected, I did use it anyways. So if you don't use yours just disconnect or have a new cable installed. Why it won't release I have no answer. But a good Jeep mechanic can tell you. Or if you put on Google search 05 jeep wrangler emergency brake won't release, hit search, I am sure others have similar story and a answer is not far away. Good Luck. Happy Jeepin'
