Sounds like the brake linings are worn to the metal. I would take the truck to a service center for an estimate. Ask them to inspect the rear brakes and pull the drums off.

How do I install this kit HW7321 Dorman E Brake hardware no instructions

Tough question. When faced with such I usually try to find an illustrated parts breakdown somewhere online. Some parts vendors have good pictures as part of their sales materials. Also possible that the dealer has a good picture, and they are usually willing to print you a copy.

The locking mechanism sounds faulty. Try spraying the pedal assembly with some penetrating oil to see if the racheting mechanism will start working again.

1995 GMC Jimmy brake lights not working

Brake lights run through the hazzard switch. There are known problems with this, and the multifunction switch. You may need to buy a new hazzard switch and OR the multifunction switch. Before you do that, check the pigtail that goes into the brake switch up by the fender, make sure it's not shorting out up there. Happened to me!

Make sure your your wheel speed sensors have good connections at the wheel since you just did work there. You may need to bleed the brakes again for the other problem.

The emergence brake's reslease to our 2001 jimmy won't release how can we do it ourselves

Usually, the heavy cables that go to each rear wheel and operate the emergency brakes get soaked with water over the years and become rusted so that the inner cable ceases to move or becomes stuck with the brakes full on. Replace these cables to restore operation and adjust them so that braking action starts when the pedal is depressed about 1/2 way down.

1994 Jimmy - Rear brakes are dominating after brake job

You need to bleed the whole system. Once this is done it should work better. Make sure you are not low on brake fluid. If the front brakes are disk brakes and the rear are drum breaks, the front really does most of the stopping, the back jjust keeps the car from spinning or swaying. But the main stopping power is in the front breaks. They need to be bled correctly, make sure brake fluid is up and make sure emergency break is not engaged. The emergency break uses a lever and cable to activate the rear brakes. The emergency breaks don't run off brake fluid...

please give good ratings, they are very important...

How do I reinstall the parking brakes on my 2001 GMC Jimmy.

hi from the uk not too conversant with your model ? BUT here in uk the same type of rear calipers for hydraulic disc brakes and a seperate set of brake shoes operate the park brake/s which is internal of the rotor ?? thebrake shoes will have an adjuster manually adjustment when rotor/drum is in place ? so if you look at the area between the top of shoes you may see a threaded rod with a serrated round wheel which when turned on thread will move shoes out one way and in the other ? so to fit rotor you must rotate this wheel so shoes close up enableing to fit rotor/drum over shoes easily ? then secure rotor with screws?? if fitted then you adjust ppark brake shoes by turning with a flat screwdriver via a hole which is/should? be in rotor and will turn in line with this adjuster? tighten brake on then turn back notch by notch till rotor turns free or just? do this b4 you fit the disc pads then repeat on other brake assy on other side? re assemble discpads and pump brakes till hard this then leaves the park brake cable to adjust if req'd if so pull p/brake it should come up approx 4 or 5 clicks to fully lock of brake this allows for what is known as reserve travel left on cable to apply as brake shoes wear ok? hope this helps?

Parking or emergency Brake problem

Check the hardware for the drum emergency brake inside the the rear disc brakes, these pads are for your emergency brake, there should be an adjustment bolt that just sits between the two pads. Also, check the cables running to this set of pads to make sure they were connected properly. After you have checked the drum emergency brake, follow the cables in the undercarriage and look for the point at which they combine to another single cable, this is the point where the actual cable pressure adjustment is located.

2000 gmc jimmy brake lights

I had the same problem with my 2001. I found it was the multi function switch. Better known as your turn signal switch. I found that the hazard switch portion of it had shorted. replacement is fairly easy, aftermarket part is available, much cheaper than GM.
