Question about 1992 Isuzu Rodeo
The handbrake does not work at the calipers. All cables are conected and working properly. The lever on th calipers moves freely but does not engage. The foot brakes works fine. Is there an adjustment somewhere on the caliper area?
Usually the adjustment is in the cables, either at the e-brake handle or at the caliper. I don't know of an adjustment on the caliper itself. Take a look at each rear caliper and see if it looks like something is broken off or missing. Something integral to the system may have just flat out broken off.

There is an adjustment on the calliper itself, there is a capping bolt i think its a 14mm from memory(dont quote me)once you undo that,(becareful not to round it off as it is thin in height) there is an allen key bolt on the inside that can be wound in or out depending on the adjustment, in yourcase obviously wind it in to be tighter,
if this does not work its highly likely you calliper needs rebuilding sorry to say, i have issues with my handbrake also, due to its poor design i think it will always be very average
