Erratic brake light & wiper action

Honestly dont know but I would be straight to an auto electrician. Sounds like parrallel wiring may have worn (from rubbing) and is playing havoc by activating neighbouring wires or the fuse box has a faulty circuits.

Cant engage gear when brake is depressed

Many vehicles are equipped with a safety to prevent shifting the vehicle out of park without stepping on the brake.

Check to see that the brake lights come on when the brake pedal is despressed. This should verify the proper position of the brake light switch under the dash - that is released when the pedal is operated - and the brake circuit itself. This is part of the safety circuit mentioned above.

If the brake lights do not come on, look for an open / blown fuse in the fuse box. Consult your manual for the location of the fuse and fuse box(es) and replace with the appropriate size fuse. If it is not blown, check the rest of the fuses and replace any found to be open or blown.

Good luck!

I can put my 1994 toyota tercel in gear without pushing in the clutch, what could the problems be?

Do you mean with the engine off? If so, that is normal. The clutch just allows you to disconnect from engine when it running. With the clutch released and engine running the gears are spinning all the time. When in neutral, the chain of gears to the final drive is incomplete. When you engage a gear you are completing a chain of gear connections to the wheels. If engine is running, you will grind gears untill you press clutch, making a temporary break in the chain, allowing the gears to stop spinning and you to engage one.

You can infact use 1st gear as a kind of parking brake as it holds the car from rolling (in most cases) , with engine OFF, - BUT this is not advised as the only parking brake.

When i have the key on in the park position and i hit the brake i hear a clicking noise in the gear is that normal

Yes that clicking noise is a solenoid allowing you to put your vehicle in gear. Try to gently put car in gear without stepping on brake, it shouldn't go, that solenoid is a safety item making sure you have brakes your engaged before moving.

S type jaguar parking brake warning that brake cannot be applied

Do you mean 'parking brake fault' This message can sometimes appear with low battery causing the electronic park brake to lose its calibration.
To recalibrate it disconnect your battery and leave for 10 Min's. then reconnect and with the ignition on apply the foot brake and whilst keeping applied switch the parking brake on. then release the foot brake turn ignition off - on and the handbrake fault message should be gone and the parking brake should release as you drive off.
IMPORTANT - make sure you have you radio code as you will need this after a battery disconnect.

hope this helps - good luck

My 4x4 toyota pick-up was stored for two years without running now my clutch stuck at the end i start my engine when it is engaged in first gear and it run ,i try to push on the clutch or change gear a...

Clutch system works exactly like hydraulic brake system. Check everything for leaks, make sure slave has not rusted and frozen in place and check that master cylinder is not bypassing internally. It's a good idea to bleed it out as well...fluid is hygroscopic and likely has drawn in water from the air over time (not good for system) That applies to brakes as well.

My 1999 saab 9-3 seems to have a stuck handbrake. Can I drive it? I can't move lever up or down, button does not affect the lever. I am on Eastern Shore of Md. on a Sat. of course when I find this out.

If the handbrake is stuck on, with the brakes engaged, NO you should not drive it, as the brakes will overheat, or not move at all if fully engaged. If you aren't sure if they are engaged, it's easy to test. Just put the car in gear and try to drive ahead, on a flat surface. If the car goes forward without stepping on the gas, the brake is not engaged, and you can drive it. If you give it some gas, and it feels like it's holding back, or not moving, the brake is on and it shouldn't be driven. Is the brake handle in the down position ? If so, the button to move it is probably broken, and needs to be replaced, if it is stuck in the up, or on position, try pulling up and pushing the button in at the same time, it should release. Let me know how you make out. Good luck! Curt

Transmission problem on 95 cutlass ciera

Overdrive has two important factors involving when and if it turns on besides being in the proper gear shift position. One is tthe car has to FIRST reach operating temps before it will engage the TCC ( torque converter clutch ). That could involve a faulty thermostat, or short distance drives, Second important factor WILL DISENGAGE WHEN STEPPING ON THE BRAKE PEDAL. A brake switch could be misadjusted , and without you stepping on the brake, the computer thinks you are and wont engage TCC. Hope this helps.
