SOURCE: emergency break cable broke on 2004 silverado

I had the same problem on my 2003. Open the driver door all the way. Get on your knees just outside the door. Follow the plastic tub that holds the parking brake release cable inside the truck. Start from the release lever and follow to the end of the tube. There will be a metal lever that the cable was attached to before it broke. You have to pull that lever with your hand to release the parking brake. Very Important!!!...Hold the parking brake activation pedal with your other hand when you release the brake. Let the pedal out slowly when you pull the metal release lever. The pedal will come back very fast and you could injure yourself if you are not careful. Good luck!

SOURCE: how do you release emergency brake 94 dodge

either there is a release handle or you may have to press the pedal down further and it should auto-release. Are you up north? salt? rusty cars? if the pedal is UP but the brakes are still applied, then the cables are rusted /siezed and you will need new cables and rear brake service to have brakes again.

If it broke it should have released itself, the system is a simple cabel pully system, if its broken the cable cant have the tension to keep the brake engadged. if you want to release the handel pull the release and physicaly move the pedal.

How can I tell if my emergency brake is damaged on my rear caliper on a 2005 Chevy Malibu maxx


Remove the wheel and have someone depress the e-brake while observing cable operation. The cable should pull the brake arm on the caliper and release the arm when the e-brake pedal is released.

How to change parking brakes on 2003 dodge ram


  • 1 Determine which type of emergency brakes your Dodge Ram will need. Emergency brakes typically function by activating the regular braking system on the driving wheels. The emergency brakes for the Dodge Ram have used rear disc brakes since 2001.
  • 2 Release the parking brake pedal completely and raise your vehicle. Remove the tire and wheel with a socket wrench and disconnect the brake caliper from the caliper adapter. Slide the rotor from the axle shaft.
  • 3 Install the new brake rotor onto the axle shaft and complete the installation by reversing the removal steps.
  • 4 Tighten the wheel mounting nuts in the proper sequence with a torque wrench until the nuts are torqued to 47.5 foot/pounds Repeat the tightening sequence to torque the nuts to 95 foot/pounds.
  • 5 Apply and release the park brake pedal to seat and adjust the parking brake cables. Road test the vehicle to ensure the vehicle's brake system is functioning.
  • 6 Place tool C-3919 or the equivalent over the park brake shoes and use the star wheel adjuster to lower the park brake shoes until the lining just touches the jaws on the tool.

    Replacing caliper on 1997 sable, how do I disconnect emergency brake line from caliper?


    The cables usually use a groove and hook system where the Emergency brake cables slide into the hook of the fixture on the Caliper. The assembly must be turned almost 90 degrees to slip the fixture into and out of the channel.

    pull on the brake release if you haven`t done so yet it they are still on then have someone pull on the e-brake cable when pulling on the brakes release if they release then you can try to lube the cables to free them up or find which of the cables are seized and replace them.you could have the pivots that move when applying the e-brake siezed at the arm that attaches to the brake shoes/caliper on the rear brakes that you will have to take apart and free up and lube.just some suggestions.

    My 2000 Lincoln town car is jerking and my check traction light is coming on my car will stall out but i can start it back up


    If you have a switch for the traction control, the stalling of the engine can be reduced or eliminated by turning off the traction control.

    The traction control probably has debris inside the rear emergency brakes. The traction control works by counting the speed of each wheel. When the part that counts the speed is blocked with debris, it thinks one wheel is slipping and kills the engine and applies the rear brake to the fastest spinning side.

    The motor is suppose to lose rpm until the wheelspin is stopped. Then the motor is suppose to run normally. If the motor is completely dying you have a terrible problem with the sensor on the rear wheels.

    The Traction control needs to be looked at, some Brake shops may be able to fix it. A dealer would have the tools. There should be nothing wrong with the engine, its suppose to react to the sensors.

    Emergency brake will not work after new shoes have been replaced. foot peddle will not set brake.


    It sounds like the shoes weren't adjusted correctly or the e-brake cables weren't hooked up right. If you have no tension at all when setting the parking brake, the cables might me off the arm or possibly broken. If there is a little tension when setting the brake try readjusting the shoes.

    2004 honda crv brake won't release


    Your emergency brake is a mechanical brake system that is indipendant of the regular hydrolic system. If the red brake light on the dash is on make sure it's the emerg. brake and not a problem with the fluid level or the calapers sticking. the best way to check the emerg. brake is to rase both rear wheels off the ground and spin them. If they spin, the emerg. brake is not locked up. If they don't spin, take the rear tires off and the brake drums. (you may have rear disk brakes.) check the springs to insure they are all hooked up properly. If there is no problem there, follow the parking brake cable to check for damage. The cable is like a brake cable on a bike, If the inner cable is binding inside the cable sleeve,the brake wont release. If you have rear disc, it's probly a bad calaper.The park brake cable is attached to the calapers. Rember if it wont run it's annoying but if it won't stop, it's deadly. DON"T experiment with brakes!!! If in doubt, take it to a pro.

    MY EMERGENCY BRAKE IS STUCK WHEN I DRIVE (STD TRAN).THE HANDLE TO PULL THE BRAKE ON PULLS OUT AND BACK IN EASY AND DOESNT LET ME RELEASE THE BRAKE. ANY WAY TO FIX THIS?


    jack up the truck, remove back brake drums and loosen emergency brake hardware next to calipers.  Reassemble and lubricate all cables.
    That's it in a nut shell.
