This sounds like the cogs within the braking system are broken, If you visit you will be able to make contact and purchase a new brake repair kit that should solve the issue.

Hope this helps.

I just bought a 2008 hyosung comet and when applying the rear brake it locked up and will not pads will not release

Its usually possible to release the calliper by loosening the bleed screw to relieve pressure then carefully push the piston(s) back with a screwdriver or similar... Careful not to scratch the piston though.

Manuel Parking brake release the parking brake is stuck and we are trying to get it released how do you do it?

Foot Park Brake...
There should be a release lever(not the main release) up at the top of the park brake arm, under the dash. Its small, 1.5 to 2 inches long. I recommend using a screwdriver to "flip It", keeping your fingers and hand and your face for that matter, away from the arm. It is spring loaded and will release/move very fast. Also it could just be that someone unitentionally stepped on the pedal really hard, and it will take the same amount of foot pressure to release it while pulling on the release handle.

Hand Park Brake...
Again the same principle applies. It will take the same pressure applied to release it. Push in ******* the release while pulling up ******* the handle. This one can also be released by using a screwdriver to pop the the locking tab.

Push down the parking brake now where is the release lever

The ebrake releases automaticaly when you put it into drive, if the brake doesnt release when in drive then the vacuum release valve may be bad but theres an arm to release in manually, look under the dash where the e brake pedal is and on the side of the braket for the ebrake pedal is a small arm that will release it, good luck hope this helps,

My brake lights don't turn off, even when the engine is off.

Most vehicles brake lights work whether the engine is on or not. Check that the brake pedal is returning properly. See if there is a sensor under the dash that is engaged when pushing on the brake pedal. It may be on the pedal mechanism or on the front firewall. It may need to be pulled on. This will probably require a repair to correct the issue as it will probably happen repeatedly.

The brake button on my bugaboo chameleon is jammed and won't release therefore the brake won't work , what an i do


Your best bet is to contact for a brake assembly replacement. If the break is permanently in the 'on' position, then gently push it forward (as if to put in on) whilst pushing the white release button, this should release the mechanism. If this is still within it's warranty, see your retailer for help.,

I hope this helps.

FUSES ARE GOOD, whichfuse works on windows door locks & sunroof

go to the trunk latch release solenoid and have someone push the release while you check to see if the solenoid gets 12 volts at its connector in the trunk, make sure the parking brake is on while you do this as it will not work unless parking brake is applied (manual trans only), let me know what you find.

The automatic (vacuum) release-type is standard equipment on all vehicles. The automatic vacuum-type parking brake system contains the following features:
  • A parking brake release control motor (2A843) with mounting bracket bolted to the parking brake control .
  • The vacuum-actuated diaphragm within the parking brake release control motor which is connected by a rod to the upper end of the parking brake release vacuum hose (2B653) .
  • The parking brake release vacuum hose which connects the parking brake release control motor to the engine manifold through a vacuum release switch at the steering column tube (3514) .
  • The parking brake release control motor which is actuated to release the parking brake whenever the engine is running and the transmission is in a forward-driving gear.
  • The automatic parking brake control which has a manual release feature that releases the foot parking brake control by applying force to the parking brake control pedal in the "apply" direction to the point of initial application.
  • The parking brake control will return to the full-release position after removing the force.

Parking Brake problem

2000 S-10: brake functions properly while pedal is held down, but when I remove my foot, the brake is released.
The following is not a repair so much as a solution to the basic problem and I guess it won't pass scrutiny of any state inspection. Nevertheless, this idea may skip around the automatic pedal stop malfunction and buy you some time while a proper part replacement is arranged.
The release cable ends at the ratchet assembly by the pedal and the lever which receives it can be pushed forward before depressing the pedal thereby engaging the stop which will hold the pedal down and keep the brake engaged. There is no click, or catch evident when the release lever is moved forward and it only moves a little bit.
Not the easiest reach from the driver’s seat. Also, the release cable is likely to jump out of its place if you just reach blindly and push.
From what I've read on this site, there are some design issues with the ratchet mechanism that commonly lead to failure of the pedal stop function.
Hopefully this will help those who still want to park on a hill.
