Check your BRAKE switch under the steering column, just where ur brake pedal resting on it when ur not stepping on it! Connection might have been disconnected or the switch needs replacement! Taah!

2009 Grand Caravan the parking brake light stays on after the parking brake is disengaged?


sounds like the parking brake arm is not returning to the fully off position. try pull the release handle and at the same time pull up on the lever. if the light goes out then its not fully returning. it could be out of adjustment or the brake cables or sticking and need to be freed up.

Parking brake light won't go off after releasing brake lever


Park brake lights normally operate by a small plunger type switch the turns off when the level or pedal is placed in the off position. Over time the spring in the lever weakens and placing the lever in the off position no longer depresses the switch. The switch can sometimes be adjusted to make better contact, or the switch bracket can be bent so the lever and switch make proper contact.

Brake light stays on after releasing parking brake pedal feels a little soft


Check the parking brake cable to make sure it is moving freely and allowing the brakes to completely release when you pull the release lever. Sometimes dirt and rust will lock the cable. In this case, the parking brake pedal will still sit on the switch even though it is unlocked because the spring can't pull it and the cable back to the off position.

Parking brake light is stuck on after releasing the brake handle. Is there a tension adjustment for the cable somewhere that can be tightened up?


of course there is. but befor you go near that...check your brake fluid. when brake fluid is low, that will cause the parking brake light to stay on.

Parkling Brake Console Light Stays On


Parking Brake Console Light Stays On The light is on because the brake fluid is low. The sensor in the brake fluid reservoir is signaling low fluid. This may be because leaking or the brake pads/shoes are worn down, so check to see if they needs replacement. In the mean time you can add brake fluid.

The Parking brake switch is activated by the brake handle. If you use a flashlight you may be able to see it next to the handle.

Parking brake cables on '99 GMC Sierra


The cable splits under the cab. One side to the right rear-one side to the left. There is an adjustment under there as well to take up any slack.
Have you repalces your rear brake shoes? As they wear out, your parking brake cable wll become slack. You need to see how much pad you have left.
