disc brakes on back. sometimes they will stick until they get hot. sometimes will stick when they get wet. check to see about your anti brake locking system.

Make sure your useing the correct bulb and its pluged in the right way, if your sure of that, than check your ground a poor ground could do that, when there is a bad ground, it will travel thru the positive to find a ground maybe overloading it. There is a chanse it could be a bad break light switch. You can chk. that by applying the breaks for a little wile and let off and feel the switch and see if its excessively warm or hot.

SOURCE: 2000 pontiac emergency brake stuck. how do i

Are you in a Northern Climate were road salt is used during winter? The emergency brake problems I have encountered tend to be due to rust and corrosion accumulating on the wires and metal pivot points that operate the brake via the emergency handle on the center console.

Get underneath the car (chock the wheels---ALL FOUR! with bricks or large chunks of wood---be sure the car is in PARK!) and find the wire that connects to the handle of the brake---follow it to the rear brakes, and you will see a split where it goes to the L and R sides via a sliding clasp of steel that looks like a C, and has wires running over the top, and to each rear brake.

At this point, grab the wire on one side of it and PULL HARD several times, slack between pulls. Do this for each side---that should release the assembly, and the shoes from holding the drum.

After you have done this, lubricate the pivot points and the wire connection to the brake handle with TRI-FLOW (NOT WD-40)or another teflon based lubricant.

The upper break light comes on only when you push the break padde all the way and very hard, the lower break does not work at all


Sounds like you have a bad/defective brake light switch. When you apply brakes, the brake applies pressure to a switch like what is on your dryer or refrig. When it is pressed it turns on the brake lights. It is most likely defective mainly on the bottom lights and getting close to going completely out since your top still works. The mechanism inside the switch has broke or brken contact wires.

The parking brake light for my 2002 pontiac grand prix comes on and off at will. I applied the parking brake and release it stays on and the goes off and comes back on its confusing to me


Make sure you have the proper amount of break fluid in the resivor. the next time it comes on, pop the hood and unplug the connector that is going to the brake master cylinder, see if it goes out.
Report back if the light stays on. If it goes out then the fluid level sensor is bad. You can replace just the sensor, you do not need to replace the whole resivor.

How do i find the brake light fuse on my 2003 jeep grand cherokee? fuse 19 under the dashboard is antilock brakes. Is that the correct fuse?


That's for the abs system only, not the brake lights. All brake lights are not working? Check the brake light switch (aka stop light switch), which is attached to the upper brake pedal, and has a wire attached to it. If it's shot, the brake lights won't work. If this is not the problem, let me know so I can help further.

BREAKS


YOUR BRAKE ROTORS ARE WARPED/OUT OF ROUND, THEY NEED TO BE TURNED ON A METAL CUTTING MACHINE TO MAKE THEM RUN STRAIGHT AGAIN, THE BRAKE PADS WILL ALSO NEED TO BE REPLACED AT THE SAME TIME.
