the emergency brake pads ARE the REAR brake pads.
The only way you can completely turn off the headlights is to push in the emergency brake slightly, then start the truck and leave the emergency brake on the slightest setting, and the running lights will stay off. Obviously the brakes will be slightly engaged, but you can adjust the emergency brake so the first click doesn't engage the brakes.
Easy answer. Remove the tire, pads, calipers, and rotor. There is a screw to adjust the e-brake or parking brake.
Either your emergency brake is engaged or the brake fluid level is low in the brake master cylinder in your engine compartment
Bent of misadjusted shift linkage?
Make sure the emergency brake pedal is retracted all the way up. Or check the switch at the E brake pedal. The headlights go off on all 1999 tahoes when the emergency brake is on.
first check your brake fluid it may be low then check the switch at the emergency brake lever it may be stuck
check brake fluid in master cyclinder,make sure it is not low.also check emergency brake for being say 1/2 on or the emergency brake switch itself for out of adjustment.
There is no such thing as an "Emergency brake" in a vehicle. The PARKING BRAKE is the pedal to the far left against the edge of the driver's footwell. The handle above the pedal is the release.
Loose contacts or your sensor may be stuffed - see an auto electrician

Could be many things, but I would check if self adjuster screw is frozen or rusted, self adjuster cable is broken, or emergency brake cables are frozen.
The power distribution box ( which is " live " ) is located in the engine compartment near the brake fluid reservoir in a 1999 Ford Expedition
The brake light in your dash comes on , if the brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder in your engine compartment is LOW , and also if your emergency brake is on
Press down the button on the dashboard of your 1999 VW Cabrio in order to put the top down. There is no need to use the emergency brake, other than to keep your car from moving.
Start with: Check fuses, brake light switch (at brake pedal), check for trailer harness problems, check bulbs.
no not unless u bleed the brake system once or twice
on the parking brake theres a bolt on the inner side, screw it inwards until the adjusment is right
There might be a break in the wiring.
You start by adjusting the rear brakes after you have inspected them.
On a 1999 Ford Expedition : The fuse box is below and to the left of the steering wheel , by the brake pedal ( it has a cover on it ) Also , the Power Distribution Box ( which is " live " ) is located in the engine compartment near the brake fluid reservoir
Raise the brake up 5 clicks and raise up the car and put it on jack stands. Find the threaded rod that houses the parking brake cable under the vehicle and adjust it until the rear tires do not spin..
Everyone should have a manual, and the library should have a professional shop manual available for copies in the reference section (FOR FREE)...read up and fix 'em like the pro's...! :) Dave
If it is a hand brake then you have to go under the car and look for a cable coming out of the body. the cable will then go to a y type splitter to split to each rear wheel. There is a bolt on the splitter that you have to tighten. tighten it about 3 turns at a time and continue till it is tight enough.
On a 1999 Ford Taurus : The oil pressure warning light is just to the right of the tachometer * just above the parking brake / emergency brake , brake fluid level warning light
