How do you adjust the parking brake on a1994 Lumina?
If the parking brake does not engage fully, the rear (shoe type) brakes need to be adjusted or replaced.
if it is stock, it is self ajusting
brakes adjust themselves automatically
There is no adjustment.
This light is for brake on/problems with the brake. Check your brake fluid level and ensure it isn't dipping below the sensor on the master brake cyllinder. I had this happen to me during winter.
should be a release lever next to the e- brake padel
Next to the parking brake paddle
There should be a lever down by the brake pedal. it will look kind of like a gear with a tab on it. that lever releases the parking brake. just be careful not to let the parking brake pedal smack you in the face....
Parking brake not adjusted properly? Frozen brake caliper?
Parking brake not fully released? Worn brake linings? Brake fluid in reservoir low (mabe a leak in system)? Bad sensor?
A stuck parking brake could be caused by several things. The brake cable that operates that brake could be stuck, or the mechanism could be stuck at the wheel. The wheel will need to be removed and the cable and emergency brake arms will have to be checked.
a likely fuel pump failure HAS THE PARKING BRAKE BEEN WORKED ON RECENTLY?= THERE IS A GROUND WIRE FOR THE FUEL PUMP SECURED TO THE PARKING BRAKE MOUNTING BOLT ON THE UPPER (DASH MOUNTED END OF THE PARKING BRAKE LEVER) IF THE NUT SECURING THE GROUND WIRE IS LOOSE THE FUEL PUMP WILL NOT OPERATE. THIS CAN BE AN INTERMITTENT PROBLEM.

Under the dash, driver seat side of the parking brake.
Under vthe back of the car between the rear wheels there is a cable. it should run from the back of each wheel to an adjustment screw. this screw is probablly rusted up really bad. by putting a wrench on the short side of the screw(driver side) and turning the nut that is on there you can adjust your brake one wway or the other. NOTE: upon adjusting my brake cable one day it snapped in half. then i went to the dealership and had it fixed.
If it is to loose when you pull the parking brake handle = tighten the bolt that is under the panel that surrounds the parking brake handle on the floor. If it's not the handle there is a wire hooked to an fork with an spring load on each rear brake fundament. Look from behind on the inside of the brake disc and see that the wire is a tight and tension loaded fit. None the above, make sure the brake pads are in recommended value (6 mm thickness of lining with the metal plate)

Best ways are if you can see exposed cable underneath the truck, go underneath and yank down on the cable as hard as you can. If the parking brake isn't needed or you just need to free the brake to move the truck and can go get it repaired if necessary, cut the cable back by the brake and the brake will release. Shouldnt cost more that 150 bucks to get a new e-brake installed.
If you mean to push them back in as when installing new brake shoes, they have to be screwed in. There is a special tools available, but in a pinch a pair of channel locks can be used.
Don't know what year model your Ranger is, but if it is between 1993-2005: The parking brake on all models is completely self-adjusting. No means of manual adjustment is provided. - Haynes Repair Manual #36071, 1993-2005 Ford Ranger Pick-ups. Also includes 1994-2005 Mazda Pick-ups, B-Series.
