The brake pads are actually shoes. The emergency brake relies on the rear brake shoes being applied by tension on the emergency brake cable against the rear drums to hold the car stationary. In other words, the rear brakes double as the emergency (parking) brakes.

how to adjust the emergency brake
It might be a dodge intrepid. The 1967 Dodge Charger had one long tail/brake light .
The rear brakes of the Caravan are adjusted automatically. Each time you set the emergency brake slack will be taken up. You can speed up this readjustment while parked, engine off, by "pumping" the emergency brake while pulling out the brake release. Adjustment may take some time as the slack takeup is small with each use of the emergency brake. A good habit is to use the emergency brake at least twice a day to avoid a low parking brake pedal.
