Why would a 1990 Chevy S10 parking brake sensor flash even though the parking brake is off?

You might have an ABS problem or a problem with the brake master cylinder. Check the fluid level in the brake reservoir.

That's what I am asking you. How do you replace a parking brake handle on an S-10 1996 Chevy Blazer?

frist make syre your rear brakes are ajusted properly then try your parking brake

the parking brake is either sticking or the sensor is bad This could also be a warning that there is something wrong with the braking system. The light is not only for the parking brake in most vehicles.

The parking brake on a 2003 Chevy Suburban are adjusted by increasing or decreasing pressure on the spring. This is done under the vehicle, along the middle of the vehicle's frame.

It does not have a sensor, It has a switch and it is mounted just above the brake pedal.

usually the parking brake sensor is malfunctioning [or the fluid is low check this first]

Check the switch and/or make sure the parking brake pedal is all the way up if it is not that might be air in your brake lines or leak

The parking brake on these vehicles are basically self-adjusting. Fully apply and release the hand parking brake lever 4-6 times to self-adjust.

If the top won't close with the key turned to "on" or with car running and the parking brake engaged make sure the parking brake light is on. If it isn't your parking brake sensor is bad and you need to go to a shop to have it replaced. In the mean time try releasing and reengaging the parking brake a couple of times to see if you can get the sensor to trigger and the brake light to come on. If that works don't put the top down again until you get the sensor replaced. Or it might just need a new fuse.

To see a diagram of a Chevy S10 parking brake system you can visit your local auto parts store. The store will have a diagram that you can look at or will able to order you one.

Does it have abs, are there wear sensors for the pads, is your parking brake properly adjusted, is your parking brake lever switch to notify you of brake engaged making contact. What is your fluid level does it have a sensor is that sensor working, Need more info. to better understand situation.

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.

Apply your parking brake a bunch of times.
