Parking brake on

The parking brake pads are the same brake pads that stop your vehicle when you apply the brake petal. This is a mechanical system instead of a hydraulic one and so, yes, the parking break is needed in the event that the hydraulic system fails or in case you should have to change the tire. The last thing you want is to park on a hill and come out and find your vehicle at the bottom. Get it fixed at a reputable brake repair shop.
You can't reset the parking light - It shows you have a fault at that time - Cure the fault and the light will go out - I have a problem with mine - I have an intermittent fault the light only comes on when the parking brake is faulty - most of the time the lights out
driver's side , inside the car, near the parking brake.
easy. you have a faulty sensor hard, will need every sensor checked

Either your parking brake ( emergency brake ) is on or the brake fluid level in your brake master cylinder in your engine compartment is LOW
The emergency or parking brake on 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee operates a set of brake shoes inside a hub on the rear axles, this is incorporated into the disc brake setup.
I believe the obd port is located by the parking brake and just above it.
Go to your local library and find the manual
Screw the piston puck in clockwise. There is a tool for this (KN or KY) that is a box with little dowel pins to fit the slots in the caliper piston. What you are actually doing is resetting the parking brake. As the pads wear and you set the parking brake, each actuation of the parking brake foot lever ratchets the piston outward to componsate for pad wear.
there are brake shoes in the discs too . just remove the discs and you will see them. they are applied by a cable.
The red " BRAKE " light in your dash means that either your parking brake is on or the BRAKE FLUID LEVEL in your brake master cylinder in the engine compartment is LOW
Could be the brake fluid reservoir is low which would be telling you the brakes need attention. Could be parking brake not fully released
adjust the shoes
Make sure the master cylinder is full of brake fluid Make sure brake is fully released--pull on pas if it foot type or push down on handle type Remove wires from switch either under foot pad or under handle

First, verify that rear brake is adjusted properly. If drum brake, turn the each adjuster wheel (inside drum at bottom) until brake drags slightly, then back off (reverse direction) three clicks. If adjuster will not turn, repair or replace as needed. If equipped with rear disc, rear brakes auto adjust unless pads are incorrectly installed or calipers are damaged. Then, locate parking brake adjuster inline with parking brake cable. Turn adjustment until cable has some but very little tension and is not slack, but not so tight as to apply the brake.
There are 2 ways - 1) key off the vehicle off, engage the parking brake, then start the vehicle. Once the parking brake is disengaged the lights will come back on. 2) remove the DRL (daytime running lights) fuse (located in the glove box).
The 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan OBD 2 port is on lower edge of dash above parking brake pedal
There are two. one under the hood near the battery. The other is under the dash near the parking brake pedal.
With just about any automatic transmission if you park on a slope and don't set the parking brake, the car rolls downhill a little bit until the transmission locks and it can't roll any farther. This can cause the car to get stuck in park. You might have to get another car to push you slightly uphill to disengage the parking pawl within the transmission (just a couple of inches, no more.) Whenever parking on a slope you should set the parking brake first, then put the car in park.
Should be the same fuse for parking light/tail lights Should be the same fuse for parking light/tail lights Should be the same fuse for parking light/tail lights Should be the same fuse for parking light/tail lights
Brake rotors or drums need to be machined or replaced. If it causes steering wheel shaking, check front brakes. If happens when applying parking brake look to rear brake problem.
