If the cable is broken and parking/emergency brake is still ON, then they are rusted in place ! - Your emergency brake system needs urgent work.
No. The emergency brake uses the same brakes. It'll be equally ineffective.
it does that on mine becsue the brake doesnt work if ur break works its probally a short or something
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.
There are a number of things that you can have done wrong. Get a manual on your car from the parts store and it will tell you how it is supposed to work.
brake cable needs to be replaced or adjusted
Frozen cables out of adjustment
Parking brake will not release even manual will not work on 1994 cadillac deville
Pull the release handle for the e brake and then while its pulled out pull up on the pedal
If its the wheels with the emergency brake in it, possible sticking brake cable
brake switch ???
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.
