Your parking brake wont hold Chevy Blazer?

There are a couple of things you can try if your parking brake will not hold. First, try applying and releasing the parking brake several times over. This should allow the self-adjusters to re-tension the back brakes. You may have to do this a dozen times or more. If that doesn't work, try slowly driving your car backwards several feet and then suddenly and quickly step on the brake pedal. If the parking brake still fails to hold, you may have to have the back brakes manually adjusted by a mechanic.Ê
