My toyota t100 broke down in a parking lot while i was driving. i pushed it into a parking space and put it in park and engaged the parking brake. later on that day i attempted to move my truck but when i went to release the parking brake the lever pushes in but the cable that attaches to the lever and goes to the brakes does not retract. it has alot of slack under the dash. is there a way to disengage the parking brake; so i can move my car?


Either remove the drivers side rear wheel and disconnect linkage or cut the cable from underneath (do this as a last resort... if you want to keep your emergency brake for future use, you'll have to replace the cable.) ... 1993 Toyota T100

Got a 1997 Ford Ranger 3.0 V-6 with automatic. The transmission would not shift well,the nuts on cable holder under dash were loose,the tried to adjust cable,but it would not loosen up-when I put the trans in drive and held lever in drive I could not line them up. Just put in park underneath,but now the key turns easily,but will not come out or start truck? It is tough to move the auto trans lever from park to drive,the pointer seams to be off. Any help?Thanks

I can jump start it to get it out of park and put it in nutrual but when I disconnect the cables it dies out again.

Can not put it into park. The gear shifter will operate between all gears but will not go into park. I have to start the truck in neutral. It will run in Reverse, D,D1, and D2. I have to park it with the emegency brake on and in neutral. Can it be fixed without replacing it? How would I take it apart to replace it? Thanks for your help! Kevin


Kevin - nice description of the problem - but not enough to be sure of the solution.... so this is a guess that the relay that the brake peddle operates is not energizing. Remember, when it did go into and out of Park, you had to press the brake ped ... 2000 Ford F250 Super Duty Crew Cabs

I have an '07 shelby GT with the standard mustang GT parking brake handle assembly. I purchased the handle from a Shelby GT 500 (only difference is leather covered handle vs. rubber). I have removed the console cover and have access to the 2 top bolts on the assembly and the brake light connection. There are 2 additional bolts that cannot be accessed from the top...how do I access them to remove the old and put in the new? Any tricks to unattaching and reattaching the cable? thanks for the help!

I have a 1994 chevy 1500 2WD truck that I leave it parked at a ranch for several weeks in between uses. When I put truck in drive after sitting for a few weeks, the rear left wheel will not turn.

My Chevrolet Avalanche (2002, Z71) parking brake cable broke and it seems like it should be easy to replace if I can find the right part. The cable I am referring to goes from the Parking Brake Release Handle to the floor where it disengages the floor brake. Can you help me find this or suggest a way to find the part; other than scouring the internet... I have tried that, but not sure I am finding what I need.

We have a 2005 f150 king ranch v8 5.4L with center console shifting that will not shift out of park. We moved the truck and put it in park. We changed rear brakes and rotor on the right side. We get in the truck to move it again and the shifter will not move. Tried jacking the back up again and moving the tires a little (thought they may have moved slightly taking the lugs off.) Checked owners manual to find out that it may be brake lights or the #16 fuse that is for brake shift interlock. Chec

This evening my 2001 GMC Sonoma was in 4-wheel drive. As I was backing out of a parking spot, I heard a clunk and had no brakes. I continued to back up with no brakes and then finally felt my brakes coming to. I again proceeded forward and noticed I had no brakes again, so, I placed the truck in reverse and put truck in 2-wheel drive and got my brakes back again. Is the truck just not engaging in 4-wheel driver properly?
