View Full Version : Emergency Brake

04-20-2010, 08:15 PM
I assume the emergency brake is supposed to lock up the rear tires, completely at some point. My E-brake never locks up. I mean, it tight enough to hold the car at any angle, but when the car's in motion, it is unable to lock the rears up no matter how hard I pull. My experience with most other cars is that the rears lock up completely.

Anyone have any input on this?

thats not the purpose of the e-brake...

you are fine...you dont need it to lock the rear wheels while in motion

or new bulb?? I would say pull your gauge cluster out and check the bulb. Its a whole hell of a lot easier than ripping apart your center console and hand brake out.

The Ebrake switch may have been disconnected.
