I just changed the parking brake shoe on 2001 Youkon Denali for an
effort to pass inspection Adjusted the starwheel and testion at the
brake equalizer. Now I can push the vehicle in neutral but I can not push
in neutal with parking brake applied. The car still moves when running
in drive or reverse gears with parking brake applied.
My question is what is the test. With parking brake applied, you can not
push vehicle in neutral or car must not move when running in drive or
reverse gears. Inspection guy wants to make sure car can not be
moving in drive or reverse gears.
Also the parking brake pedal goes to floor with little foot pressure. Is
this normal. When parking brake applied, I have checked cable tension
and cables are very tight and parking brake lever behind both wheel
moves to the fully open position.
