My '93 Buick Park Avenue seems to think that its parking brake is
always on, whether it really is or not. The parking brake indicator
light is always on, and the alarm is always sounding off (goes "bong"
about 200 times per minute, or something like that). This used to
come and go, but it's always on now. I tested the switch mechanism on
the parking brake, and it seems to be fine. I also disconnected the
wire from the switch, just to make sure. I also pulled on the wire
some in an attempt to move it around just in case some insulation had
gotten worn off and it was being shorted to ground somewhere along the
line. Nothing has had any effect.
So, does anybody know where this wire goes? I would like to test
the signal right at the module that controls the parking brake alarm,
if I can find it. The wire disappears from sight along with a bunch
of other wires. If anyone can tell me where it goes to, I would very
much appreciate it.
Of course, the other option would be to try to find that dumb
electronic bell and disable it (gently, of course).
