No, but what does that have to do with the other?

Also, my stereo plays well and then stops, you can hear something going on.... Sounds similar to.. and then comes back on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I haven't tried anything, I �m not mechanical.

Hi, my name is***** for the wait on this question. For the parking brake malfunction you will most likely need to have the electronic parking brake actuator replaced or have the gears in the actuator replaced. There are gear kits available for repairing the actuator.

For the stereo problem you more than likely have a fault in the MOST communication ring between the audio components. When one of the components malfunctions it can cause the stereo to stop playing. You will need to have a diagnosis performed on the MOST ring to locate the malfunctioning component.

Let me know if you have any questions.
