My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

The first thing that needs done here to help locate and repair the cause here is to have the fault codes checked to see what codes are set in all computers in your vehicle.Once this has been done any codes set will need to be diagnosed to locate and repair the fault here.This needs done with a scan tool or computer plugged into your vehicle that is compatible with your vehicle.If this has already been done and you know the fault codes set with this issue post them here as this will help.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

the park brake is working. the problem is the light secondary brake is on and the alarm is beeping. the system is electric over hydraulic. is it necessary to purchase a scan tool? what happened to Gary. the pump does not appear to recycle what period will the pump hold brake disengaged. the oil appears clear with not milky. is the adjustment critical to the operation of the system if I disengage the brake and mark the cable with a sharpie and wait for it to retreat how long should the wait be. where can I see a diagram to understand why the alarm and the secondary light is incandescent
