Well if it not doing anything at 3 mph 30-40 I don’t even think the light or sound would engage hahaha. Maybe your right it might work better if the van is in reverse maybe one day I’ll forget it on see what happens.I don't mean to kick you while you are down, but calling it an "emergency" brake is a misnomer. It is really just a parking brake and as such it only really works in reverse. I guess that in an emergency it would be better than nothing, but just barely. Get your van going at 30-40 mph and step on the "emergency" brake, I think it might surprise you how little it does.
A parking brake should be able to hold a car stationary on the steepest street in San Francisco whether pointed uphill or downhill. Otherwise it's defective or misadjusted. I have experienced several new cars that couldn't pass this test, but all of them could after adjustment. There's probably a star adjuster you can turn until the P-brake shoes are nearly dragging; some manufacturers leave them set back a mile from the drum.Well if it not doing anything at 3 mph 30-40 I don’t even think the light or sound would engage hahaha.

My other vehicles automatically disengage the parking brake, so I sometimes forget in the Metris. Yes, mine pulls away as if the brake was never released. Fortunately, there is a red warning message on the display between the tach and speedo.When I forget to disengage my emergency break I am still able to pull away like if it was never applied. Is this normal anyone else with the same feeling? In my Jeep it won’t move until the break is disengage.
It’s all good. I was joking about making it to second grade I made it all the way to fifth.Wasn’t banging on ya Sadragna...went on a tirade a while back when I couldn’t edit/add to a previous post. I find it STUPID that there is a 10 minute window to edit one’s own posts. This idiotic rule should be lifted.
Maybe he ment the loner I got has the electric parking brake hahahaDammit Dichter. Stop filling these guys heads with dreams of being first class MB owners!
Sad, your advisor is an idiot (or liar). We (not Dichter) have cable operated E-brakes. When its engaged, it should be engaged. I'd ask him to point out the electrical part of it
I will let them know when I bring it in to replace the windshield washer system. I never had a vehicle with this many problems before.
