how to adjust handbrake cable

Posted by on

Answer

  • Most Helpful of 2 Answers

The handbrake adjuster is under the centre console behind the lever. If its coming too high, check that the levers at the rear brake calipers are free and moving back to their stop position - they are prone to seizing up on older or little used cars. They can usually be freed off with a bit of lube and working the lever back and forwards. If that dosn't work, unfortunately you'll need new calipers. Do not adjust the handbrake cable unless the caliper levers are at their stops as this seriously reduces handbrake efficiency!

immobilizer

Car wont start, appears to be immobilizer as when key is put in and turned nothing happens and immobilizer light indicates that the immobilizer is still active

If there is a blinking car icon with an "X" over it. This icon means the Immobilizer has been activated and hence won't allow the car to start. It could be due to a bad SCU, Start Control Unit. The SCU is actually the ignition switch on these cars.
Most of the time it's triggered by the anti-theft system..You can try this trick i learned that the dealers won't tell you...try locking and unlocking of the doors five times with the remote to reset the immobilizer and see if this helps.
Good luck..i hope this helps...please take a minute to rate me a fixya.

An engine control unit (ECU), also known as power-train control module (PCM), or engine control module (ECM) is a type of electronic control unit that determines the amount of fuel, ignition timing and other parameters an internal combustion engine needs to keep running. It does this by reading values from multidimensional performance maps (so called LUTs), using input values (e.g. engine speed) calculated from signals coming from sensor devices monitoring the engine.

VOLVO S40 DOESNT START OCCASIONALLY

SOMETIMES THE VOLVO WONT START , TURN THE KEY DOESNT CRANK LET IT SIT AWHILE THEN IT STARTS UP HAPPENS ONCE A WEEK , LIGHTS COME ON RADIO , DOESNT SEEM TO BE A DRAIN ON THE SYSTEM! CHECKED BATT TERMINALS TIGHT .
CANT SEE STARTER SEEMS TO BE IN THE FRONT OF MOTOR UNDER NEATH ENGINE MANIFOLD
DO YOU THINK ITS A LOOSE WIRE ON THE STARTER OR A BAD STARTER ?My daughter's car has the same problem. We have now replaced the starter, battery, some kind of key sensor "antenna", and something else to do with oil filter drainage in the cam shaft, and still have the problem. Just occasionally will not start up at all. Also, when it is starting, as the day goes on and it is used more, it cranks more and more when you do start it. I'd love to hear from anyone who has solved this problem because it is becoming very time-consuming.
