At the bottom of the backplate is a rubber plug,pull it out
and inside is a tiny wheel you can turn with flat screwdriver or similar. Its down on both sides to move the handbrake shoes out to get a better handbrake.

Fuses keep burning out; rear lights don't come on when brakes are applied. Is there a connection between these two problems?

There is a problem with your question
from what you say the brake lights do not come on when the brakes are applied --that would most likely be a faulty brake light switch
The fuse blows when the hand brake is applied indicates a short after the hand brake switch before the brake indicator in the dash that lets you know the hand brake is applied
you say that the rear light come on when the light switch is turned on--does the fuse blow then , when the brakes are applied or only when the hand brake is applied
a clearer question with a lot of detail ( make , model year , engine size etc)will get a closer answer

Can u define hand brake

Hi Mathew:
"hand brake" is just another way to say "parking brake".
Used to be common that the parking brake was applied by hand and was a lever (example TR sports car) or a pull handle.
Most modern vehicles now have a foot pedal that you depress and then release by using your hand to pull a small lever.
Hope this helps.

There are several things that can make a hand brake stick on. It possible the cable attached to the leaver has come off it guide. There is a cable running from each rear wheel to the handbrake leaver , a inner cable running through a outer housing , chick that the inner cable is free to move back and forward . if all the cables are free to slide adjust the rear brakes and hand brake as instructions . Slacken off the hand brake cable adjustment. Jack up the rear wheals and adjust the brake shoes till the brakes lock, then back off till the wheels are free to turn. Then pull the hand brake leaver on two clicks and adjust the hand brake cable till the rear wheels just start to bind, release the hand brake leaver and check the wheels are free to turn.

I have a mitibushi lancer 1999 model.An the hand brake light wont go off ever.How can i fix this?

Are you sure it is due to the hand brake? the light will also come on for low brake fluid or due to low pressure in brake ssystem and also is the abs light on, if you have abs, a fast way to check this would be to locate the switch at the hand brake and remove the connector at the switch and if the light is still on then it is not due to hand brake.let me know, make sure the brake fluid is full and the sender in the master is good/

Hand brake does not pump brake fluid to rear disk pads.

The hand brake is not designed to pump brake fluid to the rear pads. The hand brake/emergency brake is a cable driven system with shoes in the drum that is the center of the rotor. Please do us all a favor and take your car to a reliable mechanic.
