SOURCE: parking brake pedal goes to floor

The parking brake cables may be stretched and in need of adjustment. Follow the cables along to a nut. Then you can tighten the adjusters up on both sides until you have the proper tension. Also make certain none of the brackets are bent or broken that the cables ride through.

SOURCE: dashboard brake light stays on, 1990 Suburban

Most likely. Usually what happens to mine, is the wires to the sensors get broken from stones hitting them. i splice them back together and they are good for a while. Or the sensors get dirty.

My 97 chevy lumina recently started to idle high it will actually drive itself shifts hard and not into every year and only my right front brake works

The high idle problem could be a stuck idle air control valve or a major vac leak. Something like the vac hose going to the power brake booster for example.
The computer controls idle speed with the idle air control valve.
Extra air may be entering the intake beyond that control valve.

1998 chevy blazer when we replaced brake booster and now it will not shift out of park whenits started

Not sure I am following your question, or maybe questions.
If you can not shift out of park with the key on, the brake switch on the pedal may be faulty or out of adjustment.
If the warning light is on, it could be the fluid level sensor in the master cylinder, or the parking brake switch.
If you have no brakes after you try bleeding the master cylinder, the rod inside the booster may not be connected correctly. If you replaced the master cylinder along with the booster, you would need to bench bleed the master before installing it in the truck.

We have a 97 chevy Z71 and we took the driver seat out because the metal was broke under it and after welding it and replacing it back into the truck now we cant get the truck out of park.Tried turning the...

If you are parked on any kind of hill or slope, more than likely you have what is sometimes called "park lock." The only real way to do this is have someone in the drivers seat and one or two people rocking the vehicle. Do not apply the brake until you are able to move the vehicle into neutral. Once in neutral, apply the brake and start your vehicle.

Brake lights won't come on after changing brake booster on 97 gmc 1500. Also won't shift into gear.

check for a bad brake light fuse! if not the fuse, the brake light switch operates brake lights and if bad you will not be able to shift it out of park, as well as the brake lights not coming on.! because you have to put foot on brake to do so. if bad switch, it wont let it out of park. it could be just out of adjustment also!! good-day !

1998 chevy 1500k truck will not shift out of park when it does it drives and shifts fine.

Check brake light switch. When brake pedal is pushed to take shift lever out of park,switch sends current to a magnetic lock on steering column to release from park.
I have a 97 Z71 that had the same problem. I put on a new brake light switch and it took care of my problem.
