Clicking Emergency Brake

The hydraulic emergency brake periodically makes a clicking sound, even when the rig is shut down. Normally this doesn't cause problems but a couple of times lately, the brake won't turn off thus preventing the rig from moving. I'm driving a 1999 Pace Arrow Vision. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Which chassis do you? Chevrolet P30 with auto park? If it is try moving post into the Workhorse and Chevrolet Chassis Forum.

I have the same J71 AutoPark (version 3 with the yellow push/pull) as you. This link goes to the AutoPark library - tons of info under FAQ to get you started. Also note the link to 'oldusedbear' - he is the expert and provides free assistance.
AutoPark parking brake system help, troubleshooting, and repair

The source of the 'clicking' will be important - is it from the fuse block (left of steering wheel) or the steel box under the coach?

Power for AutoPark relay control comes from the Ignition Switch located at the bottom of the steering column. This post describes the fix for that:
