My install is not working and I will be taking the Equinox back to them next week. When I picked up the car the main cable was in the wrong location. It is to be centered and it was all the way to the right. They moved it over and I took it home. I then started to check to see if it works correctly and neither the main brake nor the break-away cables works.

The main cable is supposed to move freely when I either pull the cable or push the brake pedal. It does not.

The installer put the break-away cable on a bracket and then screwed this to the baseplate. The screws broke and the bracket was just hanging.

Reubenray,

Sounds like the installer did not know what he was doing and didn't bother reading the instructions.

Air in the back is what I meant.

Reubenray, I'm surprised and upset for you. It's a shame what some auto shops call service nowadays. I'm sure any competent mechanic could easily do the install. I would not be going back to them after you get this straightened out. Good luck getting this done correctly. Let us know how this ultimately turns out.
