Auto parking brake

We have a 1996 Dutch Star 3450 Spartin chassis gas. No equipped with air breaks. The problem is auto park brake will not release. I'm going to start checking fuses, relays, and the switch itself. My question is would the auto light on the dash be lite if it was a fuse or really?

I've heard that the dash switches are known for going bad.

Just hope it's not the pressure sensor in the drum on the drive shaft.

Any thoughts on this problem?

Thanks so much for your help.

Manual and Automatic transmission mounted parking brakes have been applied to many types of transmissions for decades. The basic principle is the same. A pair of brake shoes are pressed into the drum. How the shoes are applied vary.

What engine & transmission combo do you have in your coach?

That would be a first for me. I thought the "Auto Park Brake" was exclusive to the "Workhorse" chassis.

Itís a BRAKE, not a break.

Sorry, but things like this drive me nuts.
