the lockout is broken. a tech probably bound it up and broke it.


Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.

the parking brake probably isn't adjusted correctly either.

Take it back to the shop that worked on it, or, if you can afford it, take it to a dealer, and have the car fixed correctly for less headaches.

Some small shops will damage things purposefully to keep you coming back, again and again . . . Not ALL small shops, and if you find a good one, that's super - i got a lot of referrals to a great shop in fayetteville that did great work . . .

but another shop tried telling me I needed all new calipers, etc., not knowing I know how to work on and fix cars . . . I played dumb, and took it to the dealer, who confirmed I just needed pads. (I couldn't work on my car in my apartment complex).

But all of that going wrong after 1 visit, to me, means something's up.

That doesn't make any sense - Why they would be messing around with your transmission cables while changing your brakes?

Sounds kind of fishy if you ask me...
