After breaking the connector between the front parking brake cable and the intermediate cable, the cable is about an inch and a half too short to replace the connector. There is no adjuster anywhere in any of the cables. I assume there is an adjuster in the foot pedal assembly, but I can't figure it out.
All three cables are free, and the lever on the calipers are free and working properly.
All worked well until the connector broke.
My car is a 2001 Buick LeSabre.
Please tell me how to get the cable length adjusted.

neither the drivers or passenger side seat heaters will work anymore.

It runs good don't use oil but the service engine light comes on at times it start to trying to die don't want to go at all, like the tansmission shifts to lower gear. Once it quit and would not start, the garage said it was the fuel pump and it was relaced but it is doing the same thing again. what could it be? I can put it in netural and restart it and the light goes off and it goes on.

it just happened

a service message stating "service stability system" appeared on dash, after stopping and restarting the car the message is gone. I was driving using cruise control at the time of the message.

What needs to be done to service it? a dealership said bring in the car and they would need to diagnose the problem at a cost of $100-$150, sounds very high for looking and reading some codes.

just wondering if im higher then the high mark about an inch can that be bad for my tranny? thanks

I had my 2002 buick lesabre tuned-up last Friday. Today, it took 2 times to start the car. When I filled up with gas, it wouldn't start the first time and then on the second time, it sounded like a back fire and then started, but idles very rough and at times there is a whistling noice from back of engine.

After getting my oil changed today, the shop told me that my steering gear needed complete removal and installation due to the rack & pinon leaking at a cost of $981. There were also two other estimates---one for the valve cover seaping (not too badly) at $259 and another for a right inner axle leak of $232. On the $981 repair, they said that the fluid level needed to be monitored until fixed (which sounded correct) or I could loose all steering which was the most serious of the three repairs. Does any or all three of the estimates sound about right or not? I'm not mechanically savy so your help and input would be much appreciated in my situation. My car has about 75,400 miles on it and I'm beginning to wonder if the time has come to get something else by now. I bought my Buick new and up to now it has been pretty much trouble-free, other than the usual repairs/maintenance issues, but then on the other hand I don't want to be throwing my hard-earned cash into a "money pit". Does it seem like its come to that point now or not yet? Thanks for your help.

sluggish seems the best word to describe it

First time car wouldnt start.It's narrowed to the fuel filter,fuel pump&/or injection.Is there a reset button? Fuse's can be a reset button.

I have a 1990 Buick lesabre when I press the gas it acts as if it doesnt want to go it only goes maybe 25...what may be wrong with it..

brakes won't release when care is running, but will release when the car is turned off. How do I fix this?

I can feel the roughness thru the steering wheel the worst when first leaving the house. then it is much less of a noise or feel the rest of the day. I can't feel this when I make a right turn. I have had all parts replaced on the front end of the Buick Lasabre. Took it to the dealer and they wanted to replace the whole power steering rack. Could it be just the power steering pump, since there are no leaks anywhere?

Were told by Brakemasters that our car has "a small coolant leak". Upon further questioning re: a/c factor-- were told that it has to do with the engine. They will need to remove parts to see where this leak is coming from.
