Default Brake pedal

When applying the service (wheel) brake pedal, it will not return, I have to use my foot to get it to come back. brakes work fine otherwise, Thanks! I would like to thank everyone who replied to this! The problem has been taken care of ! thanks to Zimmer4!!! I sprayed the linkage with wd=40 and added a tad of brake fluid and the service brake is like new! god Bless!

If it's the parking brake, one or both of the back cables are sticking and need replaced. Not a job for a novice.

I just did mine recently and you don't want to let it go either. Eventually, the rear brakes will drag enough that they get over heated and cooked. Been there, done that.

My wheel brake foot pedal did this for a while..I lubed the linkage, changed a front caliper and took off the master cylinder, cleaned it up and now everything is good.
