P brake adjustment and key FOB ??

Any way to tighten up the parking brake on an 09? Mine is pretty sloppy and maybe grabs a hair but I wouldn’t trust it on a hill.

On a side note does anyone else notice their key FOB not working as well the dirtier your truck gets? Mine acts up every once in a while and I didn’t equate it to much until I just washed my truck and it acts normal. I had even switched remotes after my other one was doing that and I replaced the battery. I was getting ready to try the battery in this one too but was hesitant because it didn’t do anything in my other. Is the remote receiver in the windshield or something?

The shoes inside the rotors are adjustable. May need a little adjustment

Cable will feel loose till pedal pushed down. Main thing is you don’t want to overdo the adjustment or the brakes will drag just like drums.

But yes if the cable felt better before and you use the brake often it will need adjustment over time.

Soak the adjustment thread with blaster or the like. Mine was a bit stiff and it doesn't take much to change the pedal.
