1996 Chevrolet P30 with Auto Park Brake Paul Chapman 8-17-10  
I need some help with a used motor home I just purchansed. It seems the auto park brake locked, when we were working on the leveling system, and now will not unlock. Where can I get a wiring diagram of how it works?

I want it to work since it is a safety issue, but the owners manual has very little information. Is there a good manual for the chassis service?

There are 2 different systems around 95--96 there was a change
1. check your Power steering oil.older AP's used the power steering.
96-to 2003? had it's own Dextron oil tank (under neath inside the frame near the steps.holds a Qt Dextron oil.if you see Pink oil dripping -more than likely the (green switch ) is bad---ONLY CHANGE IT_DO NOT loosen the fitting it is screwed into---(switch will strip easily if you over tighten-it's) aluminum-make sure it had a O-Ring on it-Pt # =GM # 15961566.
2. are you having problems getting the shifter out of park? while your foot is on the Brake?
3.can you hear the pump running at all?

If your auto park brake actuator needs to be rebuilt, I highly recommend Jose Crespo at 305-215-8875.

I just had mines rebuilt with him and it works great, and the turnaround was extremely quickly. I'm in Alaska, he's in South FL, and I got it back in just 3 days. Give him a ring and he'll provide you shipping removal and packaging instructions.
