My dealer covered this under warranty. They told me at first it was not covered and I called Chrysler direct and explained the situation and they contacted the dealer and covered everything. It is true the brake pads etc. have a 12k mile warranty but it was caused by the frozen brake cable. They replaced everything last year for me and it worked fine until this winter and it started doing it again. I don't set my parking brake at night in the winter anymore but I do use it during the day when it's above freezing. I think you have to with a diesel because it doesn't have a parking pall like the automatic trans does.I have had the same problem this winter with my 2014 Diesel. They said it was not warranty and charged me 545.00 plus labor. Also replaced my rear brakes at the same time... 26,000 miles. Extremely disgusted with my ProMaster. I have had the van in the shop at least 5 times in less than 2 years for numerous things!
Did your dealer Warranty the emergency brake / cables???
FIX FOR PROMASTER RAM 2500 PARKING BRAKE STICKING I have come across 2 of these with low miles, under 15k with this issue. The source of this issue is the linkage underneath the van, not any of the parking brake cables or brake hardware failing. The part is stupid expensive for what it is, so here is an easy fix. Grab a 13mm and 10mm 6point socket, go underneath and loosen the nuts on the linkage, spray with penetrating oil and work back and forth. (I literally had to whack it with a hammer on one of them, back and forth until it loosened up) then thread on the 13mm locknut backwards only a few threads until it won't back out by itself, and keep the 10mm locknut loose with only about 2-3 threads showing. This allows plenty of play in the linkage to un-seize and not seize up again. It is an incredibly stupid design and fails almost off the lot. Hope this helps!The promoter is back at the shop again. Rear parking brake is locking up. This van is starting to become a garage queen. New parking brake cables are ordered.
