Question what's the problem?

I have a '94 s10 chevy truck,with manual trans. I am needing to know what would cause it to lose power after releasing or setting the emergency break. Example: Once I start the truck, I power down the windows, then release the emergency break, at this time I can no longer operate the power windows and the light gages blink off and back on. After turning the car off and allowing to sit for awhile, I can then turn the truck back on inorder to close the windows. I looked at the battery cables that appear to be corrosion free and intact. I am lost! Can someone please advise me?

Typically what you're doing won't cause what you're describing.

However, if the fuse box for the truck is in close proximity to the emergency brake pedal you may be jarring a loose fuse or connection in the fuse panel when you either apply the emergency brake or quite possibly when you release it.

I would look first in the fuse panel for a possible problem.

Another possibility would be if you have a light indicator that lights when the brake is applied. It could be shorting out. Look under your dash for a switch mounted to the pedal and disconnect it to see if that makes any difference in your problem.

Hope this helps,
