Hey Andy=I presume the handle will release the brake but the rear wheels still won't move. The problem is that rear shoes rust to the drums when you run through water or if your car sits a long time in humid weather. Sometimes it is hard to get them unstuck.You may have to take the wheels off and beat on the drums to get them off. Once they are off sand the drums and shoes. If the handle wont release the brake cable, you just have to find out why the release mechanism malfunctions. goodluckJoe

I just tried that and Had great success. I did not even have to remove the rim. Just tap a couple times on the outside of the wheel you will see the rust fall out (or at least I did) and tada! car moved after a couple momentum pushes (let the car rock back and forth so you do less work). If you try this first you will avoid having a mechanic take you for a ride just to whack the rims a couple of times.

Check the brake switch under your pedal (which needs to be pushed when the brake pedal is depressed). This is what the problem was on my friends Sentra. As long as you have checked the lights and fuses, this should do it.
