The cables are corroded. You will need to replace the cables. To free them up you will need to disconnect them from the parking brake levers on both rear brakes.

If the parking brake cable is stuck, it is probably rusted in place. Try squirting WD-40 into the cable itself. If not, you will have to replace the cable.

Pull real hard upwards with both hands if it's stuck like that.... you need to remove the cover and pull/push a handle that will be near and will unlock it make sure to depress the normal brake

To fix the parking brake on the Escort, you need to find the problem. Make sure that the brake control in the car is releasing, then check the cables for any kinks or sticking spots. Check the cables at the brakes to see if the mechanism is stuck.

the parking brake may be stuck and that causes the brakes to lock up completely, and the horn and lights will stick work if the parking brake is stuck.

my parking brake release did not take off the parking brake on my 2001 chevy s10? is there a way to disengage it?

A stuck parking brake could be caused by several things. The brake cable that operates that brake could be stuck, or the mechanism could be stuck at the wheel. The wheel will need to be removed and the cable and emergency brake arms will have to be checked.

If the parking brake doesn't hold my guess is the parking brake shoes are shot. Also inspect the parking brake cables, they may be stuck and in need of replacement. The parking brake is designed to hold the vehicle in a parked position and not to be used as an emergency brake to stop a vehicle.

If the parking brake pedal on your 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 is stuck to the floor, you might have broken the parking brake cable. Remove the rear tires to see if the cable is still attached and replace it as needed.

Set the parking brake before you put the shift in park when parking.Take shift out of park before releasing the parking brake when driving.

It's nothing to do with the parking brake. If you follow the brake pedal up behind the dash you with find a switch thats pushed on when when you press the brake, this will be stuck and will need easing off, i used grease on mine. I had the same problem

A stuck caliper piston. Stuck caliper slide pins. Pinched brake line/hose. Frozen/stuck parking brake cable/mechanism.

cut the cable or disconnect the cable from the calipers

Sticky or stuck brake calipers. Sticky or stuck parking brake mechanism.

Cause it Fails! Either the transmission is shot or the parking brake is stuck on.

Either (a) the parking brake is stuck in the on position, (b) there is an electrical problem, or (c) -the most likely- the fluid level is low in the master cylinder reservoir, probably because of a leak

You have to remove the brake caliper first. Then you might have to slack the parking brake. The parking brake on read disc in inside the back of the rotor. If you cannot slack the parking brake, the you will have to hit the rotor ( with a small 5 lb hammer ) to loosen it. Might take a little time if it is stuck on.
