There are a couple of things you can try if your parking brake will not hold. First, try applying and releasing the parking brake several times over. This should allow the self-adjusters to re-tension the back brakes. You may have to do this a dozen times or more. If that doesn't work, try slowly driving your car backwards several feet and then suddenly and quickly step on the brake pedal. If the parking brake still fails to hold, you may have to have the back brakes manually adjusted by a mechanic.Ê

There should be a parking brake lever above the parking brake pedal that you pull to disengage the parking brake. It depends on the type you have; if it is a pull-up lever in your center console they can give you a little trouble. Pull it up slightly and while you have upward pressure press and hold the button on the end, than it will drop.
