I did the same thing a couple of months ago. You can release it manually by reaching under the E-brake pedal and pulling the metal piece (don't know what its called) towards you to release the pedal...hard to describe, but feel around under the pedal and there is a thin metal piece attached that will disengage the brake if shifted....I did it myself when my handle broke off in the store parking lot.

You need to take off the back wheels and free the brake manually (you may need to use a sledge).

The brake release handle is broke and I can't get my emergency brakes to unlock


If you can remove parts under the steering wheel there are bolts that hold the break pedal mechanism in place. When it is unbolted it should be able to lower it so you can manually release it and replace the release handle. It sounds like a big job. I hope this helps.

You will need to replace the entire cable. You should be able to find this cable at your local auto parts store or dealer parts deptartment for you make of vehicle. I would start with the local auto parts stores as the cost would be lower.

Emergency brake wont release on 1997 chevy astro van, the handle pulls normally but brake is stuck down. what do i do?


You will have to manually release it. First make sure that your handle is still attached to the rod since these do sometimes have a tendency to brake, if it is broke, you just have to pull the rod by hand. If it's still intact, you will have to follow the rod to where it connects to the cables and once again, manually pull it by hand. You might have to actually follow it all the way to the back axle from underneath where the connections are made to apply pressure to set and release and make sure there isn't anything broke there. Worst case is that when you last set your e-brake, it broke inside the drums and you will have to rebuild. Hope this helps some. Good luck!

Emergency break cable broke on 2004 silverado


I had the same problem on my 2003. Open the driver door all the way. Get on your knees just outside the door. Follow the plastic tub that holds the parking brake release cable inside the truck. Start from the release lever and follow to the end of the tube. There will be a metal lever that the cable was attached to before it broke. You have to pull that lever with your hand to release the parking brake. Very Important!!!...Hold the parking brake activation pedal with your other hand when you release the brake. Let the pedal out slowly when you pull the metal release lever. The pedal will come back very fast and you could injure yourself if you are not careful. Good luck!

2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 brake release cable broke and won't release the emergency brake. I checked the brake release handle and cable and discovered a small nut like metal piece on the floor below...


Same thing happened to me on my 2000 silverado July 3, 2009.
There is a release next to the parking brake pedal. You have to reach way under the dash but it has worked for me for the last month. I have the part to fix it but haven't had the time.

Emergency Brake Cable Is Broken


Somewhat easy to replace. The part is a dealer item (purchase only from Chevrolet dealer) If you are going to do this yourself, take many photos on the progression of the job to refer back to when putting it back together. Good Luck!
