It is manual adjustable.

The adjustment is found under the boot for the hand lever. You must remove or lift up the boot which surrounds the hand brake lever. Use a deep socket to tighten the nut on the end of the threaded shaft which is attached to the front end of the emergency brake cable. Make incremental adjustments to the cable. Test by using the hand lever after each adjustment to ensure that the emergency brake does not drag with the hand lever released.

The hand brake on this model can be adjusted from inside the car. Where the handbrake is in the center console, the plastic around it can be taken off. There is a screw on each side that needs to come out, and then from there just pull up, and twist it around and up from the parking brake. Set it aside along with the screws. On the inside you will see what looks like a long gold colored screw, t his is for the tension adjustment. Part of it should have a hex head that you can fit a wrench on. My 03 Hyundai uses a 12mm wrench. Keep turning it towards the passenger side occasionally pulling up on the hand brake to test the tension. Once the tension feels tight but not too tight that's it and you are done. You should be able to pull up on the hand brake about 3-4 clicks and that would be appropriate tension...
