Below freezing stuck parking break

The parking brake works fine but when the temp is below freezing it is "frozen" in place. If utilized before freezing temps arrive it functions fine but if the temp drops, the handle will go slack but and the rear brakes remain locked. Thank you. jb

SOURCE: shift lock parking break

ck if your brake lights are working, if not, ck the fuse. if fuse is good and brake lights work, could be problem with solenoid not unlocking the lever, there should be a bypass so you can get it into gear (small slot near shifer, put your key in there to release shifter)

How do i get brake to release

The wheel that is seized with the brake should be identified, and the car should be securely supported on a jack. The seized wheel should be removed so that the brake is visible. Gently tapping the brake with a hammer helps remove any adhesions. The cable may need to be replaced because the parking brake can become stuck due to a faulty cable or faulty calipers. The cable can rust and wear down over time.
The symptoms of a faulty emergency brake include a very heavy brake pedal, a burning smell from the front tires, and dark, dirty brake fluid. Replacing the brake fluid can also help keep the emergency brake lubricated. After going through below-freezing temperatures, the cable can freeze and remain in place even when the emergency brake handle is lowered.

Rear brakes wont release

Usually a stuck parking brake. Make sure the parking brake is disengaged then check the cable that leads to the back brakes for any tension that would keep them applied. If you are in a wintry area then they might be frozen. A small rubber mallet or small amount of heat can help break them free then.

Emergency brake is stuck on. Dayton Ohio, 16 degrees last night. was stuck on this morn.

As you can guess, don't use the [parking brake in thw winter time. If the cables are frozen, you will have to get it in a garage that is above 32 degrees to thaw them out. If it is just the brake shoes frozen to the drums, you can try rcoking back & forth from drive to reverse a few times. It will break the shoes free of the drums. If the garage is close, you can just add enough gas to get it moving the short distance to the garage. It won't hurt anything to drive 100 feet. The engine should be able to overcome the brakes. Just be a little careful.

My car will not come out of park

make sure the breake lights work 1st, if not check the brake light switch, the park position is locked until the system senses the brake is depressed, it does this through the brake light switch, if the brake lights work the park solenoid or the cable it operates is sticking or defective.
