I AM ASSUMING YOU LIVE IN A VERY COLD AREA. HERE IS WHAT HAPPNED. THE E BRAKE CABLE IS ENCLOSED IN A HOUSING. THIS HOUSING HAS ACCUMULATED QUITE A BIT OF MOISTURE IN IT AND HAS FROZEN THUS YOUR E BRAKE CAN'T RELEASE BECAUSE THE CABLE CAN'T SLIDE IN THE HOUSING. YOU WILL NEED TO GET SOME GENTLE HEAT TO THE HOUSING TO THAW IT OUT FOR THE CABLE TO SLIDE AGAIN. THE HOUSING WILL EXIT THROUGH THE FLOOR OR FIREWALL AND FOLLOW THE UNDERCARRIAGE OF YOUR VEHICLE TO THE REAR WHEELS. GOOD LUCK, STAY WARM

Emergency brake stuck to the floor


if your mechanical minded you can release it with a flat blade screw driver but it will be tight ,you need to release the tention by pushing hard on the pedal ( or use 2 people) and you will see how the ratchet locks the pedal pry up on it while you slowly lift the pedal up .

How do I release a stuck parking brake on a 02 Le Sabre


Verify that the foot pedal has returned to its off position. Lube with WD-40 all connection areas of the parking brake cable especially where it enters cable shielding. Remove rear tires, beat all around outside of brake drums to release brake springs. Remove drums, clean all spring assemblies with brake cleaner and free parking brake cable assembly with spray lube then coat with fresh grease. Replace hubs, check for proper operation, if so re install wheels.

Hello, i have a 94 dodge spirtit with a rattle on the passsengers front side when i go over bumps sometimes its not as bad when brake is applied.


try changing your brake pads...brake caliper may have play causing it to rattle due to the pads being worn down.

We have a BMW 745 Li 2003. My wife pushed the parking brake button and now the parking brake won't release when she pushes the button again


hello doc....

The emergency brake is mechanical not electrical. There is no fuse for the emergency brake. It is most likely that the brake cable leading to the rear brakes is stuck. This is quite common in vehicles with automatic transmissions because the e-brake (parking brake) is not used very often. As a result the cables get rusty and stick. It is also possible that the cable needs to be adjusted; but it is more likely that it will need to be replaced due to 7 years of exposure to road dirt, water, salt, etc. etc. etc.


You may be able to release it by putting the car in drive and then into reverse to put a little pressure on the cable. If it does release for you, still have it checked as it will lock up again. Joe

Parking brake won't release


Try pushing down on the parking brake while pulling on the release handle.Downward pressure may make the release handle easier to pull.Good luck,

Got stuck on slick icy roads twice night before last.... after the 2nd time of getting stuck my brake warning light is now stuck on... brake fluid levels are fine and brakes work fine... I drive a 94 chevy...


due to icy temperature the your brake fluid froze i suggest that you might flash the brake fluid..every 2 yrs the two thumbs up to flash your brake fluid because when it get old due the boiling point went low that can cause or losing brake in high or low temp..let me know what happen after flashing your old brake fluid
