Parking brake stuck


First off, I'd make sure the car was in park with the engine off and try that but I assume you already tried with it both OFF and ON. On should never work unless your foot is already fully engaged on the break. as many cars will not allow you to release the parking break unless you foot is on the break, some will not even allow it when the engine is not running, even in park. If you are running and the foot is on the break. Try SLOWLY moving backwards or forwards to disengage it since you may have pulled it a bit too far and the cable was real tight, this is easier to do when that parking break is too loose to begin with, and once the car rolled it got even tighter but moving the vehicle in the opposite direction that it rolled may loosen it enough.

If all else fails, you or a mechanic may go under the vehicle and simply loosen the cable to disengage it and then re-tighten it. Even if you are able to loosen them yourself you may want a mechanic to tightening the parking brake since is common chore for mechanics and it should not cost that much to do since it literally take only a few minutes once on the lift.

If the engine has started, the safety interlock is bad. (an electrical interlock. Or the linkages to the shift lever are bad, or the bushings on the linkage, or even problems with the shift lever pivot.

do you have to put your foot on the break in this vehicle to get it out of park normally if so you may need a new brake light switch as it may have a intermittent fault and not be sending the right signal to get the stick out of park
