Has the vehicle drum brakes? Has the brake stuck because the vehicle has been parked for a while? If yes, the linings have just stuck to the drum, sometime just reversing the car will be enough to release it. If not remove rear wheels and bang the face of the drum with a hammer, Failing that the drums will have to come off by any means. (Slide hammer). Good Luck

SOURCE: parking brake release

When you try to release it, you'll need to pull the pedal up at the same time to get it back in place.

SOURCE: Auto gear lever gets stuck in Park

Brian... i would respectfully advise you that the other site that bocon has given you is a scam.

I'm not sure if you are driving in winter conditons.... but first replace the interlock relay and see if that corrects the problem... and it should. it is indeed the interlock solenoid that will need to be replaced.

SOURCE: my parking brake is sticking

Either the switch on the lever is not adjusted or is going bad, or the return spring is weak. You could try spraying the cables where they enter the outer coverings with wd 40 or other spray lube and making sure that the cables are not hanging up as well. (good to do once in a while anyhow as maintenance)

SOURCE: My 2001 ford focus is stuck in park, stepping on

u will need to fix the brake lights, it is most likely a defective brake light switch, this switch is located at the top of the arm the brake pedal is attached to, it is easy to replace, no special tools needed

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.

Help my friends handbrake on her automatic vauxhall Mokka is stuck on how can it be released?


Parking brake Always apply parking brake firmly without operating the release button, and apply as firmly as possible on a downhill or uphill slope. To release the parking brake, pull the lever up slightly, press the release button and fully lower the lever. To reduce the operating forces of the parking brake, depress the foot brake at the same time. Control indicator R 3 85.

How do I fixed if my car hand brake stuck 2001 toyota coralla manual


There are several things that can make a hand brake stick on. It possible the cable attached to the leaver has come off it guide. There is a cable running from each rear wheel to the handbrake leaver , a inner cable running through a outer housing , chick that the inner cable is free to move back and forward . if all the cables are free to slide adjust the rear brakes and hand brake as instructions . Slacken off the hand brake cable adjustment. Jack up the rear wheals and adjust the brake shoes till the brakes lock, then back off till the wheels are free to turn. Then pull the hand brake leaver on two clicks and adjust the hand brake cable till the rear wheels just start to bind, release the hand brake leaver and check the wheels are free to turn.

Handbrake light


the cable runs along the underneath rail of the car on the left side. It is an obvious cable, like a wire type, kinda thicky. inspect that, and smooth any kinks out, possibly tighten it or perhaps a clip came out and its stretched on something foriengn. just smooth cable, do not stress because the parking break cable will re-release itself and you may want to disconnect the positive battery for a 30 second count and reconnect and the light on dash should go away permanently unkless it sticks down the road. you do not need to pull the handle so tight it experiences these situations. just gently pull up, click click type thing, make sure its engaged and you should depress brake pedal and raise handle when you go to release this parking brake, and make sure your key is in ignition, car running and then depress brake pedal with foot, as you gently pull up, depress clicker button and proceed slowly down which should dis-engage this parking brake and allow free vehicle movement to drive. good luck

Parking brake stuck


footbrake kind or handbrake lever.. spray wd40 on the cable where it enters the sheath and work it on and off.. also check the cables where they are located near the back wheels and spray these also.. they rust up and stick ..lever style e-brake has a button on the lever that must be pushed in to release..if jerked up to hard by a strong arm it will be tough to release it.. calls for 2 hands to pull up and push the button at the same time..foot brake requires pushing down while pulling the hand release and see if it works.. repost please..

I can't get my Gear Shift our of Park. The engine


Common problem.

In future, when on put it in park only AFTER the handbrake is applied. Ideally, foot brake, shift to N, apply handbrake, release foot brake, shift to park.

If the incline isn't steep have someone push car uphill while you gently move gearshift shift out of park. If its a steep hill, call a tow truck and move to a level surface. The parking pawl in the transmission becomes groved over time (and sticks) unless you use the handbreak as described.

I have a 2007 Cobalt with manual transmission. I put the car in 1st, release the hand brake, and 'drive'... the car doesn't move. It has been sticky before after rain (due to rusted brake pads) but this is...


I think you are saying the rear brakes are locked up because of the parking brake is sticking? The few things to check is if the cables are pinched or rusted. The park brake release could be bad, but I havn't ever came across that. Possible rear brakes were so worn they have bonded to the drum. Try and "rock" the car. Release the park brake and 1st to reverse and see it it will get moving. Then check out all of the possible problems above. If the rears are locked up right now you will never get the drums off.

1996 Subaru Legacy L Wagon: Handbrake button is stuck in shaft.


this is generally a failure in the hand brake assembly itself.Pulling the center console will reveal the mechanism that locks the brake cable in the unit.You probably will notice its inability to hold in this area which will necessitate replacement .
