When you do get it fixed, use it or lose it. Not using your pkg brk will seize the linkage up.

Failed parking brake


a frozen shoe actuator is the most common problem; a poorly adjusted system is the second most common cause. you say that you replaced pads; did you remove the disks? your parking brake is inside the disks and it uses shoes, not pads.

Parking brakes is stuck and its not the cable


well there is a cable which rusts into the car just behind the parking brake pedal or lever. then it goes down to an adjuster which has a separate cable running from it to each back brake. the adjuster and all the cables' routing holes like to rust up with age, then the spring loaded location where the cable enters the back plate of the drum brake likes to get rusted up and freeze also. if all of those locations are moving freely then you need to pop the drum off and see what is holding the parking brake lever from moving against and opening the brake shoe. if there is no brake material left then not only do you have no parking brake, but you have little or no rear brakes to assist the front brakes in stopping the car.

    Parking Brake


    With the parking brake released go under the car and trace the parking brake cable s all the way the the rear brakes. If no problem is found jack the rear of the car up and remove the rear wheels. Remove the brake drums (you might have to insert a brake tool or screwdriver and loosten the adjustment in order to get the drums off. Inspect both brake systems for problems. If you drove through water on your last trip and the car was parked for several days the rear shoes sometimes get stuck to the drums because of rust. Water on the shoes can also cause the automatic adjustors to over tighten the shoes and adjusting the tension with the brake tool or screwdriver will correct it. Most of the time the adjustment slot is on the backplate at the bottom and has a small rectangular rubber plug you have to remove to make the adjustment. Some of the newer vehicles have the adjustment on the front of the drum and is a round hole which must be near the top to reach the adjustor.

    Parking brake disengaged but car acts like it is still engaged and will not move when put into gear and there is a light burning smell. It has a manual transmissin.


    Although you've released the parking brake, inside the car, are you sure the cable moved and disengaged the rear brakes ? A physical removal of the rear wheels will be required and parking brake cable and linkage operation inspected. If the cable appears to be a BINDING , a heavy dose of WD-40 will cure it. Hope this helps

    Adjusting Padking Brake with 4 wheel disc brakes.


    Hope this helps. This is out of the factory manual. Let me know if this works for you.
    PARKING BRAKE NOTE: Tensioner adjustment is only necessary when the tensioner, or a cable has been replaced or disconnected for service. When adjustment is necessary, perform adjustment only as described in the following procedure. This is necessary to avoid faulty park brake operation.
    1. Raise vehicle.
    2. Fully back off cable tensioner adjusting nut at equalizer to create slack in cables.
    3. Remove rear wheel/tire assemblies. Remove brake calipers and rotors.
    4. Verify park brakes are in good condition and operating properly.
    5. Verify park brake cables operate freely and are not binding, or seized.
    6. Check park brake shoe adjustment.
    7. Reinstall rotors and make sure rotors turn freely.
    8. Reinstall brake calipers. Tighten guide pin bolts to 41 n·m (30 ft.lbs.)
    9. Reinstall wheel/tire assemblies after brake shoe adjustment is complete.
    10. Lower vehicle enough for access to park brake foot pedal. Fully apply park brakes
    NOTE: Leave park brakes applied until adjustment is complete.
    1. Raise vehicle again.
    2. Mark tensioner rod 6.35 mm (1/4 in.) from edge of tensioner bracket Adjustment Mark On Cable Tensioner Rod
    3. Tighten adjusting nut at equalizer until mark on tensioner rod moves into alignment with tensioner bracket
    CAUTION: Do not loosen, or tighten the tensioner adjusting nut for any reason after completing adjustment.
    1. Lower vehicle until rear wheels are 15-20 cm (6-8 in.) off shop floor.
    2. Release park brake foot pedal and verify that rear wheels rotate freely without drag. Verify pedal returns to fully released position.
    3. Lower the vehicle
