Parking brake is stuck on and car won't move.


hoq long has the parking brake been on? it may be rusted in place...usually if it is you may need to replace the parking brake cable.... but a quick fix may be remove the rubber plugs on the inside of the rear drums and use a flat screw driver to lift the adjusting lever and turn the adjusting screw gear back to release the brake shoes from the drum.... so depending on if the cableis rusty you may try wd-40 to loosen the cable? on maybe you have to replace the cable.

Parking brake stuck on


the cable is most likely rusted and stuck in position. there are two or three of them in the system. you are going to have to get under it, find them and see which one is stuck. generally you will buy a new set that has all cables in it. as they are all generally rusted together that is normal. not hard to replace but remember to run the cables through any guides provided and put some chain lube on any swivel or pinch points. if you are not up to that, you can find where the parking brake cable exits the rear brake
on either side and lube and pull and push on it until you get the cable to relax and the brake to release. do this on both sides and then disconnect the parking brake handle or pedal inside the car so no one ever sets it again. you will have no parking brake.

Sound like the the emergency/parking brake adjuster is stuck.
The S60 as well as other P2 Volvos feature what's called "drum-in-hat" rear brakes that means that inside each of the rear disc brake rotors is a tiny drum brake. The rear discs function as the service brakes and the rear drums function as the emergency/ parking brakes.


That said, the parking brake adjuster works the same way as it does on most any other vehicle with a drum brake setup.

The parking bake adjuster works only when backing up. Sound like your may be getting stuck. The "hop" you feel may just be when the obstruction comes free/loose and fully release the emergency/parking brake

When it comes to poor parking brake operation, check for contaminated or excessively worn parking brake shoes.

I am surprise the dealer did not suggest this as a possible cause. Go back to dealer or find a reputable brake shop to check this out. Both rear wheels and rotors should be removed and the parking brakes inspected. This is a lot easier and cheaper fix than it will be if the problem is in the transmission (which it could be).

Please post a comment when you find out the true cause if this or something else so I can add this to my knowledge base. J

Parking brake pedal stuck up


Possibly one of the pedal or bracket mounting bolts may have loosened up and is jammed against the pedal lever.

2005 parking brake stuck


The parking brake cable should be replaced but in the short term try getting under the truck and grabbing the cable casing and move them around to get the seized cable inside the cable casing to release keep working the cable until it releases if this doesn't work replace both cables.

Parking brake is stuck on


need to get the truck on jack stands remove the wheels and if the truck has drums you maybe able to use some PB blast because the brake cables are rusted for the emergency brakes and at the same time you can check out the condition of your shoes or pads if you get any oil on the shoes or pads use brake cleaner to clean them off
