There should be a manual release. Reach up along the parking brake pedal. Ford has a manual lever that you pull toward yourself to release the parking brake. Hope this helps our with your problem. Best of luck.

Engaged parking brake with broken release cable on 1990 Chevy caprice


OK, The cable is Broken. So, What you need to do is, Folow the cable and, Release it by Hand. Please be sure That the transmission is in Park. At the end of the cable the steel wire should still be attached. To the release tab just pull the release tab or you may be able to pull the end of the broken Inter Cable. You'll need to place your, Head under the steering Column. To see the E Brake Assembly. You can't miss it.

Jetta parking brake


Your car should have an E-brake engage/release lever. Please inspect the push button on the end of the lever. Does the button depress and release correctly? My guess is that the lever needs to be repaired or replaced. Maybe the internal spring has broke and the button wont release. If the button doesn't release, the ratchet wont engage. Write back and let me know what you found or if you have other questions, good luck.

2001 pontiac grand am parking brake broken


i would say either the cable is disconnected at either end or it has broke. the easiest way to see would be to have someone work the handle by ingaging and disengaging the brake and underneth the car usually more towards the drivers is where the cable runs and by engaging it you should see it move then you can trace it in both directions and see if it is hooked up. if it is hooked up then i would say the cable has broke inside and would replace it

Broke parking brake cable. Need to release park brake to get it to shop for repairs.


You need to lower the underdash shroud. Couple 7mm nuts hold it on. Look to the left at the parking brake pedal. Follow along a black sort of tube to the end. That end will have a cable comming out of it. Follow the cable. The cable is attached to the parking brake release lever. Pull the cable or the release handle and the parking brake should release.

Parking brake cable snapped but brake is on. any


Under the dash, where the break release handle is, you'll see a lever where the release cable is/was attached to. Either push forward, or pull back this lever and it will release the parking break. BE CAREFUL the foot peddle for the parking break doesn't hit you in the face!
Mine broke on the 2nd of this month as well....

Emergency break cable broke on 2004 silverado


I had the same problem on my 2003. Open the driver door all the way. Get on your knees just outside the door. Follow the plastic tub that holds the parking brake release cable inside the truck. Start from the release lever and follow to the end of the tube. There will be a metal lever that the cable was attached to before it broke. You have to pull that lever with your hand to release the parking brake. Very Important!!!...Hold the parking brake activation pedal with your other hand when you release the brake. Let the pedal out slowly when you pull the metal release lever. The pedal will come back very fast and you could injure yourself if you are not careful. Good luck!

Something broke when I applied the emergency brake and now the brake is locked in the ON position and stuck in my driveway


Sounds like the release cable broke. Does it have a lever near the driver's side dash to release? Check the bottom of the vehicle for a length of steel cable laying on the ground. To release, try grabbing the cable with a pair of vice grips and pull toward the front of the vehicle, this should engage the release to let the parking brake off.

Parking break is loose or broken. Need to know how to tighten or repair. It seems as the weld has broken as well. It engages, but I have to pull the parking break very far


If your parking brake is loose than you have to take off your center console box. Leave the parking brake off and when you take off the box you will see the cable from the handle connecting to two cables that go to the back. You can adjust from there. If that doesn't solve it than it might be broke and you'll have to check everything
