Sometimes lubing the cable around any braces and connections then letting it soak in can loosen a ceased cable. A product such as WD40 has a good penetration value for such practice and there are others. Soak it with one of these type fluids. If that does not loosen it you\'ll have to replace the cable.

How do you get the E brake off?


I don't know if I can explain this correctly but I'll try. Some cars that have a foot peddle that activates the emergency brake when foot peddle is compressed. If there is not a brake release handle directly above the peddle, it might have a kind of spring release. Try pressing down on the peddle hard and then move your foot off and out of the way and it might spring back and release that way.

Emergency brake light stays on the dash. is it a troubleshooting light?


It probably indicates that the cable is not being fully retracted when brake is disengaged. Spray as much of cable as possible with WD-40, allow to sit for a few hours, the engage and disengage the brake several times untill it loosens. If this fails the cable may be stretched and needs to be replaced.

Emergency brake stuck, pedal release broken


What happens is the brake cables rust inside the cable sheath and then they won't slide easily. There's no good fix for this other than replacement. It's not easy to even find where they are stuck.It might be possible to find the end of the cables at the back wheels and pull the cables back---to release the tension

Emergency brake stuck


To fix this, you'll need a flat-head screwdriver and climb under the steering wheel/dash. Be careful that you face is not near the pedal assembly. You will see a metal cog that is holding the pedal assembly. Carefully, insert the screwdriver in to the cog assembly and carefully wiggle the blad tip. This should "trip" the assembly allowing the pedal to retract.

What model car? On my Cadillac the problem was the vacuum line to the release valve at the parking brake pedal. The problem can be the vacuum line, the release valve or the vacuum actuator for that release valve. Mine was on the steering column.
