Parking brake cables are broken, rusted or frayed. You need to replace this cables. Driving around like that will cause the rear brakes to overheat causing probably damage to rear brakes and bearings.

SOURCE: hand brake light stuck on even when hand brake

If this is a single wire with a spade then it's a grounding switch. Touch that wire to ground and see if the light goes off.

HAND BRAKE RELEASESD CAR WILLNOT MOVE


Release hand brake. Pull it again. While feeling for the normal tension have an assistant listen at the rear wheels to see if the brakes are moving and releasing when you release the hand brake. Possible causes:
-binding or stuck cable
-broken parking brake handle ratchet mechanism
-seized calipers, or if drum brakes faulty drum brake hardware/springs

Rear drum brake locked on a 1998 volkswagen jetta


You could try momentarily releasing the bleed nipple. If that frees the brake it is a hydraulic problem causing it to bind.

You might have assembled wrong and should take a look at the repair manual or compare with the other side but most commonly such problems are caused by the handbrake cable or levers not fully returning or being adjusted to tightly.

When working on a drum brake the cable adjustment should be fully released before finally fitting the drum and then the brake pedal should be pressed hard several times and then the cable readjusted and the brake checked for correct operation before fitting the wheel. Any problems then are obvious before it goes anywhere near the road.

Van will not back up or drive forward. Seems like the back end is locked up. Van started and shifted into gear, but would not move.


If you can feel the thump of the engine when you select gear I would say the trans is working, most likely I would say that your emergency brakes are locked, your rear shoes are binding with the drum. 2 causes, a frayed cable may not be allowing you to release the the brakes, or the springs are soft in the rear brake area and not releasing. Jack up the rear put in neutral, emergency lever off, see if wheel can turn by hand, if not, remove wheel hit brake drum with rubber mallet to see if this releases the shoes off the drum. Inspect emergency brake cable first to see that there is little tension holding it. let me know how you go. cheers.

My insignia hand brake has locked on how do i release rear offside only


you need to take off the rear wheel and there is a hand brake hole in the drum on the disc. you locate the hole with the adjuster.. make sure the hand brake is not on. the leaver for the hand brake take the cable off if the brake is locked the leave will let you take it off. then get a peace of wood and put it on the leaver and hit it back with hammer on the wood not the leaver. then take the screw out for the locator of the disc. and hit the disc with rubber or plastic hammer going round the disc. not to hard just to get it to move when of find out why the hand brake is locked in the first place. ( prob be the shoe's pins ) change the parts. while parts off give good clean and put some copper grease on the parts that move. huck back up the cable and check disc drum part for damage. screw the adjuster back down and refit. when disc back on adjust the brake with the hole lined up and move back and forth until the brake is locked then turn back one point on the adjuster check the disc turns and then use the hand brake. if still an bit hard to move after hand brake off nock the adjuster back down one more and test again. if all well put wheel back on.

Our car has been sitting parked for the past 8 months, today we tried to move it and the back brakes are locked, and the back wheels will not move? What could be the cause of this?


The bracke drum / Hand brake cable is stuck . Try to hammer the rear wheel centre and if the brake drum is stuck it wiill be released .
Also the cable of hand brake is stuck . try puling the hand lever of the hand brake up and down many times this may free it .

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.

Rear brakes locking up with slight touch of brake pedal.


Most of the time with the rear brakes locking up the brake drums are warpped. If you remove the rear brake drums and take them to almost any auto parts store (Napa, Checkers ect.) they will turn the drums for about $10 a piece.

After you have the drums turned you will need to readjust the rear brakes.
