The handbrake cable is either broke or out of adjustment. If you have not driven the car in a while there could be rust build-up in the drums.

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

Hand brake releases but drum brakes still locked


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.

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.

How does the rear brake drum come off of a 96 nissan pickup?


Removing the rear brake drums vary little from one vehicle to the next.First,loosen the lugs on the rear wheels,release the hand brake, block the front wheels,jack up the rear and use jackstands.Then remove the rear wheels.Looking at the drum after the wheels have been removed, you will notice two threaded holes one on each side of the axle flange.Give the brake drum a smart rap or two with a plastic mallet or piece of wood and spray the flange w/ WD 40 or brake parts cleaner.Obtain a bolt with the exact size and thread to fit the hole. I found it useful to "borrow" such bolt from around the work area-My favorite is the one fastening a cable or a hoseclamp to the differential.If that don't fit, look around under the hood:there's one there you can use.Thread the bolt into the hole alternating from one hole to the other.The bolt pushes the drum against a flange inside and removes the drum.After work, adjust the star wheel brake adjuster so that the drum turns with hand push with a little drag.

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.

I have a 2006 saturn ion, my daughter has it at college in pennsy, she parked it on a driveway last night before it snowed and she engaged the emerg brake since it was a sloped driveway, today she went to...


Have her try putting it into drive, attempt to go foreward, plant her foot firmly on the brake, put it back into neutral, then try to release hand brake. Other than that, the only thing she can do is to try and warm up brake cables (shielded part near the backing plates) with a hair dryer.(in park, so it dosen't roll over her) This generally happens when water gets into cable shield and freezes Once free, spray some wd40 or other solvent into cable opening and on cables themselves.
