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

Christine, Park brake may be stuck on or partially stuck, this is the main reason but it could be something else and should be checked out by a good technician.

HAND BRAKE AJUSTMENT for Kia Picanto can notadjust the hand brake and how do I get at the hand brake tensioner


Brakes are self adjusting whether disc or drum.
I'm guessing the fault is lack of servicing of the brakes. You shouldn't have to alter the cable adjustment to offset a brake system in poor repair. Get the brakes cleaned and correctly set and you should find the handbrake sets itself. Check the cables release properly and move freely to allow self setting to occur.

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.

Fuse trannsmission


Hi Craig, I would suggest you forget about looking for a fuse and instead check the fluid level in the gear box. Start the engine and leave it idling with the park brake engaged, pull out the dip stick and check the level of oil. Always top up with the recommended oil and then take the vehicle and find out where the leakage is. Regards John

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 .

Car moves when handbrake applied,rear disc brakes.


The hand brake needs adjustment and more than likely the rear disc brakes are worn out. Replace the worn pads before adjusting the hand brake.
