SOURCE: My 2004 Volvo S60--

I've seen this happen. the parking brake does NOT use rubber lines. it uses steel cables and is adjusted at the handle under the parking brake lever cover. if the small metal clip that attaches the expander to the cable brakes, get ready to open your wallet. what happens is the expander works its way out and the shoes catch on the inside of the rotor. then it becomes very hot as you're driving down the road, and it causes the anchor(part of the rear knuckle) to break off and destroys everything inside the rotor, often including the rotor. then the knuckle, that cable, hub bearing assembly, and rotor will need to be replaced.. which will cost you close to $1500 parts and labor..

Why does it act as though stuck in park?


It sounds like the parking brake cable had jammed and possibly broke. I would lift the rear of the vehicle in the air and try rotating a tire. If it does not move at all the brakes are locked and need to replace emergency brake cable.

How do I release a stuck on emergency park brake?


hello,
if your e-brake is stuck then you could look at the unit on the side and there should be a small lever that you can pull to release the brakes if the cable is not working, the cables themselves could be frozen? or something mechanical inside the drums or calipers in the rear that could be stuck and not moving. there is a possibility that the master cylinder is at fault, but rare. you can open the rear wheel bleed valves and see if the vehicle can move? if so, then check the rubber lines to the wheels? to be bad

My 1998 mazda protege gear shift is stuck in the park position and will not budge ,after not having this ever happen


Usually a sign of a faulty brake switch or shift lock solenoid.
You may have an emergency release. Check your owners manual for details.

I have 2003 Pontiac sunfire it is stuck in park-is there a reset button---there have been no fluid leaks


Usually the problem is the brake switch or the shift lock solenoid. You may be able to take the shifter out of park by trying it before you turn the key to the on position.
Check your owners manual to see if there is an emergency release.

It seems to occur usually when car has been sittin a while. ill back out of parking spot and when the wheels start to turn it seems to lock up. when i give it a little gas its like moving a tank. ill drive...


Sound like the the emergency/parking brake adjuster is stuck.
The S60 as well as other P2 Volvos feature what's called "drum-in-hat" rear brakes that means that inside each of the rear disc brake rotors is a tiny drum brake. The rear discs function as the service brakes and the rear drums function as the emergency/ parking brakes.


That said, the parking brake adjuster works the same way as it does on most any other vehicle with a drum brake setup.

The parking bake adjuster works only when backing up. Sound like your may be getting stuck. The "hop" you feel may just be when the obstruction comes free/loose and fully release the emergency/parking brake

When it comes to poor parking brake operation, check for contaminated or excessively worn parking brake shoes.

I am surprise the dealer did not suggest this as a possible cause. Go back to dealer or find a reputable brake shop to check this out. Both rear wheels and rotors should be removed and the parking brakes inspected. This is a lot easier and cheaper fix than it will be if the problem is in the transmission (which it could be).

Please post a comment when you find out the true cause if this or something else so I can add this to my knowledge base. J

Emergency Brake/Parking Brake is stuck. It's in a parking garage, so there's no way to really get it towed. I need to unstick the parking brake so I can drive it to a shop.


If the parking lever will move, try putting it to normal unlocked position, then kick the rears tires to see if the drums will release. If the car starts, it may help to heat things up.

You can also try manually rocking the car back and forth with the parking lever down.


If you can see under the chassis, you may find the wires have become loose or disconnected, which (if there's room) you may be able to reconnect.

Good luck
