Question about 2002 Buick Regal
I put the parking brake on yesterday and it won't disengage. The pedal is up, and the light is off, but the left rear wheel is still locked up.

How long since you serviced the rear parking brake assembly
they do require periodic maintenance and lubrication
it could be 1 of 2 problems or both
1/ the parking brake cable for that wheel has seized from non use ( water will seep into the cable sleeving over time and cause rust to form, rust welding the cable to the inner metal sleeve )
2/ the parking brake assembly itself has seized in the wheel holding position .
the only true way to free up the assembly is to crawl under your vehicle , use a small length of a 2 x 4 and with a 5 pound sledge hammer , whack hard on the backing plate until the parking brake assembly releases
