My emergency break on my 2005 impala is not working, how do I fix

I use the break ocasionally when parking, and I thought it seemed to work ok, but I failed my safety inspection today because they said it wasn't working correctly. They said it won't hold the car from driving while in drive. How do I fix this without taking it to a shop and spending a TON of money?

2005 Mountaineer 2 wheel drive, 6 cyl hard to shift when parked on incline or decline and doesnt feel like shifting into overdrive. Sometimes jump a few inches when put into reverse. Any thoughts.


Yes when you park on an incline you should always put your emergency brake on before shifting to park. Then whenyou are ready to move again put you car in gear before disengaging the emergency brake. this will remove the stress from the transmission.

Try using super penetrating oil like WD-40 or Liquid Wrench and spray this on the "exterior" of the cable in the vicinity of any "bends" in the cable near the wheel. After liberally applying the super penetrating oil, wait 10 minutes (allow to soak in to break rust free) and then attempt to turn the emergency brake on and off several times to put pressure on the brake and release it. you can also help the spring activated "return" feature of the brake by moving the brake shoe in and out with your hands when parking brake is in the released position. Be careful not to pry on anything delicate...
