'96 Jeep Grand Cherokee parking break doesn't work

The parking brake on my '96 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo (straight 6, 4WD) does not function correctly. I've replaced every element of the system except the cables and adjusted the shoes until they rub even when the brake is not engaged. Still, the parking brake provides so little resistance that it fails to prevent the car from moving when idling in drive or reverse and cannot hold it on a hill in neutral. The pull is difficult, so tension is going somewhere; I suspect a mechanical problem, but I'm at a loss as to what might be wrong.

    The rear brake shoes, rotors and calipers have both recently been replaced as well. The main brakes work normally, and I see nothing out of adjustment in the rear.

Check the rear brakes. Possible they are out of adjustment or worn shoes.

It sounds as though you have a frozen emergency brake cable. This usually will wear down the rear brake shoes to a point where they are metal to metal. Get them fixed asap.

96 grand jeep cherokee is jammed into park


the simple fix might be the park interlock cable. this locks the shifter unless you press and hold the brake pedal while selecting gears. I've seen and replaced a few of these on several chrysler/dodge vehicles.
