That is a sign that you need new rear brake pads and/or rotors. Or your caliper holders/sliders are not moving out and back in correctly. Don't adjust the cable on the lever, when you get new rear pads and clean/re-lube your moving brake parts back there the cable will be tight again.

Why does parking brake stay on?


jiggle the handle to make sure that the mechanical part of the parking brake system has been completely relaxed and that there is no tension on the cables or levers. If the light is still on, see if the vehicle moves without any drag. This can be done by moving the vehicle in a forward direction and then putting it in neutral. If the vehicle rolls very freely, then there may be a problem with the parking brake light switch and not with the parking brake mechanism itself. If you feel a pull, there is a problem with the parking brake mechanism.

Parking brake stuck


First off, I'd make sure the car was in park with the engine off and try that but I assume you already tried with it both OFF and ON. On should never work unless your foot is already fully engaged on the break. as many cars will not allow you to release the parking break unless you foot is on the break, some will not even allow it when the engine is not running, even in park. If you are running and the foot is on the break. Try SLOWLY moving backwards or forwards to disengage it since you may have pulled it a bit too far and the cable was real tight, this is easier to do when that parking break is too loose to begin with, and once the car rolled it got even tighter but moving the vehicle in the opposite direction that it rolled may loosen it enough.

If all else fails, you or a mechanic may go under the vehicle and simply loosen the cable to disengage it and then re-tighten it. Even if you are able to loosen them yourself you may want a mechanic to tightening the parking brake since is common chore for mechanics and it should not cost that much to do since it literally take only a few minutes once on the lift.

Parking brake light is on and brake feels stuck


It most likely has one or more frozen brake calipers (very common)I suggest replacing them in pairs, Make sure you flush the old brake fluid out.Check the E-Brake cables to make sure they move freely.The light coming on could be low fluid level.

Brake light stays on after releasing parking brake pedal feels a little soft


Check the parking brake cable to make sure it is moving freely and allowing the brakes to completely release when you pull the release lever. Sometimes dirt and rust will lock the cable. In this case, the parking brake pedal will still sit on the switch even though it is unlocked because the spring can't pull it and the cable back to the off position.

The weld on the manual lever is known to break loose. First, with the wheels off the ground, with the lever in the park position, does the drive shaft lock in park? If yes or no sometimes, drop the trans pan. I bet the nut on the lever camd loose.

Gear shifter does NOT shwitch from park and break


SHIFTER LOCKED IN PLACE

  1. Remove the instrument panel cover below the steering column, then remove the steering column shrouds to gain access to the brake transmission shift interlock (BTSI) solenoid. The solenoid is part of the interlock cable assembly.
  2. Disconnect the wire connector from the rear of the BTSI solenoid.
  3. Insert the ignition key and turn it to the ON position.
  4. With the brakes applied, try moving the shifter out of the PARK position.
    • If the lever now moves freely in and out of PARK, perform the Circuit Test below.
    • If the shift lever still does not move from the PARK position, remove the BTSI solenoid from the shift lever assembly. If the shift lever now moves freely in and out of the park position, the BTSI solenoid is faulty and the interlock cable must be replaced. If the shift lever still does not move from the park position, the problem is in the shift lever assembly or the ignition interlock cassette
