Handbrake doesn't hold/work on my 2003VY Holden Commodore


Sounds like the cable is broken. Pull the hand brake on as hard as you can and hold it on then try to move your car, if the car moves easily you have nothing to hold the pads onto the rear discs. Cheap fix for local mechanic.

Auto is in drive but still has forward motion with engine off


Are you on a hill? vehicle will roll if your handbrake is not applied. Peaple often make the mistake of thinking their transmission in "PARK" will hold their vehicle on a hill. PLEASE people do not rely on this, use your handbrake!!!!! The park pin inside your transmission is very small and is not designed to hold your car, this is what a handbrake is for.

1996 Subaru Legacy L Wagon: Handbrake button is stuck in shaft.


this is generally a failure in the hand brake assembly itself.Pulling the center console will reveal the mechanism that locks the brake cable in the unit.You probably will notice its inability to hold in this area which will necessitate replacement .

Sounds like its not cable, but in the hand brake itself. if the release is broke, pulling up on the cable is not going to hold the car and will give way. really sounds like the locking mechanism on the hand brake is broke.
