Verify the parking brake isn't applied. If it's not and the cable is frozen in the sleeve there isn't much you can do short of replacing the cables.

Parking brakes is stuck and its not the cable


well there is a cable which rusts into the car just behind the parking brake pedal or lever. then it goes down to an adjuster which has a separate cable running from it to each back brake. the adjuster and all the cables' routing holes like to rust up with age, then the spring loaded location where the cable enters the back plate of the drum brake likes to get rusted up and freeze also. if all of those locations are moving freely then you need to pop the drum off and see what is holding the parking brake lever from moving against and opening the brake shoe. if there is no brake material left then not only do you have no parking brake, but you have little or no rear brakes to assist the front brakes in stopping the car.

Parking brake won;t release


if it willnot release, then most likely one of two things has happened.

1. The release inside the vehicle has broken away from the the actual cable,
2. The cable it self is frozen.

Either way, you will need to get under the vehicle to see what happens when some one inside the vehicle is trying the release.

Does the brake light stay on, indicating that the brake is on?

Pull the parking brake cable spring back with diagonal cutting pliers, grip the cable with the pliers without cutting it, unhook the cable from the parking brake lever and remove the rear brake shoe with the lever.

Disconnect the parking brake lever from the rear shoe by spreading the retaining clip with a screwdriver and removing the clip and its spring washer.
  • Step 4 Pull the parking brake cable spring back with diagonal cutting pliers, grip the cable with the pliers without cutting it, unhook the cable from the parking brake lever and remove the rear brake shoe with the lever.

    The rear drum brakes:
    • Have internal shoes that expand against the brake drum (1126).
    • Are a single-anchor type.
    • Are actuated by one rear wheel cylinder (2262).
    • Have two pistons in the rear wheel cylinder (2261). One exerts force against the upper end of the primary shoe; the other exerts force against the upper end of the secondary shoe.
    • Adjust rear brake shoes and linings (2200) automatically.
    • Need manual brake adjustment if the adjusters are not operating properly or after the rear brake shoes and linings have been replaced.
    When the brake pedal is applied, hydraulic fluid pressure forces the pistons in the rear wheel cylinder outward, moving the rear brake shoes and linings against the brake drum.
    The rear drum brake system includes the parking brake mechanism. Refer to Section 206-05 .

    Handbrake does not always work at first attempt. if you pull the handbrake up and down a few times without the button pressed eventually it catches on the ratchet and works.


    Check the return spring on the parking brake lever as wll as the gear teeth:
    1. Make sure the parking brake cable is free and is not frozen or sticking. Make sure the brake shoes are properly adjusted.
    2. Raise and safely support the rear wheels.
    3. Apply the parking brake while counting the number of notches. Check the desired parking brake stroke; it should be 7-9 notches.
    4. If adjustment is required, remove the adjusting nut cover and turn the adjusting nut located at the front of the parking brake cable.
    5. After adjustment, check there is no looseness between the adjusting nut and the parking brake lever, then tighten the locknut.
    Do not adjust the parking brake too tight. If the number of notches is less than specification, the cable has been pulled too much and the automatic adjuster will fail or the brakes will drag.
    1. With the parking brake lever in the released position, turn the rear wheels to confirm that the rear brakes are not dragging.
    2. Lower the vehicle.
    3. Check that the parking brake holds the vehicle on an incline.
