It sounds like lack of proper lubrication somewhere, either the brake cable got seized or the land slides on the backing plate of the rear brakes are dry, causing the shoes to not move properly. It could also be something as simple as the rear brakes are adjusted too tight. I would check the adjustment first, and then move to the rest.

Feels like I'm being held back


Sounds like your brakes are sticking. Possibly the emergency brake is not disengaging entirely? Stop the car and put in park. Apply emergency brake as hard/far as possible. Then release and put in drive and try to go. Most emergency brakes are self adjusting. If the problem still persists, have it taken to your mechanic.

Sounds like a transfer case problem, this may require a replacement transfer case.Not what you wanted to hear, try making sure the emergency brake is not frozen or the emergency brake cable is not stuck.

When I shift car into reverse or drive it will not move


When you're ready to pull off, be sure the emergency brake is off. Be sure the transmission fluid level is in the OK range to drive.. If neither of these suggestions works for your situation, give sequential information... pick a quiet time to set the parking brake, crank the car, put your foot on the brake pedal, shift into reverse careful to listen for what you can hear and also what you feel. foot still on brake pedal shift to drive. again what do you hear and or feel?

How do i adjust emergency brake on 2004 silverado


With truck running, try putting the truck in reverse, then neutral, try the brake release again. At first the lever pulled out and the pedal didn't move. Then I put the truck in drive, it won't budge, I looked for a break in the cable and saw nothing, it looked fine. I ran to the web site and looked for advice. Meanwhile my wife, who knows nothing but to put gas in a vehicle and go, climbed into my truck and put the truck in reverse and neutral, then released the brake. She got me on this one.

Sounds like the parking brake is hanging up- it's been set and won't release. Pull the handle, can you feel an increasing tension through its travel or does it just move with an even resistance and then stop hard?

If the case is the second, then the parking brake is hung up. If the handle feels like it's working properly then there may be either foreign matter in one or both rear brakes or one or both have parts that have failed- a spring, for instance, on a rear brake shoe. It would just rub going forward but would set hard backing up.

Emergency brake locked after pull release handle


handbrake jammed on somewhere ,could be front cable ,because the rear cable is pulled by the compensator so if it was the rear one then i would expect only one cable siezed and that is normally the kerbside one.

2000 honda accord v6, auto. all the lights on the


The lights have nothing to do with your car not going in reverse. I know this is going to sound silly but, are you releasing the parking brake? That brake is the lever between the front seats. Are you taking your foot off the brake?

I know they sound silly but you would be surprised at how often this happens with th eparking brake.

When you put the car in reverse can you feel the transmission engaging? You should feel a slight **** when you put it in reverse with your foot on the brake. If you are not feeling this, your transmission needs to be repaired.
