2003 GRand Prix, the 3rd brake light works , replaced bulbs and fuse under brake pedal, brake lights still don't work, any ideas?

The button is stuck in? Which button? If it is the flasher button then I would think that is why the brake lights and the flashers don't work. If it is the button behind the brake pedal that is stuck in it should keep the brake lights on and that would stop the flashers from working. I need more clarification on which button you are talking about being stuck.

Release hand brake. Pull it again. While feeling for the normal tension have an assistant listen at the rear wheels to see if the brakes are moving and releasing when you release the hand brake. Possible causes:
-binding or stuck cable
-broken parking brake handle ratchet mechanism
-seized calipers, or if drum brakes faulty drum brake hardware/springs

My cluch is stuck on automatic .can not move into gear.

theres a button under the dash.. if you lie down and look under the dash, push the brake pedal with your hand.. you will see it press against a button, that button is bad.. when the brake pedal pushes against that, it unlocks the shift selector so you can choose your gear.. change that and your problem will be solved.

Our car has been sitting parked for the past 8 months, today we tried to move it and the back brakes are locked, and the back wheels will not move? What could be the cause of this?

The bracke drum / Hand brake cable is stuck . Try to hammer the rear wheel centre and if the brake drum is stuck it wiill be released .
Also the cable of hand brake is stuck . try puling the hand lever of the hand brake up and down many times this may free it .

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 .

Brake light on the dash is stuck on my 94 land cruiser ...why?

From your description it sounds like the warning light switch has either come adrift or stuck? If you examine the hand brake area look around for possibly a White plastic plunger that should be exposed when the hand brake is lifted/applied. To confirm identification there will be two wires possibly in a clip on plug going to it.
If the plunger/switch is in situe then it may have stuck, try gently pushing the plunger in and out it is sprung loaded so resistance should be felt, if you touch it and it is sloppy the try getting behind it and pushing the body back into its slot. You may have to remove the sock/gaitor that covers the hand brake base.
If all fails then try removing carefully the wired plug to it and the light will be permanently off on the Dash.
There you Go!
