    I have a 1997 Buick LeSabre. When I try to release the emergency brake it comes up partially from the floor, but the warning light and dinging stays on and the brakes are not fully engaged. The car has been sitting for about a year. If there is a DIY solution to this problem, please tell me how to do it. I know a little about cars but I am far from a mechanic. I have driven the car short distances, am I at risk of harming my brakes?

Get yourself a large hammer and hit the back side of your rear drums. This should break the e-brake loose. Make sure the brake is released inside the car when you do this. What has happened is that brake dust or rust is keeping the brake shoes engaged with the drums.

How do i release rear brake


It sounds like your emergency brake cable is stuck. In you live in an area that gets snow and salted roads, and if your car is old, then it's likely that your emergency brake cable is rusted.
If you're not a do it yourselfer with your car, you'll need to take it to a brake place.

How do you release emergency brake 94 dodge dakota after used? Brakes went out used emergency. Now i can't release them.


either there is a release handle or you may have to press the pedal down further and it should auto-release. Are you up north? salt? rusty cars? if the pedal is UP but the brakes are still applied, then the cables are rusted /siezed and you will need new cables and rear brake service to have brakes again.

My 94 dakota 4x4 feels like the brake is on when i drive forward but is fine in reverse. I have taken the tires off and the brake drums and every thing looks find but the drivers rear drum doesnt want to...


you could have a damaged drum .. many auto parts stores can test that for you .. could be a bent axel or flange (spin the rear wheel and see if it woobles ... or maybe you have a bent lug bolt .. the other symptoms you have are typical of a stuck emergency brake cable .. shoe/drum type brakes are regenerative in the forward direction .. that is they work with greater force forward than backwards .. so if you have a stuck emergency brake cable (and thats common for dodge) then you may have overheated the drum causing warping .. you can check to see if the cable moves freely by pulling sidways on it (if its open) or having someone operate and release with you under the truck .. it should move maybe an inch and release quickly . of course a bent flange or axel can cause a similar result ..

Emergency brake stuck, pedal release broken


What happens is the brake cables rust inside the cable sheath and then they won't slide easily. There's no good fix for this other than replacement. It's not easy to even find where they are stuck.It might be possible to find the end of the cables at the back wheels and pull the cables back---to release the tension
