Have you tried to step on it? Don't or you will have a can of worms. The emergence cables, and break system are frozen up with rust. Just don't use them.

Best Answer

Best you get it repaired. If you inadvertently step on the brake, and it engages, you may not be able to release it. Meaning, your stuck.
