Pull up on the e brake pedal as you pull the release handle. Pedal might not be all the way up.

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

There is also a button at the end of the emergency brake. When you push the pedal down the end of the lever compresses the button. The button may be sticking and you can just decompress the switch or it might be totally broken and you can either disable it or replace it.


I was having the same problems and was told to replace front brake line, corrected my parking brake problem.
