The emergency brake in my truck is stuck.
Hello, the parking brake can be stuck for a few reasons. The cables could be binding due to age and rust. The pedal might be stuck and is not releasing. You can try pulling up on the pedal while pulling the release handle to see if the pedal comes up. The other thing to try is to hold the release handle and then give the pedal a couple of firm press-kicks to see if will release. If those don't work you may need the aid of a mechanic to diagnose and repair your emergency brake issue.
