Q: Parking brake stuck

asked by on

My parking brake is stuck.

Hi. If your parking brake is stuck, there may be a problem with the handle itself, or perhaps the cables or drums underneath the vehicle. I would recommend having the vehicle’s brake system inspected by a professional technician, such as one from YourMechanic, as this may render the vehicle unable, or unsafe to drive.
