My car tends to have the hand brake get stuck in the on position when it gets very cold out.
This morning I put my car at the bottom of the driveway and decided to put the hand brake since the driveway is a little steep. I went inside to get ready and about an hour later I came out to find that my hand brake has frozen on. When I undid the brake, the handle was loose and the cables don't move. I made it worse by trying to unstick it by pulling on the ebrake more. Now the brake is completely on and the car won't even move.
My question is, what can I do? Is there a spring that's frozen that I can bang or anything? Could I apply heat to any certain area? I know putting it in the garage has fixed the issue before, but since the hand brake is so far on, I can't get the car to move at all.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
