Exclamation parking brake sticks

the brake itself releases. but the handle in the car slowly goes back up. and then the car starts beeping at me and telling me the parking brake is still on. i checked and there is nothing in there i just have to keep pushing it back down.

Have you tried a cold shower?




But seriously, maybe it's an issue with the cable that attaches the parking brake handle to the rear brakes.

Sounds to me like a cable problem, though admittedly unlike any I've heard of before.

The good news is that all those parts are pretty cheap.

I can't think of anything that would be pushing the ebrake cable forward other than maybe the cable carrier (#3 in the diagram Dan posted) is sooooo loose its pushing the handle, but man even that seems like a reach. Maybe something hanging off of an ebrake cable, or something was routed incorrectly. Was any work done to the car before this started to occur?
