E-Break Problem

Okay so my E-brake does not work at all. Luckily it's an auto but I still want it to work regardless. Has anyone come across this problem or knows how to fix it?

When you pull up on the e-brake handle is there any tension at all or is it loose? If it's loose than you have a problem with the cable. Could be broken and needs replacement. If there is tension then it's probably the rear calipers. Brake pads might need replacing, or the calipers need attention or replacing.

Check your brake pads first. Take off your rear wheels and check your calipers and pads and also the e-brake line. It could be possible that the piston crapped out as well. Look at every angle before replacing parts. I still haven't learned my lesson :p just curious, how did you figure out your e-brake didn't work? I never use mine unless I'm doing something with my tires or brakes or jacking up the car

Do you really wanna know? Lol haha all kidding a side when I park uphill and pull the e-break the car rocks backwards still. And also when I work on my tires too. I try to use it but its pointless because it doesn't work!

Okay, haha good, I though you were just playing around with it cause I have before. Leave it on neutral in the driveway lol. But yeah. Check all of the above, it could be something small
