Need e brake help plz

I need to know how to tighten up my e brake. The pads on the rear are fine but when I pull the e brake it won't hold the car even at idle.

what do you mean at idle, one would assume its in neutral and not moving at idle. however back to the matter at hand, have you checked if your ebrake cable is connected to the ebrake on the rear rotors, or if the cable is broken?

Yes the cable is connected. If I put the car in drive and let it idle and pull the e brake the car will slowly come to a stop. It just seems that it should hold the rear brakes more. If my brake booster goes out the e brake won't slow me down at all the way it is now.

there is a method to adjust the ebrake, maybe it has alot of slack on it, i would look on google for how to adjust it it could be possible that it has to be adjusted or the cable is too far stretched out. worst case scenario is the shoes for the ebrake or hardware for it is damaged.

I just did a quick search and the most common thing that pops up is some form of adjustment inside the console at the back of the handle. I will check my manual later and let you know if there is anything in it.

My e-brake is stuck , yesterday I pulled the car out of my garage and my driveway is a little bit down hill so I pulled the e-brake a bit too hard and it got stuck somehow when I pulled back in the garage I could feel it still being on as the car did not roll in neutral , how do I fix this ????
