e-brake cable frozen? it got pretty cold last night. sometimes water gets in the rubber line of the ebrake and freezes it.
one thing i have always wonder about hyundai is how exactly their ebrake system works. i always thought it was an additional piece of metal inside the rotor on the right rear brake. kinda making it a psuedo drum brake.
yea it is i just checked. so i aint smoking crack.
Do you have tension in your e-brake line? If not, frozen or snagged line. You can take off the rear wheels and manually disengage the e-brake by pulling the lever the line is connected to towards the rear of the car. Its not easy, but possible. Try defrosting the line with a hair dryer. If that doesn't do it your line may have snagged. If thats the case, just cut the line and have the dealer do a warranty repair.
If you do have tension in your e-brake line when you release the lever you probably have a stuck caliper. In which case you would have to get a caliper removal tool attach it to a good C clamp and compress the caliper back into its housing.
How cold is it in virginia? I don't ever remeber it getting below freezing when I lived there
