Yeah, and to add to that, my mom broke the parking brake in her car when she tried using it after not putting the parking brake on for 15 years. If you have used the parking brake recently, the metal wire might have rusted enough that it broke when you put the parking brake on.
I'm trying to remember, though, if when this happens the parking brake clamps down so the brake is always on... I think it does. Putting the parking brake on snaps the metal wire, and then it won't release.
Of course I'm just pulling at strings. You might not have even touched the parking brake at all.
