started my '97 Camry, the brake light stayed on when I released the
parking brake. It felt like the cable didn't release after the last
click. It was fine last night.
I called my mechanic, and he suggested driving forwards and backwards
a little, and pulling gently on the brake cables (which are under the
car just in front of each rear wheel). It didn't help.
Is there anything else I can try? What about using a hair dryer to
thaw the cable? Are there specific places where the cable or other
parts usually freeze?
I didn't think of it at the time, but it could be a different problem
with the brake system. I'll check the reservoir fluid level. Is there
For next time I know not to set the parking brake on level ground in
