jibtastic4 is on a distinguished road
Icon13 E-Brake is stuck

my e-brake will not disengage, the light is still on with the handle all the way down. only one of my wheels has been working with my brake since I've had the car. when this happened it was pretty damn cold out, it may have froze but now its a little warmer and it still is on.
i know theres three million post about this but, recently i was driving down the road not rippin it er anything and i pulled over, and put it in neutral because an ambulance was coming and when i went to shift into first it would not go into gear, i tried and tried so i turned off the car and it went into first and then drove home with my emergency lights on in first. thought maybe my linkage from the shifter was fornicated so removed center console and it was fine. so i looked it up and what not and many people said it could be the throwout/thrust bearing. but the weird thing is few days later got in my car and it shifted just fine, it comes in and out and is mostly just really rough to shift or won't go into gear. thanks for any help

Re: E-Brake is stuck

The e-brake light simply tells you when the handle is up/down, has nothing to do with the calipers. When you took the center console out, the e-brake light sensor is right under the handle, very obvious to spot. The sensor could simply be stuck pressed down.

A "frozen" caliper has nothing to do with the temperature, its referring to the piston inside the caliper is frozen and not moving due to rust/corrosion. Its prolly a good idea to rebuild the calipers anyway with new seals and gaskets.

With the car off and clutch in, can you shift into all the gears?

Re: E-Brake is stuck

The brake light on the dash could also be telling you that the fluid level in your master cylinder is low.

The stuck caliper is somewhat rare for Hondas in all honesty.

Not going in to gear could be a matter of, say, the floor mat getting stuck under the clutch pedal. If that's not the problem, whenever it does that again, let the clutch out, put it in again, and then see if it will go in to gear. My 99 has the same problem occasionally (and it's popped out of third gear while accelerating, more than once)
