it's probably your cables. I just replaced my cables and everything works perfectly now! they were about $100 for the two at schucks. with no experience it took me like 2 hrs to do it (my car has zero rust). not very complicated at all, just have to work in some tight spaces. things to remember: -take off the heat shield first -install the end of the cable closest to the e-brake lever first. -loosen the nut in the inside of the car underneath the armrest so the 2nd cable you install will reach. the old cable was all stretched out so the nut gets tightened to compensate, the new cable wont be stretched out, so it wont reach unless you loosen the nut. and the rest is really quite simple.
