1990 Honda Civic Question: Park Brake

The brake handle lifts way up, past perpendicular, and there is no braking action that occurs with applying the park brake. What is likely wrong, and what would be the cost of making my park brake functional? -
Answer 1
The rear brakes and park brake need to be inspected but I would suspect that the handbrake cable has failed or at the least become detached at one of the rear brake shoes. Replacing the cable and inspecting the brakes probably 1.2 hours cable about $60. -
