This sounds like the brake cable is applying going over all the bumps. The cable is most likely corroded up inside and needs to be replaced.

Continue pulling on the cable until a pin punch can be inserted through the hole in the lever mechanism sector gear and the hole in the right side of its mounting bracket (Fig. 149). This will lock the parking brake automatic adjustment mechanism in place and take tension off the parking brake cables.
