The cables are probably seized inside. You can try the PB blaster trick and see if they free up but I suspect you'll be needing to replace the back sections at a minimum.

One benefit of having a stick shift is that you use the parking brake every time you park and there is less chance of them seizing up (they will eventually. I had to replace all three on my '98).

If you are interested in getting them operating again, instead of just cutting the cables, I would suggest getting in the habit of using it frequently.

Spray WD40 on the cable line and let it sit for a while.. It worked for me years ago. I always use my e-brake for that reason. Hope that helps.

Pull the release lever, put it in drive and punch the gas.. happens to me every winter when we get snow/ice the drums freeze to the shoes.
