    By "won't stay locked" do you mean the handle drops back down flat or the car still moves with the lever in the upright position?

    Check under the rubber boot of the parking brake lever with the passenger seat slid all the way back. The nut could have come loose. I have heard that the ratcheting mechanism fails and the handle has to be replaced.
