    What you should do is get into the habit of:

    1. Put the car in neutral right before you hit the starter.

    2. Doublecheck to make sure it's in neutral before you let the clutch out. (if you are going to let it idle for a bit).


    This isn't slam or anything, it's merely a suggestion for safety's sake.

    I have the same problem once in a while. I think it did happen when I had my foot on the brake as well. Seems like an interlock between the parking brake system and the regular brakes is the culprit...but I don't know the design. I heard that on Grand Ams with all wheel disc there is a small drum inside the rear rotor that is actually the parking brake making it a completely independant system. I don't know if it is similar on the Firebirds.

    1998-2002 has the drum in hat system (same as the Grand Am u described) which is completely independent from the regular brakes. I believe the 1993 to 1997 uses the the rear brake caliper and pads as the PB.

    True, and the 93-97's are prone to problems.

    +1, always leave car in gear when parking..... especially if handbrake is in questionable working condition...
