Handbrake don't work after a cable change

Hi, my handbrake was working perfectly, but suddently it don't, unfortunately the jack plug was broken inside (maybe I broke it with my foot getting in my rig).
Then I have ordered a new cable, plug it, and the handbrake still not working.
I have tested the cable with a multimeter and it works, so what happen ? Maybe the potentiometer is dead ?
when you broke the plug you may have broke the socket. Change that and report back.
PS - i had the same issue previously - plug got knocked and damaged the socket.
i have to do this to get my hand brake to function on Dirt rally and unplug it the rest of the time, but work flawlessly after i tune it on start up before i play. i think a cable is incoming, but im not thinking its that.
the next step is sending it in.
Hi, I finally send it back to fanatec, and they sent me a brand new one ! I was happy for this till I plug it into my podium base, and it still don't work :o
I reinstall all the drivers, tried it in my base AND my V3 pedals, and the handbrake don't work any more......
SO WHAT the fuck ????
