Right - does the lever flop around like it's not attached to anything? If you pull it in and let go, does it return to its original position by itself? Or does it stay pulled in?

Yes - but does it return on its own when you release it, or does it stay pulled in? If it stays pulled in, then the cable is likely broken. If it returns on its own, you've got a different problem.
