SOURCE: Emergency break pedal stuck to floor, but break is disengaged

sounds like your brake cable has broken or there is something damaged in the pedal assembly.........try pulling on the release handle and move the e-brake pedal back to its off position by hand at the same time.(you may have to tie it in this position to keep it up)If that doesnt work there is a sensor on the pedal assembly that you should be able to bypass by either disconecting the wire(1 wire system) or connecting the two wires together (2 wire system)Especially if your truck is a standard the e-brake is an important safety feature,so if these steps fix the light and dinging problem you should still take the steps to have it repaired.
hope this helps.........Good Luck!

SOURCE: Releasing Parking Brake

adjust the park brake cable first (3 pedal clicks and brake should start to engage the rear wheels) then lube the park brake ratchet release parts (under the dash) with WD40, this should take care of the problem.

SOURCE: emergency break cable broke on 2004 silverado

I had the same problem on my 2003. Open the driver door all the way. Get on your knees just outside the door. Follow the plastic tub that holds the parking brake release cable inside the truck. Start from the release lever and follow to the end of the tube. There will be a metal lever that the cable was attached to before it broke. You have to pull that lever with your hand to release the parking brake. Very Important!!!...Hold the parking brake activation pedal with your other hand when you release the brake. Let the pedal out slowly when you pull the metal release lever. The pedal will come back very fast and you could injure yourself if you are not careful. Good luck!

SOURCE: 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 brake release cable

Same thing happened to me on my 2000 silverado July 3, 2009.
There is a release next to the parking brake pedal. You have to reach way under the dash but it has worked for me for the last month. I have the part to fix it but haven't had the time.

SOURCE: parking brake cable broke, 94 chevy s10 stuck, how

If it broke it should have released itself, the system is a simple cabel pully system, if its broken the cable cant have the tension to keep the brake engadged. if you want to release the handel pull the release and physicaly move the pedal.

Engaged parking brake with broken release cable on 1990 Chevy caprice


OK, The cable is Broken. So, What you need to do is, Folow the cable and, Release it by Hand. Please be sure That the transmission is in Park. At the end of the cable the steel wire should still be attached. To the release tab just pull the release tab or you may be able to pull the end of the broken Inter Cable. You'll need to place your, Head under the steering Column. To see the E Brake Assembly. You can't miss it.

How to release the parking brake when the parking brake release cable is broken?


Your parking brake cable is connected at one end to the release handle and the other end to the pedal ratchet mechanism. If you get your head under the dash you should be able to see where the cable used to attach and pull the lever with your hand or pair of pliers to get the pedal to release. You might have to remove a trim panel to get to it, but it is possible to do.

HAND BRAKE RELEASESD CAR WILLNOT MOVE


Release hand brake. Pull it again. While feeling for the normal tension have an assistant listen at the rear wheels to see if the brakes are moving and releasing when you release the hand brake. Possible causes:
-binding or stuck cable
-broken parking brake handle ratchet mechanism
-seized calipers, or if drum brakes faulty drum brake hardware/springs

How do I re-attach new park brake cable?


Be sure that the parking brake lever is fully released. If the cable is broken it may not have the tension to return up by itself. Pull the parking brake release while with your other hand pulling up on the parking brake pedal completely.
