If this has a foot pedal type brake try pulling the pedal up with your foot as you release it.If not you need to find the light actuator on the e-brake assembly mayby a wire fell off or switch fell out.ive seen this before on other vehicles
you should hear a click from the solenoid when you apply the brakes. If your brake lights don't work, your shift lock release won't either. There is a bypass method for emergencies in your owner manual. Check fuse for brake lights. And switch on brake pedal
You need to lower the underdash shroud. Couple 7mm nuts hold it on. Look to the left at the parking brake pedal. Follow along a black sort of tube to the end. That end will have a cable comming out of it. Follow the cable. The cable is attached to the parking brake release lever. Pull the cable or the release handle and the parking brake should release.
For the time being, you can crawl down under the dash, follow the parking brake cable and see where it connects to the brake mechanism under the dash. You will be able to pull or pry on that part in order to release the parking brake. To replace, remove the cable from the points where it's attached (dash, brake release mechanism) and reinstall the new one.
Do you mean it won't hold very well or it just won't hold at all? If it won't hold at all, and there seems to be no resistance when you engage the parking brake, then the cable is possibly broken, depending on where you live. Northern states aren't very kind to metal due to the winter season, water and salt. If it won't hold very well, it just needs to be adjusted manually. Even so-called self-adjusting parking brakes seem to need manual adjustments every now and then (speaking from experience with my pickup).
you need to inspect the cables for binding and it checks good then your cables might be pulled out or the actuator at pedal is stuck most GM come a release at assembly ,you may have feel around for it by the actuator just above the pedal .
test the release solenoid for the park interlock pin, 1st make sure it has 12 volts at the connector 2 the solenoid when the brake pedal is pushed and if it does make sure it works and is not sticking, this is most likely a sticking solenoid that releases the pin to let u out of park
