You will have to look under the side panel, and you can release it with a screw driver, or get a pair of vise grips to pull the cable to release it.

Shift lever will not move out of park. Engine is running, seat belt fastened, parking brake released, all doors hood and trunk closed, foot firmly on brake pedal.When the button on the side of the shifter...

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

Broke parking brake cable. Need to release park brake to get it to shop for repairs.

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.

Parking brake won;t release

if it willnot release, then most likely one of two things has happened.

1. The release inside the vehicle has broken away from the the actual cable,
2. The cable it self is frozen.

Either way, you will need to get under the vehicle to see what happens when some one inside the vehicle is trying the release.

Does the brake light stay on, indicating that the brake is on?

My parking brake release is broken. I cannot release the parking brake. How do I fix it?

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.

Parking brake pedal will not set 0n 2000 blazer

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).

My parking brake on a 2000 S-10 Blazer will not release when I pull the release handle. How can I release the parking brake?

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 .

I sometimes cannot get the shifter out of park to go ..i have foot on brake but it does not matter. after some force and rapid movement it finally releases. any help would be great. 1997 blazer 4x4 4.3

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
