Question about 2001 Chevrolet Blazer
Brake still works, but it should only be released by pulling the lever, not by pulling the lever and then pushing the pedal back into position. i do drive in 25-40 degree weather so that might be part of the issue as i imagine.
I would check the pedal itself, then pull the drums and try adjusting the brakes, if you havent done this in a while to clean and adjust them you might be better off replacing the shoes, all springs and adjusting them till the drum just starts to drag and rechecking the ebrake, if this doesn't help you will probably need e brake cables and possibly a pedal assembly if it is binding

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!

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.

THAT PIECE HAS TO BE REPLACED UNDER THE DASH,I CAME ACROSS THAT PROBLEM BEFORE. I FORGOT THE NAME OF IT .THAT PART PREVENTS YOU FROM PUTTING IT IN GEAR WITHOUT PRESSING THE BRAKE.(SAFTEY DEVICE) ITS ON THE STERING COLUME
