Question about Cars & Trucks
Used emergency brake and it releases but once i stop at red light the car does not move. i have to put on the emergency brakes and release it again to continue move until i have to stop and do same thing
Your going to have to take off a rear tire and either get it loosened or replaced or cut,but get a haynes repair manual it will tell you step by step what to do and your local auto parts store should have one or check on ebay

I did the same thing a couple of months ago. You can release it manually by reaching under the E-brake pedal and pulling the metal piece (don't know what its called) towards you to release the pedal...hard to describe, but feel around under the pedal and there is a thin metal piece attached that will disengage the brake if shifted....I did it myself when my handle broke off in the store parking lot.

milage on this shouldn't matter, the light being on is probly just stuck, however you maay wanna check to be sure the brakes aint hangin up a little,
Also the surging can be causeed by the fuel pump goin out, may not be the case but something to look for, it will show up as random misfires as well, maybe try a good fuel addative, (could have a little water in it, check the fuel filter as well, alot of cars now days have a charcol filter and when they go bad they can be a issue, Pick up tube could also have a hole in it, the fuel pumpo on theese cars should be in the tank and are not fun to replace,
hope one of theese suggestions helps, there are many thing that can cause the problem your describing

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!
