Parking brake

Sounds like the cable is not connected to the back brakes, or the lock pin is broke in the handle.

2001 pontiac grand am parking brake broken

i would say either the cable is disconnected at either end or it has broke. the easiest way to see would be to have someone work the handle by ingaging and disengaging the brake and underneth the car usually more towards the drivers is where the cable runs and by engaging it you should see it move then you can trace it in both directions and see if it is hooked up. if it is hooked up then i would say the cable has broke inside and would replace it

My emergency brake cable broke with the brake engaged. how do i disengage it so i can get to a garage?

If the emergency brake cable broke, then the brake should disengage by itself, unless there is rust in the braking system preventing it from doing so.

An engaged brake needs tension on the cable to continue to hold the vehicle still.

You could have it towed by a flat bed that slowly draws the car up onto its flat bed, even if the brakes or park was engaged. Allow the tow truck operator to worry about this problem.

Good luck on getting your vehicle to the garage.

Replace park release cable.

You have to replace the entire cable housing and inner cable they sell it as a unit. You could buy one from a junk yard. To remove unscrew the screws that hold the handle assempy from the dash then with it loose you can remove the clip off the brake pedal it is a c type clamp with a flap over it.with a flat tip screw driver push the tab up slide the clip to the larger slot and its off.

Parking break is loose or broken. Need to know how to tighten or repair. It seems as the weld has broken as well. It engages, but I have to pull the parking break very far

If your parking brake is loose than you have to take off your center console box. Leave the parking brake off and when you take off the box you will see the cable from the handle connecting to two cables that go to the back. You can adjust from there. If that doesn't solve it than it might be broke and you'll have to check everything

Broken e brake cable

you need to get under the dash or kick panel on the left hand side,,,take a flat blade screw driver with you and a pair of plyers,,,you should be able to trip the release with just those tools.
