If you have rear rotors that look like a rotor mounted on top of a drum brake, you will have an emergency brake inside the drum portion. The rear brake rotors are not flat like the front rotors for this style.
The E brakes have brake shoes and they have "Star" wheels for adjustment just like the regular drum brake. You really need to take off the rear rotors to inspect the inner drum portion. If you do adjust the E brakes without looking at the drum part, chances are the drum is pitted and rusty and you will be lucky to stop once before the E brake linings are ground off.
The other type of E brake works off the Rotor pads. You will see the brake cable attached to a lever on each wheel. There will be an Equalizing cable connecting both rear wheels with an adjustment point joining the main cable. Although the 3 clicks moves the main cable, to have both rear brakes equally tight you need the Equalizing properly adjusted.
Those are the things you need to look for.

SOURCE: emergency brake not holding
You have to go under the truck, there are cables that are adjustable. Look on the driver side just back of the front seat location the screw adjuster is there.

Testimonial: "Hey thanks! I had several issues and you had the solutions. "
I just did mine today, and did not have this problem. I screwed the caliper back in (right side CCW, left side CW) using the autozone loaner tool. No problem once I figured out they were opposite. Did not touch the e-brake at all. They self adjusted as designed and everything works. You need to un-do the adjustment you made if you were able to reassemble.

Hello, There are really two things to do. There is an equalizer adjustment in the rearward part of the cable to make both rear wheels operate evenly. Put on the Ebrake lightly and see if both rear brakes are applying even pressure. Adjust until they are balanced.
Then push down fully on the Ebrake lever until tight, then push down, repeat and the Ebrake reel under the dash will draw in the extra slack.
