Check your fuses and brake switch for power going to it then follow harness from brake sw connector up to above steering column there is a 6 terminal plug, make sure this plug is seated tightly and not partially pulled apart...this plug is sometimes the culprit it has a retainer that holds it together, but it can be pulled apart partially from factory and it keeps Brake lights from working ,I just chased one of these down on a 95 1/2 chev. you will have to pull plug apart to plug it in straight, take column lower cover off to see it. it is held in place with a rosebud retainer, pop loose with a screwdriver to make easier acess to plug, good luck, if this is O.K. your signal head in strg. column might be bad, 4 ways and brakes run through that also ...would check plug first save you 150.00 for nothing !
Try loosening the right rear e brake cable. If that doesn't work back off the brake adjustment wheel or slide. You could try cracking the wheel cylinder bleeder loose to release the wheel if the hose is acting like a check valve and not letting brake fuid pressure release. last resort beat the drum off and find out why its stuck. If nothing above works then you'll need to buy all the parts inside and probably a new drum as well to repair it.
Bad caliper, or you just need to rebuild your caliper. The grinding noise is likely caused from the pads being bad and the rivets are grinding on the rotor. I recommend if you are a handy person, rebuild the caliper, if not then buy a new one and replace it and bleed the brakes
when you pull the brake have someone look under the car for the cable ,see if its broke if not ,pull the brake all the way,check the cable it should be tight,no slack,if its loose follow the cables to the back brakes youll see the adjusters on the cable,if this helps please vote me a fix ya,it shouldnt cost alot if your having the mechanic do it
