Check the cable to ensure it hasn't been stretched. Does it have tension on it when you release it? It should have. A stretched cable will often engage the parking brake, but not release it. This is due to the condition of your hardware in the drum itself. I recommend removing the brake components and either replacing them, or cleaning and greasing them to restore proper function. Check for cracked/broken springs and worn surfaces of course. Sometimes the hangers and mounts for the cable break off or become loose. Inspect those for rust/corrosion. Please remember to use wheel chocks and safety stands when under a vehicle.

HAND BRAKE RELEASESD CAR WILLNOT MOVE


Release hand brake. Pull it again. While feeling for the normal tension have an assistant listen at the rear wheels to see if the brakes are moving and releasing when you release the hand brake. Possible causes:
-binding or stuck cable
-broken parking brake handle ratchet mechanism
-seized calipers, or if drum brakes faulty drum brake hardware/springs

Good Morning, I have a 1996 Chevy S-10 Blazer that I used the parking brake on yesterday. However, when I went to use the hand parking release, it would not release the parking break and it felt like...


Yup! That is probably what is causing your dilema. To remove the lower panel, the parking brake release cable must be disconnected. It is not hard to reconnect if you know what you are looking for. The service manual does not provide a picture or I would post it for you. Anyway, it just "Snaps" into place on the parking brake pedal mechanizm. The cable just slips into a slot on the release lever. You can actually reach up and release the brake with your hand. (Be carefull not to get your fingers pinched when the pedal flies rearward) If you can get the pedal released by hand, then you have found the lever that the cable attaches to.

Where i can find the hand brake


There is no hand brake. It is foot operated. The pedal will be on the driver side kick panel, and the release handle is under the dash in the same area.
