Up by the emergency brake mechanism the is a small black unmarked lever....pull it and it will release.

I am taking it that the automatic release is not working?

Once you put the car in "D" the brake will automatically release.
If it doesnt than you have a problem. It is also possible for the break to release and for a reson unknown the light dont go off it is not rare for the light to stay on with the break released on any car.

Emergency break stuck- how to realease it?


The emergency brake does not affect the lighting or lights on your plates. This is an entirely different problem going on. On some vehicles, when you start them and put them in reverse the emergency brake pops out automatically. If this doesn't work, you will have to manually unlock the mechanism. As for the lights, the problem may be in your switch.

Rear brake pads junk rotors junk front pads full,uneven,low miles


emergency brake cable may not have been adjusted properly or emergency brake may have been partially engaged without brake light indicating such. Check brake release handle, if it makes no noise as to indicate realease, then it would have to be the e brake adjustment or frozen brake cylanders that when brakes are applied the pressure presses the shoes against the drums but does not release pressure, could be bad cylanders but not likely on both sides at the same time.
