Question about 1991 Buick Regal
Do you mean just release it? or remove the cable from the caliper? the way i took mine off the caliper was I had someone pull on the spring with pliers and i used a flat head screw driver to un hook the loop

Push on the parking brake pedel, you push on it to set and also release it.

Sometimes (when changing the brake calipers on disk brakes, or changing wheel cylinders on drum brake systems) the mechanic will clamp a vise grip pliers on the rubber hose to prevent hydraulic fluid from dripping out. This can break the internal fiber lining in the rubber hose. Then the fluid flow can be blocked. When you press the brake pedal, fluid may not flow to the wheel or wheels. As you press harder, the fluid may suddenly flow through the line, causing the brakes to suddenly activate.
Or an even more likely problem, your brakes drag (stay on) and get hot, because the fluid cannot flow back to the master cylinder when you release the brake pedal. In other words, when you press the brake you force fluid through a partially blocked rubber hose. But the return of the fluid (backwards through the rubber hose) is caused not by pressure, but just by equilibrium, a balancing act. Well, if the line (rubber hose) is blocked, the fluid stays in the caliper or wheel cylinder, and the brake is still on, and the brake gets hot.

Sounds like your car is overheating. If you have a temp gauge it should show that. If you just have an idiot light, by the time it comes on it's already too hot to operate. AFTER the car is cooled down, open the radiator cap to see how much coolant has been lost. Chances are there is alot missing. Add WATER (no sense in adding coolant if it's going to leak out) and idle the car at home. Look underneath as it warms up to find where the leak is.

The bulbs do not need to be replaced! The answer to this problem is believe it or not in the turn signal lever, or multi-function switch. It is extremely common on these cars, and usually mis-diagnosed. Try this before going any farther. Back the vehicle up to a wall, or have a person stand behind the car, and pull the turn signal lever slightly towards you as if you were switching between hi and low beams. I guarantee that when you put just a little pressure on the lever your brake lights will work. If you want the problem fixed, you need to have the switch (and lever arm) replaced from inside the steering column, and you need someone to remove the airbag to do this. The switch is roughly $200 from an aftermarket parts store. If you learn to drive your car and just know that when you brake you can pull back on the lever to make the lights work great, I did for a few years in mine. But I guarantee that is the answer to your problem
