I guess you are saying the emergency cable has snapped, If so replace with new cable. Too risky joining cable.

Emergency brake adjustment

This depends on which cable is hanging down. There are several cables in the assembly. One cable comes from the parking brake assembly under the Drivers' dash. It joins the rear cable assembly that goes to each rear wheel. Some cars have 2 separate rear wheel cables and others have a Y assembly that has to be replaced as 1 part.

There can be an adjustment rod where the front cable meets the rear assembly. Some of the parking brake reels under the dash are suppose to reel in extra slack.

Often if the rear Emergency brakes are worn out, there will be slack in the assembly.

Frozen braekes

You don't say what's frozen so I'm assuming you have tried to apply the emergency/park brake and its stiff or unmoveable. The main cause is a lack of use,ie when you park you stick the shifter in Park and get out. You should apply the park brake every time you park so that the brakes can self adjust and also keep the operating mechanism moving.
You will have to get some knowledgeable help to see if its a rear cable(Usually 1 cable to each rear wheel which then join another cable/rod underneath in the central tunnel above the exhaust)
or the cable running the park brake. The cable connection underneath may require access above exhaust heat shields?
If any cables are stiff replace all to get a smooth operation and do the job once.

Brake lights do not turn on

Sounds like you may need to replace brake bulb terminals they do get wore out were the bulb goes in easy to replace so new terminals easy to splice with wire splice kits don't twist and tape do this with splice kits or you will be always repairing take time do it right

Brake realese cable broke from inside vehicle how do i unlock the emergency brakes

You will need to get underneath the vehicle and loosen the emergency brake adjuster to relieve the tension on the cables. Bear in mind that untill you replace the broken cable and readjust the emergency brake, you will have no emergency brakes.

98 Ford Escort, Emergency brake doesn't hold car. Rear brakes okay, adjusted cable to 3 clicks. What am I looking for?

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.

Brake Release Cable

Yeah, just trace the cable back to the right rear tire, remove yuor tire and you'll see where it hooks up. You'll need to replace the whole cable, not just splice.

Rear brake cly's won't retract, what do I do,stan

I first would check to see if the emergency cable on each side is hanging up. That can be your problem. If it is the brake cylinders themselves, then they either need to be replaced or a kit put in them. It's usually better just to get new ones at the parts house. Check your emergency brake system first if you haven't done so. Hope this helps you, Rick

Brake pipe problem.

The local auto parts stores carry splice kits that you can use instead of replacing the entire brake line. Just cut the bad piece out and take it with you for size comparison and they can get you the correct splice kit.
