There's a couple things to check. Your truck may need the cable adjusted underneath the car, but most likely the pads are getting low and the low park brake response is usually an indicator that the pads need replacement... If the pads are low , then replacing them will bring the park brake back to proper level.
If not, the adjustment can be made under the truck on the cabling..

How can adjust the emergency brake for my 2004 GMC Envoy...


YOUR MOST LIKELY PROBLEM IS IN THE REAR ROTORS. THE PARK BRAKE AREA WILL RUST INWARD WEARING OUT THE PARK BRAKE SHOE. THE ADJUSTER IS UNDER THE ROTOR ALSO. ONE ON EACH SIDE.

ADJUST THE SHOE OUT UNTIL IT TOUCHES THE DRUM AND THEN BACK IT OFF ABOUT 6-7 CLICKS.

How to adjust parking brake on a GMC Sierra 2500 HD Duramax 4wd?


The adjuster is just like on a car with drum brakes. It can be adjusted with the wheels still on the truck, but if yours is out enough that it doesn't work, an inspection is warranted. Axle seal failure is common and will soak the shoes.

Jacked both rear wheels off ground, and while slowly spinning wheel, tighten the star-wheel adjuster until you just hear and feel brake drums rubbing, then loosened slightly.
There's a plastic dust cover about 1/4" X 1" that you remove, and use a drum brake adjuster tool.

The driverside access hole is below axle, easily accessable. To tighten driver side rear parking brake, turn star-wheel adjuster down.


The passengerside access hole is found above axle, and difficult to see. Removed pass side wheel and used an inspection mirror.
To tighten passenger side rear parking brake, turn star-wheel adjuster up.

Good luck and hope this helps. Oh and the other thing to is that if you do smell axle fluid around the wheels and see oil leaking from the drum area. Then you have a axle wheel seal and or bearing gone bad too.

This car has regular shoes on the back not disc. Replace shoes and adjust cable. No parking brake is a sign of worn out shoes. Regals have rear disc on them for this year.

Parking or emergency Brake problem


Check the hardware for the drum emergency brake inside the the rear disc brakes, these pads are for your emergency brake, there should be an adjustment bolt that just sits between the two pads. Also, check the cables running to this set of pads to make sure they were connected properly. After you have checked the drum emergency brake, follow the cables in the undercarriage and look for the point at which they combine to another single cable, this is the point where the actual cable pressure adjustment is located.
