If you mean the brake itself, the parking brake lever pulls on the cables which attach to the rear brakes and manually tighten up the rear brake shoes. If the brake isn't working either a cable has broken or the problem is in the rear brakes.
Try this. Look for a blue disc at the brake pedal assembly that may have broken and fallen out. It's called a bumper and costs $3.20 at the dealer. Just happened to me.

Sounds like warped brake rotors .
It is a switch on the brake pedal which sends current to the stoplights in the rear.
As long as it is DOT3 brake fluid you are fine.
