My car's emergency brake is not functioning. I think the brake's cable may be broken.
You can disconnect your emergency brake light removing the emergency brake cable. The emergency brake cable can be removed by turning the swivel nuts to the left, on each end of the cable.
depends on the problem, it could be the hood release cable, or the latch. latch is very simple, the cable is also simple, just more of a routing problem.
It depends which cable is broken. If the main cable is broken under the truck, the brakes should release on their own. If the brakes dont release, the cables are frozen from rust and need to be replaced. If the release cable from the handle to pedal assemdly is broken reach under the dash above the pedal and find the small release arm. Pull the arm toward you [ the rear of vehicle ] and the emergency brake pedal will release.
See if you can locate the cable that goes to the lever on the front of the transmission and determine if that cable is broken. If you find a broken cable, replace it, if not you may have a serious transmission problem.

Look at the two cable going to each drum to see if just one is stuck on or both. IS it drum or disc? It is the emergency brake cable. It happened to me once before and the tow truck driver said the release is the same as in a Cadillac, but that doesn't help me and I can't afford another tow truck driver. In a caddilac you put it in drive to release the parking brake. But when the cable is broken you can't engage the parking brake.
I don't know about Silverado trucks but all of the emergency (parking) brakes I'm familiar with use the brake cable to "pull" and hold the brake against the drum (or disk), so if the cable breaks you simply cannot apply the emergency brake. That is, it is automatically released if the the cable breaks.
Your GMC Suburban emergency brake release cable is held in place with a swivel nut on each end of the cable. Loosen the swivel nut to remove the cable. Reverse the process to install the new emergency brake release cable.

Most common would be speedometer cable has broken Remove speedometer head and move vehicle to see if cable moves- if not probably broken - if it does probably problem with speedometer head
yes you do have to.The answer is no you don't have to disconnect the emergency brake cable, just remove the whole calliper and the rotor will come off no problem, its a good idea to change the emergency brake shoes if needed and lube the linkages, that's is all.
HOW DO I OPEN HOOD ON CAR WHEN CABLE IS BROKEN
Fix the emergency brake
I had the same problem with my 1995 LHS. The only remedy is to carry a set of pliers in your glove box. I replaced the cable handle once but it broke again.
This would generally be caused by a broken wire within the video cable. Green is not the only variation of this problem. Replacing the cable will most likely fix the issue.
You generally can't replace the guide without replacing the cable. If the transmission still shifts easily, you don't need to replace the cable immediately (as in, it is not an emergency) however you should plan to replace it as soon as you can. yes you do there is no getting around it, sorry
you may have a broken speedometer cable. you may have a broken speedometer cable.
