The cable comes from the back of one hub and is joined by a short cable from the other hub and then the original cable runs up to a threaded end with an adjuster nut on it.

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.

How do you release the emergency brake on a 98 Chevy blazer when the cable is broken?

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.

Brake light is on in a Toyota Tacoma?

AnswerIndicator light on dash? Check fluid level in master cylinderMake sure parking brake is fully releasedCheck Brake fluid levelI have a 1996 Tacoma 2.7L and my brake indicator light on the dash is always on. So- here's how to check what's wrong... Start truck, release parking brake, if light is on, push the parking brake handle in/towards dash, if light goes off then you have a bad spring (like my truck does) or the like on the parking brake handle. That's all. Sometimes when I drive, I push it in/light goes off and then the handle works it's way out again and the light comes back on.
