it dont require lubrication, its cable operated and the cables and springs on the bottom of the truck probably need cleaning or may be just froze up
my parking brake release did not take off the parking brake on my 2001 chevy s10? is there a way to disengage it?

You might have an ABS problem or a problem with the brake master cylinder. Check the fluid level in the brake reservoir.
There should be a lever down by the brake pedal. it will look kind of like a gear with a tab on it. that lever releases the parking brake. just be careful not to let the parking brake pedal smack you in the face....
Under dash, drivers side, above parking brake.
press the pedal down as far as you can and as it goes up...it should release it...
To see a diagram of a Chevy S10 parking brake system you can visit your local auto parts store. The store will have a diagram that you can look at or will able to order you one.
Check the fuse, then the bulbs, then the brake light switch.
Service brakes - replace Master cylinder Parking brake- either lubricate or replace cables ; I had a similar problem with my 1999 Chevy blazer, i ended up replacing the caliper and have had no problems since.
The head light switch is shorting out ,or a bad connection
How do you adjust the emergency brake on your 2001 S10 Chevy?
Posi-trac or broken spring in the brake. A frozen e-brake cable is another possibility.
Front brake lines, 3/16". Front to rear, 1/4". Rear, 3/16".

where can i find a diagram for a 1997 chevy s10 brake switch?
Examining the braking system is the best place to start when diagnosing an ABS system for the 1995 2WD S10 Blazer. Examine the brake fluid reservoir to check its level. An almost depleted container is a sign of fluid leaks. Leaks can be identified at the calipers, master cylinder or modulator.
where is the drake light switch on a 1999 chevy s10. The brake light switch is located just above the brake pedal. You will need a flashlight to see it.
Under the drivers side of the dash, mounted to the firewall, close to e-brake pedal assembly. Not very convenient is it!
Brake light switch out of adjustment or defective
I am assuming that you can physically move the parking brake lever however the actual parking brake mechanism will not release. If that is the situation, then first, block the wheels with a large piece of wood, brick, or something substantial to prevent the vehicle from rolling for safety sake. Then place the parking brake lever in the released position or have someone hold the parking brake lever in the released position while you or someone crawl under the vehicle and try pulling and wiggling the parking brake cables to see if you can get them to release. Sometimes rust will prevent the cables from releasing properly and some movement of the cables is all it takes to release them. If this didn't work then either your cables are too rusted/damaged to release or there is something else wrong with the parking brake mechanism which will require someone experienced and qualified to work on brakes to diagnose and repair. This leaves you with only one option which is to have the vehicle towed someplace to have it fixed.
First be sure the parking brake is fully released, then if the light is still on and the reservoir is now full, you have air in the system and probably should have the brakes inspected because you shouldn't have had an empty reservoir in the first place.
The brake light switch located above the brake pedal is broken or out of adjustment.
