What do you do if you have no emergency brake after replacing the rear pads and drums of a 2001 Chevy S10 4WD?

There are a number of things that you can have done wrong. Get a manual on your car from the parts store and it will tell you how it is supposed to work.

Yes, there is a cable that runs to the rear wheel brake drums.

The brake pads are actually shoes. The emergency brake relies on the rear brake shoes being applied by tension on the emergency brake cable against the rear drums to hold the car stationary. In other words, the rear brakes double as the emergency (parking) brakes.
