If this were my car, I would replace the brake light switch ( near the brake pedal ). This could be the problem and is about the cheapest thing to start with. Good luck.

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.

Why does the Third brake light blink when turn signal is in use?

You probably have a turn signal bulb with two filaments one for the turn signal and one for the brake light. If the ground connection is bad on the turn signal circuit then the current would need to find another path to ground. The only other one available is through the brake light filament to the ground on the center brake light. Try removing the taillight assemblies from the vehicle look for what is probably a black wire screwed to the body or a circuit connection and either tighten the screws a bit or clean the connections.

how do I adjust air breaks on semi?

Semi-trucks are equiped with two brake lines. One in the normal air brake line and the other is the emergency air brake line. If your normal breaks fail, the emergency break will automatically switch on so you will be safe until you can stop. That is how you will tell your breaks fail-your emergency break will initiate.

One of two things. Either the brake light switch behind the brake pedal. Or try wiggling or rotating your turn signal stalk in a circle motion. If the brake lights work when the turn signal stalk is wiggled then you need to replace the turn signal stalk.
