Having problems with your 1996 Cadillac DeVille ?
How do you get the E brake off? - 1996 Cadillac DeVille
I don't know if I can explain this correctly but I'll try. Some cars that have a foot peddle that activates the emergency brake when foot peddle is compressed. If there is not a brake release handle directly above the peddle, it might have a kind of spring release. Try pressing down on the peddle hard and then move your foot off and out of the way and it might spring back and release that way.
The emergency brake is vacuum operated. It should release when you put it in gear, if not there is a release handle on the side of the pedal.pull it back and it should release.
