Answers :

I've got a 00' S-10. The ratcheting mechanism stopped engaging when I lifted up on the pedal to release it in cold weather one day. Removed the parking brake pedal assembly today and got lucky with an easy fix. Within the ratcheting mechanism, the elbow of the torsion spring had been stuck against the release tab, holding it open. A light bump on the spring with a screwdriver got it unstuck and working fine again.
\012In hindsight, I could have probably fixed this without removing the assembly, but it was hard to see inside. Reach in there with a narrow screwdriver or rod and lightly bump the spring before you take it off completely, it could save you some time and hassle if this is the case.
