You checked down the frame rail and the cable isn't snapped any where or stretched? Follow it from the pedal down the passenger frame rail all te way to the rear over the axle and make sure everything is in place I would start with that. Jmo

Yeah I would also look at where the cable is on the pedal it should almost loop over the e brake assembly maybe it popped off the track I'm not home right now to look at mine or I could offer some more help. I haven't crawled under my truck in a while.

How does the assembly work? Is there like a gear that holds the cable or tightens it or what? Cause it seems like it is a slip gear and now wants to stay down like the thing broke and I don't know if I need the whole assembly or I will check the cables again I just didn't know how it works

Yeah I can comment on exactly how it works I would assume there is some sort of gear mechanism that locks it. I just figured I'd point you in the right direction to start with te cables I'm still at work so I really can't comment on the assembly itself trucks parked at home.

I'm late to this posting, but the pedal requires a pre-load of tension from the cable on it's spring for it to return. So if you happen to brake either the front or intermediary cable, it will "feel broken" I reset mine by pulling hard on the front cable by hand then holding it in place with a vice grip behind the first metal block it goes through. I think a lot of people replace the mechanism when they don't have to.

Also check the rear dust covers to see if they have collapsed. There is a pin that holds the e-brake pads in place that is attached to the back of the dust cover. If it rust through, your pads will fold up against the hub.
