Sure... follow the cable from the rear back to the driver's compartment.
You should find an adjuster - it's a couple of L-shaped brackets held
together with a long threaded rod and a nut. Tighten this to tighten the
e-brake cable. Don't over-tighten, or the brakes will drag. You just want
all the slack taken out of the cable.
Auto parts places also sell a universal cable tightener for a few dollars...
not the best thing to use, but if the stock adjuster is frozen up, it makes
for a quick fix.
Of course, this is assuming it's just a loose cable, and not a bigger
problem with the mechanism itself - pull the rears off and inspect the
brakes if tightening the cable doesn't restore full functionality.
I would first, adjust the rear brakes, on a 99 you probably still have
drum brakes on on the rear. Mine is a 2000 and it has drum rear
brakes. Just adjust them up until the wheel locks and then back off 8
clicks on each side.
