Maybe tightening is a better word. I pull it all the way up and still rolls forwards

That makes me wonder if the cable is disconnected.

Not rolling as if it wasn't engaged. Its only on hills with a lot of decline or incline. It holds on flat ground and small hills

So it has tension, just not enough to hold the car? Like I said before, will need to look into it more, meaning getting under the car and LQQK along the cable to see if it's loose or damaged

On my 92 Camaro the cable had a place where it can be adjusted/tightened, under the car. I haven't had any P brake issues with my 01 SS, so I'm just assuming its the same as a 3rd gen

Where does the parking cable run on the car?

The pads could be worn as well. Mine has issues every now and then. Usually just hold the button, and pull up on the handle 2-3 times and it holds fine.

^^^^ what superman said ... Pulling on the handle several times is the auto adjust, but if that don't work, get under the car and check the cable itself. The cable runs under the car from the handle down the middle and splits off into a Y to the rear brakes. If a parking brake is used regularly and is an older vehicle, the cable can become stretched. Or the pads on the P brake are warn, like superman said
