Hi there. With having the button on the parking brake depress but the lever is not moving, then the cable or brakes could be jammed. First try pushing the button down and pulling hard up on the lever. This should free up the lever and allow the lever to lower. If the lever does not move, then go under the vehicle and see if the cable is caught on something or if the brakes are jammed. If the cable and brakes are looking in good condition, then the brake handle needs replaced. The handle is under spring pressure, so be very careful when removing the parking brake lever when its under spring tension. If you need further assistance with your parking brake not releasing, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
