99 Park Ave parking brake stuck on

99 Park Ave got parking brake stuck on
Just got vehicle and was testing parking brake for certification.
Handbook says to apply it first step on regular brakes then push on parking brake lever with left foot.
To disengage it push on normal brakes then push on parking brake with left foot and the parking brake lever is to follow the left foot up and release the parking brake.
My parking brake stays down

Anybody know if this is an electrical issue or just a stuck cable
I was going to get some ideas before I dive in with prybars

Don't quote me, but I think that one is purely mechanical. Get a flashlight and stick your head down there; I think you will find a little manual release lever that will free it up. What's making it stick may take some detective work.

Try putting the car in gear and see if it releases on its own.
