If the parking brake pedal on your 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 is stuck to the floor, you might have broken the parking brake cable. Remove the rear tires to see if the cable is still attached and replace it as needed.

my parking brake release did not take off the parking brake on my 2001 chevy s10? is there a way to disengage it?

A stuck parking brake could be caused by several things. The brake cable that operates that brake could be stuck, or the mechanism could be stuck at the wheel. The wheel will need to be removed and the cable and emergency brake arms will have to be checked.

stuck parking brake/stuck brake caliper
If the parking brake doesn't hold my guess is the parking brake shoes are shot. Also inspect the parking brake cables, they may be stuck and in need of replacement. The parking brake is designed to hold the vehicle in a parked position and not to be used as an emergency brake to stop a vehicle.
the eldorado has an automaatics parking break. as soon as you put the transmission in gear the parking break releases.
