If the release won't work you have to get someone to look at it and find out what happened, If the brake is going off and it is just the light, add brake fluid.

true... did you pull the release on the console ? maybe the connector for it slipped off. its really easy, go to the top of the e-brake and at the same time move the release, you should feel a wire pushing in and out. grab the line and feel around for a metal piece with a gap in it and pull it towards the floor. this releases the brake and you should reconnect it via weld or something.

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.

the parking brake may be stuck and that causes the brakes to lock up completely, and the horn and lights will stick work if the parking brake is stuck.

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

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.
