You will have to manually release it. First make sure that your handle is still attached to the rod since these do sometimes have a tendency to brake, if it is broke, you just have to pull the rod by hand. If it's still intact, you will have to follow the rod to where it connects to the cables and once again, manually pull it by hand. You might have to actually follow it all the way to the back axle from underneath where the connections are made to apply pressure to set and release and make sure there isn't anything broke there. Worst case is that when you last set your e-brake, it broke inside the drums and you will have to rebuild. Hope this helps some. Good luck!

SOURCE: parking brake is stuck on
need to get the truck on jack stands remove the wheels and if the truck has drums you maybe able to use some PB blast because the brake cables are rusted for the emergency brakes and at the same time you can check out the condition of your shoes or pads if you get any oil on the shoes or pads use brake cleaner to clean them off

You will have to look under the side panel, and you can release it with a screw driver, or get a pair of vise grips to pull the cable to release it.

the vehicle has to be put on a hoist. turn the driveshaft that goes to the rear wheels,it is driven by a transfer case that is almost in the middle of the vehicle,just rearward of the transmission.
if the noise comes from the transfer case,then that is the problem.
the drive shafts for the rear have universal joints which can develop play and give the same clunk.
if it is the transfer case,it needs to have a gear replaced.
always warm up the vehicle for enough time for the engine to come down to 1000rpm before putting in drive,the fast idle is over 2000rpm,and puts alot of stress on the drive components,and over time wear them prematurely.

Get the "Shop" to come back out to fix it or sue the *** off them for leaving you with a dangerous car.
No handbrake is an offence !!!
