Why does it act as though stuck in park?

It sounds like the parking brake cable had jammed and possibly broke. I would lift the rear of the vehicle in the air and try rotating a tire. If it does not move at all the brakes are locked and need to replace emergency brake cable.

Stuck in park what causes it and how do you fix it?

possible causes:
-on a hill without parking brake engaged, causing vehicle to jam into park. This can be fixed by pushing the car rearward while having an assistant shift out of park-with engine off. Be careful, and be prepared to hit the brakes soon as park is disengaged.
-shifter assembly locked in park. Look in owner's manual for park release button. Chances are the shifter assy needs replacing.
-linkage disconnected or shifter cable binding or broken.

Can't get 1995 buick century out of park

This car has a park lock safety system that is released by the application of the brake pedal, so the first thing to do is verify the battery is good, if that is ok then check the brake lights, they must work to release park.

If releasing the parking brake does not get the rear wheels to release, then you either have a parking brake cable that is badly corroded and sticking, or you have internal problems in the rear brakes like broken springs, etc that are jamming the brakes. You will have to inspect your rear brakes and paking brake cables to find out which it is.

You should be able to pull on the parking brake cable and get movement easily. It depends on if your Caravan is equipped with front disc and rear drum brakes or if it is equipped with 4-wheel disc brakes. If it has 4-wheel disc, then you could also have a bad rear caliper.

What does it take to repair a parking brake on a Mazda MPV for 2004. Is there such a thing as a brake shoe for the emergency or parking brake?

If this is an automatic, like I think it is, you don't need parking brake.
But if you still want to fix, the parking brake uses the rear brakes through a cable. The cable might be rusted or broken. This is the most common rpoblem.

96 grand jeep cherokee is jammed into park

the simple fix might be the park interlock cable. this locks the shifter unless you press and hold the brake pedal while selecting gears. I've seen and replaced a few of these on several chrysler/dodge vehicles.
