I had a similar problem with mine a few years back. Seems as if somebody installed a service pin in the release handle at some point in time and failed to completely remove it. Anyway you can verify this by looking down beside the drivers seat into the release mechanism and see if you notice a pin lodged next to the release mechanism, I had to remove the drivers seat to actually get a good look at it. But it was there. All I did was remove it. It took about an hour total. Good luck.

How do i release rear brake

It sounds like your emergency brake cable is stuck. In you live in an area that gets snow and salted roads, and if your car is old, then it's likely that your emergency brake cable is rusted.
If you're not a do it yourselfer with your car, you'll need to take it to a brake place.

I don't think there is an emergency hood release cable, However, a body shop may know a trick to getting it open for you without damaging anything.

You can either get the cable repaired. Or you can cut the brake cables near the rear brake assembly. Or you can try stripping the cable release and pulling the cable from there.
