The return spring may be broken on the parking brake pedal. While pulling on the releae handle, at the same time reach down and pull the pedal up manually.

My 1999 GMC Jimmy will not release the shifter. I cannot get it out of park! Is there a sensor in the brakes that can affect this??

Not typically. Honestly, it usually means there is a problem with your transmission and you're looking at repair or replacement depending on how bad the damage inside is. 99% of the time it can be repaired, but it's costly and you're looking at probably $400 minimum.

Parking brake wont release

Your cables have rusted up. they need replaced. You can cut the cable towards the back by the tires. This will take a grinder or a large set of bolt cutters. This will release the brakes until you can replace them. You just wont have parking brakes, all the others will work fine.

The parking brake on my 99 GM Jimmy is tuck on

If you don't often use the parking brake iy could be rust and crud inside the cable sleves.
If you a regular parking brake user, then it might be a failure in the mechanisum associated with the brake cable and release handle.

2001 GMC Jimmy 2D won't pass inspection because the parking brake won't stay down. Is this an expensive fix?

No, it's not that expensive. I have the same problem and am fixing it now.
Basically you need to replace the parking brake assembly that is held on with 3 bolts, and the 2 cables. ( brake cable and release handle )
The Brake cable has three flared tabs you need to squeeze to get it out of the assembly.
Get a replacement brake assembly at your local wreckers, Mine will cost $22.00
Re-install the large cable with the flanges and then bolt it in, then attach the release cable.
