there should be a lever above the parking brake itself, pull it and it will release the brake,

pull and it will keep ratcheting tighter...twist to release. (if the same as toyota)

I was trying to find an answer and saw a lot of references to recalls and parking brake design problems.

if it is like my buick, just push lightly down on the pedal and it will spring up; parking brake light will verify and turn off.

you need to put a screw driver under the claw on the sprocket teeth or ratchet and push and pop up. make sure the pedal doesn't spring and hit you in the hand !!
