Is the brake lever not releasing, or is the lever releasing and the brake sticking?

Check the parking brake cables to the rear brakes to make sure none are rusted and sticking. If you have rear disc brakes, remove the rear brakes and rotors to check of the parking brake shoes got jammed or there are damaged or if something has broken.
