Look in owners manual for overide or use jumper cables/box on battery long enough to release brake!
I have the manual on my 2000 Cadillac and it says to release the parking brake, just put it in gear. I was at the Library and had my parking brake on and couldn't find any release. Then I read the manual and it worked.
