parking brake not releasing

Started my truck up this morning and i'll pull the brake release- the light goes off- but still feels like the brake is on. I push it to the floor- i'll hear 1 click- and then no clicks until i get it pushed almost all the way in- then there'll be another click.

Maybe the shoes are frozen to the drums or does the truck move?

It works. Remove the spaces. It is the same exact link as posted above. Maybe your browser does not like it for some reason.
