Truck wasn't pulled all the way into desired parking spot, so I tried to pull forward. Video would be of great help. Or detailed explanation. I'm a girl and don't have experience repairing vehicles.

It was 3am when I pulled in. Does the brake release with a pull lever under the dash?

Hi. Welcome to chat! My name is ***** ***** I am currently a factory dealer auto mechanic. I will attempt to assist you with your concern today.

There is a handle under the dash to release the parking brake lever. If the lever does not come up when you pull the release handle, you should try to pull the lever up with your hand while holding the release handle. I will attach an image of the release handle under your dash.
