You'll have to crawl underneath the car to look at the parking brake cable. Not trying to be funny, but that'* the only suggestion I can give you. Also look at the parking brake pedal under the driver side dash area to check everything in order.

I remember reading something about going to a bike store and ordering a brake cable for just a regular bike. Make sure it'* long enough though, but I don't think it has to be very strong. Oh, and this was for a honda, so idk about bonnes, but look at the brake cable, and if it'* thin and metal, take a chance.

Our cables are much thicker than bike cable. As mentioned, you need to get under there and find the break.
