Parking Break won’t release

Post by Joshua.Oakes » Thu Mar 26, 2020 1:30 pm

So my car has been sat on my drive for around 6 weeks as I’ve been working away. Now I’ve tried to move the car the parking break won’t release, no matter what I’ve tried. On the OnStar app I have a stability control fault and a anti lock breaks fault. Obviously it’s hard to find a garage with everything that is going on and I could really do with it by Sunday, has anyone got any suggestions in what would be a good place to start looking to identify the problem?

Thanks, Josh.

Is it a manual handbrake or electronic?

Electronic one, should’ve mentioned that.

Or if anyone knows a way to bypass the switch and manually release the brake and keep the car in gear when parked up?

You could try the servicing mode procedure, I suppose.
