Customer Question

I have a 07 750 BMW IL I try to use my car one morning and could not get it out of park, I turned the engine off and try pushing the park button again didn't work. I read the vehicle manual and found that there is a manual release in the trunk of the car under the spare wheel on the side of compartment, I follow instructions an as able to release the parking brake . My question is : the park light is on yellow on the instrument panel, how do I get it off, if I go and and turn the Key and do a reverse will it lock the park break again ????

You are going to need to have the parking brake unit replaced most likely if it malfunctioned, the are common to fail.
You can try re engaging it and pressing the button 4 times at an interval of 5 seconds with the ignition in but engine off
You can drive without doing this, you just won't have a parking brake
