I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.

thank you for your attention to the rating requirement.

this is normally just due to a failure of the electronic parking brake unit - it is a common failure, the unit will simply need to be replaced.
