I am sorry your having this problem

this seems like real bad timing for this issue to start after the E-brake was released

the location of the module is under the center console not near the E-brake assembly

that code is specific to internal programming failure inside the module and the only fix is to replace the module as this can not be a wiring issue as if it was there would be no communication with the module at all

if there is NO other airbag codes set the it has to be changed

there really is not a relation between the 2 other than bad timing i am sorry to say
