Hello there! I'm Wolfgang ! I will try to assist you as much as I can.
I do need more information from you . was there any brake work recently performed?
did the battery run low?
do you use the parking brake all of the time?
please let me know
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No brake work done, battery didn't run low,i never use E brake.
Expert:  Wolfgang replied 2 years ago.
ok the usual suspect is one of the caliper e brake motors is frozen . the issue is now that the caliper that is affected needs to be changed. the motors are not available separately.
scan tool is needed to isolate which one and then after replacement the system needs to be calibrated.
anything else?
if not.....
