Parking brake is engaged and I can't start or put my 2007…

Customer Question
Parking brake is engaged...

Parking brake is engaged and I can't start or put my 2007 750Li into gear

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the brake switch?

Well I got the car in May of 2017 and I took the car to be serviced yesterday it was running fine until this morning

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 750li yourself? What have you tried so far?

I tried looking for the parking brake fuse but I can't seem to locate it

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's all
