My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
Your brake computer may have set a fault code for low voltage or no voltage and may be disabling part of the braking function causing this here.I would have the fault codes checked to see what codes are set and from there the codes diagnosed and repaired to correct this fault here.You may just have to have the fault codes cleared out to correct this fault as sometimes this is the case when a battery has been disconnected and reconnected.
Thanks Pete
