Hello, what year is your santa fe? And have you ever had this issue before or is this the first time? Lastly, is the vehicle parked on a hill?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It is 2013. Never had this issue before. And yes the vehicle is parked on a hill
Expert:  Andrew Martin replied 1 year ago.
Alright, I would guess that there is too much pressure on it and thats why it is sticking. If you start the vehicle, put it in drive and move forward a little bit then try to release it it should work. If that doesn't work there may be an electrical issue and you'll probably need to get it towed to a dealer so they can try to release it with the scan tool.If my answer has helped you, please help me by rating or accepting my answer.

I'm sorry I'm on Hyundai's technician information web site and the first year that electronic parking brakes were introduced was 2016. I'm going to open your question to other experts, maybe someone else can help.

generally it needs to be pushed one way to release and the other to lock. have you tried while releasing it to hold the button down. ?
