Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

 

Sounds like you may have a problem with the instrument pack or other module on the network. You should disconnect the negative battery terminal cable for 10 minutes to reset the modules. After reconnecting the battery you will need to reset the parking brake. Start the vehicle and pump the brakes. Then while holding the brake pedal pull up on the parking brake switch handle. To determine the cause of this problem you will need to have the fault codes read from all the modules.
