Hello and welcome back to justanswer.com

You most likely have a problem with the electronic parking brake motor. A Jag factory tool is needed to diagnose this but we can do a reset. Disconnect the negative battery terminal cable for 10 minutes then reconnect it and start the engine. It should say Apply Park Brake. Pump the brake pedal then hold it down and pull up on the park brake switch to see if it will reset.

Ok this is usually a fault with the motor. There are position sensors that fail causing this exact same problem.
