This is caused by the low battery voltage. The parking brake module will need to be reprogrammed in order to reset it. This can only be do E with a Jag compatible scan tool. If disconnecting the battery does not work we need to disconnect the parking brake module in the trunk behind the passenger side tr cover. Leave it disconnected over night to see if it will reset. Also please make sure the battery is fully charged. Low voltage while cranking will cause it to stay stuck. Let me know.
