Have 1995 F800, cannot get rear brakes to release. Locked going forward and backing up. The orange motor lite is staying on, and hear the electric motor running with key on.
Parking lite comes on and off with the yellow switch, pulled or push. I think the parking brake system is not releasing pressure.

Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. Do you have the hydraulic braking system on this or is this air brakes? From the sounds of it you have that hydraulic brake system with the electric motor on the master cylinder if I'm not mistaken? If so I am away from my computer right now but when I get back should have some troubleshooting information to help if this is the system you have. Let me know. I am chatting from my cell phone at the moment and Away with family but I can pull up these files when I get back to my office
