Thanks for choosing Just Answer . I'm Wolfgang here to help!!
Below is my first answer or request for more information. If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail. Do not rate yet, just reply. Put yourself in my shoes, I can not see, smell, hear, feel or touch your car, nor do I know any history on it. So take into consideration I am doing my best based on what you tell me. Also understand fixing cars often requires sophisticated tools, that you may not own. So even if you can not do what is outlined in my answer, that does not mean my answer is wrong deserving to be rated negative.

The pulling of the fuses on the system will not release the ebrake . was there anything liquid spilled at the switch area? was the brake pushed when you tried to release the brakes by pressing the button ?

just trying to get all info thanks

i would need a vin # ***** get the procedure for you to remove the shifter boot and the trim to get the switch out and use contact cleaner in the switch and compressed air to dry it out

you may get that to release and then order a new switch from the dealer to make sure it will not do this again!!
