Re: Electronic parking brake wont disengage.

First thing I would do, would be to unplug the EPB, inspect & clean the plug & socket looking for water ingress, damage, Verdigris etc. A good squirt of WD40 in there wouldn't harm.
If that doesn't work, then off with the lid, looking for the same stuff.
When it fails, do you get the motor whine? Could just be a nacky motor, needing a clean & lubricate.
Which is what you said in post #1
