Hi,my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will assist you with your question.
The issue that you are having Is consistent with the parking brake active sensor. Basically the brake system is in fault mode and will not release until the fault is cleared with a scan tool. Trying to release the brake manually is going to cause more issues and the vehicle needs to be towed to a dealer.
