Customer Question

Car reg. LA 06 XSR. Brakes recently serviced, but shortly after I could tell something wasn’t right and so I took the car to be checked.
With the engine running, handbrake off, they raised the car on a centre support ramp and all four wheels were locked. When the ramp was lowered it was possible to drive the car off the ramp, but when the mechanic tried to push the car he couldn’t.
However when he switched the engine off the brakes released and it was easy to push the car. He then turned the engine on again, pumped the brakes a few times and again the brakes failed to release. I know there have been some problems with the maintenance of the braking system-could you please advise of a likely cause.
