E brake engages by itself

A friend of mine tells me her ebrake comes on by itself sometimes and will not release. Anyone ever heard of this?

Doubt the problem is the Electronic Parking Brake coming on

It would be a system malfunction & the module,motor or rusted cables
would be more likely--neglected brake service as well (basics first)

Like all vehicle issues - the system has to be looked over & checked for
proper operation

You will need a scan tool as well & factory service info is pretty much a must,
before even walking to any vehicle to start testing (have to learn the system
before you can work on it)
