The electric parking brake (epb) has malfunctioned. The car was parked in a level garage overnight, without the parking brake engaged. When the car was turned on the epb light came on and is flashing, as well as the brake light warning. The warning lights remain illuminated on the dash even after multiple restarts. The emergency brake is not engaged and the car seems to drive fine. However i have no emergency brake now, which is obviously a significant safety issue. *tr
