    Hi everyone,

    I'm fairly new to the Tesla community, having just taken delivery a week ago. Already twice I've gotten a parking brake fault, notifying me the parking brake hasn't been released, but there doesn't seem to be any effect on the way the car drives, as if it isn't really still on. Both times this has happened is after charging at NEMA 14-50 and J1772 stations, and the weather has been over 110 in both cases. After the first time, the fault went away when the vehicle had been parked in the shade for a few hours. It just happened a second time, so there hasn't been a chance for the fault to go away yet.

    I did some research and found out there was a parking brake recall for vehicles manufactured between February and October 2016. Tesla Parking Brake Recall - check back for details | Tesla. Mine is a brand new 2017 Model S 75. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks for your help.
