Parking Brake Issue


Well-Known Member
Oct 2, 2020
Has anyone had issues disengaging the Parking brake on the model Y? I had to power down to disengage it and then the battery seems to run down 2x as fast as usual after it lowers back up until the next time it sleeps.
I would open a service request via the Tesla app. The rear brake calipers have motors, actuators to activate the electronic parking brake. It is possible that one of the actuators has failed.
