I put my Thesis in the garage last week after it had been raining. When I have come to get it out today there is an EPB Warning light 'Go to dealer' on the dash. The EPB system will not release from the nearside rear wheel. I have tried to coax it off to no avail.
Anyone any ideas?

Paul,
you can always try the old trick of removing the battery earth lead then refitting it, to see if it clears the fault.
It works on the engine management system so you might be in luck and I can't see that it would leave you any worse off Roll Eyes

sounds like the classic rear pad stuck on a rusty disk after rain/car  after rain or car wash then left standing.

This may fool the electronics. can you manually release the pads?

No joy Brian removing the earth lead & re-applying.
Can't release the pads manually either.
It's so frustrating as I can't really move it beyond the driveway without a recovery wagon and despite having AA cover, I cannot be bothered getting it sorted/paying out at this time (started new job this week with company car so Thesis in semi retirement after 80k km in 2 years anyway) even though I really did want to pop up to the GNW on Saturday.
Never mind, maybe I'll be lucky and it will sort itself out!

Paul,
As Tim said perhaps the pads are stuck to the discs after being out in the rain, I've had this happen a couple of times with the front & rear pads at different times, so I've had to ignore my mechanical sympathies and just use the power of the engine to drive her backwards in my case, as "Fay" is always parked nose into the garage, at first there's resistance, then with a bang the pads have come off without any ensueing problems.
Perhaps it's time for a touch of brute force and ignorance, I can't really see what you've got to lose being that all other methods have failed.
Good luck if you try it.

No Brian, not having brute force either, the skyhook suspension light has come on as has the esc warning light cos they don't know what's happening. Luckily these two warning lights were only on temporarily whilst I was rev-ing to accelerate and stamping on the brakes/attempting to release the handbrake (EPB) concurrently.

Sometimes you think cars have feelings as whilst it was piling on the miles in daily use it was faultless,  now it's semi retired and has  been replaced by a Vauxhall it's (quite rightly) spitting the dummy out!

I think the suspension and brake system is the same/similar to the Maserati Quattroporte? Maybe you could ask on one if their forums or try a Maserati specialist for a bit of advice?
