Why does my tool freeze during EPB reset?

Here are some mechanical reasons why EPB resets could fail while using our tools that support EPB resets.

  • The brake pedal switch or gear stick selector switch is bad.
  • There is a miscommunication between the EPB module and either of the switches.
  • The EPB module or actuator has an electrical fault.
  • The electronic parking brake motor has jammed or failed.
  • You have corroded parking brake cables. This is a common brake system problem in Honda civic.
