Hello,
I have a 2017 Jaguar F-Type, it seems the parking brake has been locked in the on position and the car is not movable. I have no idea what could have caused this issue. Does anyone have any experience with an issue like this? Thanks!

Not sure if this will help you but, it's what I found on the issue.
ELECTRIC PARKING BRAKE (EPB)
WARNING
Do not rely on the Electric Parking Brake (EPB) to hold the vehicle stationary if the brake warning lamp is illuminated or the EPB warning lamp is flashing. Seek qualified assistance urgently. A faulty EPB system can lead to personal injury or death.
WARNING
The Electric Parking Brake (EPB) operates on the rear wheels, therefore, secure parking of the vehicle is dependent on being on a hard and stable surface. Operating the EPB on wet or loose surfaces may lead to personal injury or death.
WARNING
Do not rely on the EPB to operate effectively, if the rear wheels have been immersed in mud or water. Doing so may result in serious personal injury or death.
CAUTION
Driving the vehicle with the EPB applied causes serious damage to the braking system.

  1. With the ignition switched on, press the brake pedal and press down on the EPB switch to release the EPB.
  2. Pull the EPB switch up and release it to apply the EPB. The EPB warning lamp illuminates to confirm. See ELECTRIC PARKING BRAKE (EPB) (RED).
    NOTES
    The red EPB warning lamp continues to illuminate for at least 10 seconds after the ignition has been switched off.
The EPB automatically applies when Park (P) is selected.
NOTES
To prevent this automatic operation, when the vehicle is stationary, press and hold the EPB switch in the release position before selecting P.
The EPB applies automatically if the ignition is switched off and the vehicle's speed is below 3 km/h (2 mph).
NOTES
To prevent automatic operation, when the vehicle is stationary, press and hold the EPB switch in the release position. Within 5 seconds, switch off the ignition and continue to hold the EPB switch for a further 2 seconds.
If the EPB is operated when the vehicle's speed is less than 3 km/h (2 mph), the vehicle is brought to an abrupt stop. The stop lights do not illuminate.
If the vehicle is stationary with the EPB applied and the transmission engaged in a forward or reverse gear, press the accelerator pedal to gradually release the EPB. The result is that the vehicle can be driven away smoothly.
When shifting from P with the EPB applied, the EPB automatically releases to allow a smooth drive away.
NOTES
Automatic EPB release is only possible when the driver’s door is closed or the driver’s seat belt is buckled.
To override the EPB automatic release, pull the EPB switch up and hold.
In an emergency, the EPB may be used to bring the vehicle to a complete stop by ensuring a controlled reduction in the speed. With the vehicle travelling at more than 3 km/h (2 mph), pull and hold the EPB switch wile releasing the brake pedal. The EPB warning lamp flashes, a warning chime sounds, and the instrument panel displays a warning message. The stop lights illuminate. Releasing the EPB switch, or pressing the accelerator pedal, releases the EPB.
If the system detects a fault with the EPB, the amber brake warning lamp illuminates and the instrument panel displays a warning message.
If the system detects a fault while the EPB is operating, the red EPB warning lamp flashes and the instrument panel displays a warning message.
