Yeah...battery and ebrake are not related, whatsoever... your rear brakes may be locked up from sitting for so long. Rip on the ebrake, see if that breaks the brakes loose.


My brakes seem to be fine because i got it to start after charging and drove around block but still not working or driving right and when I turn it off won't start up again. but when it's sitting not turned on it still has this ticking noise that won't stop no matter what and the noise is coming from a box located under the ebrake console. any idead what ticking could be or what the circiut board under the ebrake is or what it is called. I no nothing about cars...need help plz

its probably your exhaust ticking. And get your battery tested, you probably fried it.
