Yes, i did have my parking brake on the whole time. When i put my parking brake down, the brake light does go off. wouldn't that mean it has nothing to do with my parking brake?. i'll try rocking it back and forth again, but if it doesn't work? would i have to remove the rear tires and try doing it manually?
