I do not recall exactly what I did, but two times I have had a message pop up and tell me I had to shift to Park. Each time I was sitting still. I think I had shifted to Neutral from Drive, and because it sat in Neutral for an "extended time" of merely several seconds, it's like the electronic brain wanted it to go back to Park before I could select Drive again.

I think the sequence was:

Shifted from Drive to Neutral
Stayed in Neutral several seconds
Attempted to shift back to Drive, but it wouldn't and message said to shift to Park.
Shifted to Park then to Drive and all was well.

According to the book, seat belt fastened, foot on the brake, move shifter to R or D and it will auto unlock. It doesn't say anything about touching the gas pedal. I just discovered this work-around by giving it some gas as I was backing out of my garage. The rear end began to lift up. I gave it a little more gas, and it unlocked the e-brake. I could hear it as well as feel it!

Yeah, my wife thinks it sounds like a Transformer.

Here's what my 2015 owner's manual says:

"The parking brake will release automatically when the
ignition switch is ON, the transmission is in Drive or
Reverse, the driver seat belt is buckled, and an attempt is
made to drive away
."

I guess this would mean giving it some "gas". At times, mine refuses to unlock automatically.

Mine was like that when new. I have the auto park brake feature turned on and it gives in real easy now. Maybe it learns over time?

I basically duplicated the occurrence below by accident except I put it in Reverse after being in Neutral for several seconds. Put it in Reverse, and it was functionally still in Neutral. Goofy quirk. Probably explained in the owner's manual some where.

I know exactly what it was, it was the collision detection, the moment someone walks infront of your jeep, or behind, the dash will make a sound and slam on your brakes, it is working as intended and that is why it did not leave a error message. ty yw.

I have had this happen... at a long light I have shifted to neutral and taken my foot off the brake. After about 5 seconds I get a chime and a message appears on the dash (that I ignored the first time it happened) that I need to press the brake and shift back into gear if I want to proceed.

If I shift into drive without pressing the brake it acts like I am still in neutral when I press the gas. A bit disconcerting the first time it happens.
