Check the large fuse in the vehicle interior. If the fuse is blown, use a Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the screw and replace it with a new one.

So looks like the whole fuse just replaces. Just unscrew it and pull the whole 'multi fuse' assembly. Looks about a $30+ part.
You might have missed it at the bottom of my post, but even after removing the screw the fuse will not budge. I tried gripping and pulling it with a pliers and the plastic casing started coming apart (really, the “top” ripped off, exposing metal).

Oh well, car’s running great now..

Yes, it is supposed to do that.. but it wasn’t doing it while it was stuck in this insane “mode”.

Anyways, does this work 100% for you? I’d say 10% of the time it doesn’t automatically release the parking brake for me and I have to pull the switch, after rocking back off the brake.

How many miles? If you're still under 36000 or 3 years take it to the dealer.

Only times I rock up on that electric brake is when I decide not to trust the door opening skills of those who pull in beside me and I already have my belt off. Seatbelt engaged is the 3rd or 4th interlock on the auto disengage.

Been searching using the term 'multi fuse block':


So.. looks like its unscrew > lift up on tabs > pull out??

Ours are a bit different.. only one screw, and I didn’t see anything about tabs. If they’re there I missed them, I will have to check in the morning.

Alas.. Just over 3 years (but very few miles).

Hmm... Odd luck but it sounds like you've gotten things figured out. What I see tends to happen is situations similar to what you're describing is that voltage DTCs begin to set when various control modules in the vehicle see a source voltage less than their minimum in order to function normally. Once said module(s) tend to see 10 volts or less, those DTCs can set and set alerts via the i-Mid display.

Sometimes a good charge via battery charger or a decent drive will allow the 12 volt battery to charge up enough and after one or more drive cycles, the DTCs will disappear.

The EPB will automatically disengage when it sees that the driver's seat belt is buckled and the vehicle begins to move via throttle input while in gear (on both CVT and M/T cars).

Slight side note: I also believe there may be a method for the EPB to engage while pulling into a parking spot nose first. I've only done it once in my 2016 M/T as well as a 2017 Civic SI but haven't quite figure out the necessary sequence to trigger it. Will have to thumb through owner's manuals and owner's preference setting guides to find that later.

Veni, vidi, velcro... I came, I saw, I stuck around.

True.. i would check for the tabs though. I have a feeling that is the trick!!
