Accidentally drove with parking brake on for 10 mins

Hi, long story short. Not used to my new Jeep's handbrakes. Always drove electronic controlled parking brake vehicle prior to this and forgot to release the handbrake. Drove it for maybe 10 mins before realizing it was still on. I don't see any issues with rear braking and I'm assuming the handbrake system is electronically controlled to automatically release if it senses that the driver is driving. Googled the brake schematics and this is what I found (attached).

Can anyone confirm with the parking brakes electronically releases if it senses the vehicle is in Drive?

Thanks,

I don't know for sure, but with the handle you pull up to engage the brakes I would not think they electronically release. But, if the Jeep rolled easily I doesn't seem that you had the park brake set tight, so you probably didn't hurt anything seriously. Just wore the pad a little more than usual. I'm surprised the thing didn't beep, or buzz to let you know the brakes were engaged.

Now, I could be way off into the tall grass here. If I'm wrong hopefully someone with more experience with Jeep's than I am will chime in. I just got mine the last of May.

It won't disengage by itself, it's mechanical. The last two vehicles I owned had a button which I assume is similar to the electronic one the OP mentions but neither of those vehicles would automatically disengage.

Seems like the brake on the Jeep wasn't tight or else you would definitely tell the engine was struggling against the brakes. Based on that it shouldn't cause any issue.

What's done is done, I've done it so I know the "feeling" ahh shit I just f'd up my Jeep - I'm a bad person.....

Nah and fact is IF you had really set that brake - you woulda gone no where.

Don't make a habit of it. You're fine, and no it's mechanical so there is no nanny-button saver of grace.

Been there done that. I remember needing to back up on a trail and wondering why I was having such a hard time moving back when I had no trouble moving forward to get there... then someone standing alongside said, "Hey, your rear wheel ain't rolling!"

Oops.

^^^This...many of us have done it. Try your parking brake and see if it holds. If it does, then you are good to go.

You’re fine. It’s not a Volkswagen.
