I've had this issue starting only a few days ago. It seems random as to when it occurs too. It's very unpredictable. I'll be calling the dealer soon.

Mine works as it should. Has anyone else wondered how to use this e-Brake in an actual Emergency, such as your brakes failed & you needed to "nudge" on the emergency brake to stop the vehicle? This e-Brake is either full 100% locked or off without modulation. That would lock the rear wheels & send vehicle out of control!

It’s not really an emergency brake anymore but instead a parking brake.

Yes. This has happened randomly since I picked up my vehicle 3 weeks ago. It will almost always do it if I’m on an incline but will also do it in my garage sometimes. I’d say it’s done it half a dozen times. According to the manual, it is normal.

Ok thx still strange mine does it on flat ground. Maybe it just doing a test
Yes, as I wrote in my post above, mine has done it a few times while sitting in the garage. I will go out to start it, and it is on. I truly don't think anything is wrong, since it is addressed in the manual. There are a few Facebook groups dedicated the the Blazer, and many members have posted that they experience the same thing.

I had similar with my 2019 Blazer. Mine actually jammed itself into park while I was driving! I have never even touched the parking brake. It was in the dealer for a few days where they had to replace brake actuators and there was also a service bulletin for the "shift to park" issue.

Yes. Do you crank it and pull the stick shift into gear before everything boots up?

It's not doing it for any testing. Atleast not what you're describing. It's doing it with your parking assist. If it detects you are close to something and the triangle with the exclamation point shows on your reverse camera when you park the vehicle will engage the parking break as a precaution incase it rolls at all while you're not in the vehicle.
