When lifting the parking brake the brakes are certainly being applied but the button is not engaging so the brake will not stay on

Car has been in my garage unused for 2 years.

I was wondering what it would be a hose of some sort im not sure

When I try to put it down there is a fairly loud click from where the relays are in the trunk. When i push the button the other way, there is a slight click but much softer and it seems to come from same spot. Quarter windows work fine.

The problem is all the time I cannot get constant voltage only switched voltage.

This is also right around the time the engine reaches normal operation temperature.
