At times, my Prius won't start. The car message says that the parking brake has not engaged and has locked the transmission. It says to go to a flat area and try to start it. I am in my garage-it is flat. I need to release and reset the parking brak for up to 10 minutes before it will work. The Toyota garage does not know what the problem is-do you?

Could be a fault with the parking brake switch circuit that is not working correctly intermittently. When problem occurs, ensure the parking indicator light is turned on.
