The emergency brake is mechanical not electrical. There is no fuse for the emergency brake. It is most likely that the brake cable leading to the rear brakes is stuck. This is quite common in vehicles with automatic transmissions because the e-brake (parking brake) is not used very often. As a result the cables get rusty and stick. It is also possible that the cable needs to be adjusted; but it is more likely that it will need to be replaced due to 7 years of exposure to road dirt, water, salt, etc. etc. etc.
You may be able to release it by putting the car in drive and then into reverse to put a little pressure on the cable. If it does release for you, still have it checked as it will lock up again. Joe
