i presume you mean the electronic parking brake does not meet the minimum effort for mot test, first check the rear calipers and pads, the caliper sliders seize and/or the pads seize in the caliper frame, check the discs also for bad corrosion, is the park brake warning showing on the dash? if so check the wiring above the rear subframe its prone to chaffing and grounding out, the park brake motors are also troublesome, sounds like a pad/ caliper problem more than likely seized sliders easy job to free off, hope this is helpfull to you.
if the park brake warning is on and the park brake is inop. there are several common problems with this system, the most likely causes are 1 the rear brake caliper sliders are part siezed or the pads siezed in the caliper frame 2 the wiring to the park brake motor open circuit or rubbed through on the rear subframe.3 the park brake motor has failed, you really needto get the fault codes out of the park brake module if the above checks out ok the above faults i have found to be the cause 9 out of 10 times. hope this helps.
Sorry to break the bad new to you, put you most likely need a transmission depending on what codes are stored in the system. I have dont numerous automatic transmission on x-types all they all started with a gear box fault light on.
If the codes have something to do with a incorrect gear ration that is a guarantee red flag for a new transmission
