The park brake is the same on all vehicles. Usually on the driver side when you follow the cable, there will be an adjuster in the middle of the line. Turn to the right to tighten and left to loosten.

Take a look underneath for cable running to each rear wheel & then come together at one cable going forward. Adjustment should be in that "Y" area.

Underneath your vehicle, a steel threaded cable comes from the back of one hub and is joined by a short cable from the other hub--then the original cable runs to a threaded end with an adjuster nut in it--and one smaller nut on the end outside of that--(this is the equalizer bar)--you'll see it real close to your transmission.
You might have to jack-up the back of the vehicle???
Pull the parking brake lever up sharply and then release it.
Pull the parking brake lever to the second click and leave it there. You're looking for a slight drag of the brake shoes when you spin the wheels.
To increase the drag, get under at the equalizer bar and turn the adjusting nut to take up the slack in the cables. Get out and spin the rear wheels if you think it's to tight.
I will say don't be afraid to crank on it for a while as in this case, a little adjustment really does not go a long way. When you think you have the drag right, go back in the car and pull the brake up the the fourth click. At this point the wheels should be locked and you should not be able to turn them even when trying hard. If you can, tighten them up a little more.
Once you've done this, release the brake and make sure the wheels spin freely. If they are still binding due to the parking brake, back off the adjustment a little. And that's basically the whole adjustment procedure.

I think if the self adjusters are working properly you should be able to push the parking brake pedal (e-brake) to the floor once and release pedal. .

Rodos have an issue with the brake light switch which might cause the ESC light to turn on. Have the ABS system scanned, and if your car is still under warranty, then get the brake lights switch replaced.
