Check the breakaway brake switch on the pin box. If is gets pulled out, the brakes lock.

Thank you, it was the breakaway switch. It was not out, but I pulled it out and put it back in and it reset the brakes.

Hi,

If you were not plugged in the whole time, check your battery. If the brakes were engaged for any period of time in battery alone, it may be beyond saving.

Based on my own sad and expensive experience when a mischievous jerk pulled mine while it was in storage. Cost me two Trojan T-105s....

FWIW.
