I'm not sure about the "flickering" part of your problem, but even
though the e-brake handle may be released, the _cable_ may not be
fully retracted by the caliper springs (even if the car is able to
roll easily). Check to make sure the rear ebrake actuating levers (on
both sides) are fully returned to their stops.
