Welcome. You probably rented a Leaf with the electric parking brake. The release for that is a sort of toggle button located between the seats, near the shifter. I thought that those released automatically if the car was shifted into D, but guess not...
As for the red exclamation point: that indicates a serious, but not necessarily permanent error. It illuminates to get your attention, but there is usually a second warning light that identifies the problem more specifically.
Thanks for the reply. Yes I was aware of the fact that these have parking brakes. Either as a footbreak variant or the one with P toggle option. And believe me for some weird reason none were present in this model. So I assumed it is some new version which automatically applies it.
I could also reverse back normally and I carefully checked for Park indicator too and there was none. So I was not sure what's happening with D and B.
Thanks for replying on exclamation. I believe but I could be wrong this appeared only after my futile attempts to drive forward. Pressing of acceleration dragged the car forward a bit similar to one where you apply handbreak and try to move car ahead.
This was my first electric vehicle and I was just not sure . And I was doing this in parking lot with assumption that people are staring at me so instead of taking pics and all. I just froze managed to drag the vehicle back to parking area and leave in dismay.
