Hi guys,

 

I need some advice. The Red Handbrake warning light has started illuminating and giving a "Ding" when it does.

 

This is intermittent but is becoming more frequent.

 

Any tips, thoughts or solutions ?

 

Chris

Have you been under the bonnet and checked the brake fluid level?

Your car started. Wheels facing forward. STAND on footbreak. 6 good Yuk's on Hand Brick. Will equalise Y cable and clockspring. Light out ? If not you may have bad wheel sensor reading. Best of luck.

Thanks for the inputs.

 

The fluid level is spot on,and the vehicle sailed thru its inspection less than a month ago.

 

I'll check out the other adjustments recommended this weekend and give an update.

I know you say the fluid level is spot on, but is it at the top?

 

The warning light is also for low fluid, so if it's intermittent it may be moving fluid, just my thought but if it isn't already bring it up to max, and if the light coming on is "repeatable" under circumstances you know, then maybe fix the float up and drive it to see if it comes on at that.

 

Or is it the handbrake switch become loose? And moving and coming on when the lever is fully down?
