Re: Parking brake warning slow to clear

If it's any consolation My Scenic 2 is exactly the same.
Parking Brake off message stays on for more then a few seconds after it releases. Has done for the year and a half I've owned the car so don't think it's a fault.
The red handbrake on symbol drops as the brake releases so that is the immediate warning light and the only one (I think) that the MOT should be looking at regardng parking brake operation.
(Unless one of the more critical messages come up )
There does seem to be a wealth of confusion with (some) MOT testers regarding which warning lights/messages should be included in the test.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
