Re: Electronic Handbrake will not auto release

You may want to have a look at the main loom connections and EPB relays especially if you've been having issues with water.

They live under the passenger seat behind the storage bin in the subterranean area of the floor (keep meaning to get the blog updated on my website for this one)

We had one in recently which needed an EPB according to the local main agent. On further inspection (by us) the wiring was shot as it had been sat in 4 inches of standing water and corroded everything so a new cabin and dash loom were really needed. The customer agreed but couldn't afford to spend 1600 so he asked me to cut and shut a new loom from a doner vehicle in to his which worked... horrible job to do though. Strangely enough the EPB was fine!
