fan fault now repaired but come back with a hand brake that doesn't auto release

Despite the credit crunch, today I parted with 230 to repair cabin fan that WAS only functioning on #3.

During payment the boss man says 'oh your service light came on on the handbrake whilst we had your dashboard out to repair the fan switch'

Has this repair caused the handbrake malfunction?? or is it just another day in paradise?

The service light will come on if the ignition has been activated whilst the handbrake switch was disconnected during the process of repairing the heater wiring.

Its quite common when carrying out this repair. The service light will just require to be cleared.
