Grand Scenic handbrake / Parking Brake release Switch?

Hi All,

I've had my scenic for 6 years and had a lot of the usual issues.

The current problem I have is the parking brake / handbrake won't release with the switch on the dash -it does apply and it releases OK when I set off (sensing clutch / accelerator).

Dash shows no errors, as I said park brake applies OK with switch and when engine is stopped - so actually works fine.

Its been like this for three years (3 MOTs with three different testers inc a local authority one) but on MOT last week was failed because of this???

Any idea what the problem could be? I bought a replacement (used) handbrake switch off eBay , but makes no difference. I also checked for water in electrics / relay under passenger seat but no signs.

Any help appreciated!!!

Currently in shorn1's garage:
