Interesting, thanks.

I assume that as you say everything still works when driving that this "fix" has left the manual operation working correctly from the dashboard handle ??

A note for UK readers.
Latest MOT requirements include
Electronic parking brake controls are now included and must be present and not inappropriately repaired or modified - repair obviously likely to adversely affect the roadworthiness of the vehicle or modification that has seriously weakened the component.

The car will fail if an Electronic Parking Brake warning lamp is illuminated to indicate a malfunction.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
