I have checked the brake fluid which seems ok, has the flat battery caused an issue somewhere? it drives fine. The beeping was not there last week.
Is the hand brake being released all of the way down..when I had my Clio 3 and when the wife drove it she had a bad habit of not releasing the hand brake all of the way down and a sensor would trigger a beeping to tell her that she need to drop it all the way down..might be related might not but worth a mention anyway..
