Re: Electronic handbrake on - motor still works

Just checking that you've reset properly?

The manual over-ride in the boot disconnects a link inside the EPB module.
The reset should manually (from dashboard) drive the unit as far as it can to release the brakes and re-latch the link.
So it must be push the release button and pull the handle and hold to give the EPB chance to relatch.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
