Disconnecting a 57 Espace 2.0l Diesel battery

I have a 'check parking brake' fault message along with flashing 'stop' and 'service' signs on the dash. Renault has run a diagnostic - no error codes were found although they did find a slight over voltage issue which they think was caused by a jump start in the past. They reset the ECU and all was good until I parked the car on another slope and bingo - up pops the fault again. It only seems to happen when the car is parked on a slope - as my drive is a slope this is going to get very tedious!! Hand brake is working fine by the way. Loathed to pay Renault another 50 just to reset it, I read that i could disconnect the battery, clamp the leads together for ten mins to reset the ECU. The original guy who posed the question, confirmed this worked for him. Only trouble is that I have 2 neg cables and 2 pos cables (presumably because its a diesel) - See attached photo. Anybody know which 2 I have to clamp together? Would really appreciate some help on this one!
