Grand Scenic - parking brake not self releasing

A couple of years ago my clutch slave cylinder went (big job...took it to the local mechanic) ....I can't be 100% sure, but I reckon since that point in time my parking brake hasn't self released's random, I'd say 90% of the time it doesn't self release when pulling away.

Also, I've a continuous 'check parking brake' warning on my dashboard...but the parking brake works fine (it release perfectly when I use the manual 'handbrake off'). I got a local garage to reset this error (which got me through my MOT!)...but it came straight back.

Any ideas?

The car is getting on a bit in age & I've a bad feeling this is going to severely impact my wallet department....might opt to sell it 'as seen' with 6 months MOT remaining!!

Re: Grand Scenic - parking brake not self releasing

Just guessing but is this not something to do with the clutch pedal switch...maybe needs adjusted after the new slave cylinder?
