Unhappy Hand Brake seizure - Scenic Grand

I have a scenic grand 2011. A month ago the hand brake seized whilst going up a multi storey ramp. There was a strong smell burning - but the brake released and I thought no more of it.
The parking brake hazard warning light came on a couple of weeks later and today I took the car in for a check up - rear disc scored, new glow plugs required and a new handbrake computer require £1000!
Could all three be connected to the hand brake seizure?

Re: Hand Brake seizure - Scenic Grand

this is the garage price for parts and labour,....
Glow plugs are not related to brakes,
Was this a fast fit check up or your local trusted garage, dont know how much the parts are. Are they related to the rear brakes locking on you, again its hard to say yes, as the brakes worked fine for a few weeks..
Did the garage try and reset the handbrake fault ( clear the code with a diagnostic machine) or just condemned it because of the light on the dash?
