Re: handbrake reset? how??
Try the reset then but does sound as though there may be an intermittent fault.
Door open, key card in.
Don't touch any pedals.
Press and hold start button until dashboard lights up fully...about ten seconds.
Push in and hold centre button on handbrake handle
Pull outer handle (basically you are manually releasing handbrake)
Hold for 5-10 seconds.
Operate handbrake normally.
Press start button to switch off and key card out.
When boot release is pulled, it disconnects the cables inside the parking brake unit.
When you operate manually and hold, the unit drives back as far as it can and cables relink, then unit can operate again.
On the fault, check under passenger seat, you will need to remove the drawer.
There are cables and fuses under there.
Hopefully no water but check, that is a common problem.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
