Is there a fuse you can remove to disable this feature?

HI Phil

I know its been 2 years since you placed this thread, but I know exactly what you are talking about. The handbrake seems to apply itself every time you slow down to a halt. So at every stop sign, traffic light or traffic jam it seems to take a while to unlock itself before you can pull off. Just incase anyone else reads this - the hand brake is not applied by the driver, it does it by its self.

Did you reslove this issue and if so what was done to rectify it? Thanks
