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!
