Re: Electronic Handbrake - DIY Repair possible?

Just tried all that lot with mine and it confused the heck out of the car. At one point I couldn't even lock the doors to go inside out the cold. Anyhoo error message still there. Motor is working fine on mine. Parking brake appears to work and the brakes pull up in a good distance and in a straight line.

I'm at a loss as to what to do next, too skint to afford a new unit fitting. Will have to leave it and see if it fails MOT later this year.

I guess if the parking brake works correctly on both rear wheels and the car brakes work ok then it shouldn't fail MOT even with the error message displayed.
