Re: Electronic Handbrake - DIY Repair possible?

As far as I'm aware it's only the really expensive readers that will read brake errors. May be your just needs brakes stripping down and cleaning. The caliper could be sticking. I've heard of the cables themselves sticking too.
Careful using the emergency release in the boot, I'm sure I've read on here somewhere that the brakes need resetting when this has been used.
