Re: hand brake fault light

Several threads regarding this with several resolutions.

Battery low, mine was this even though it still started and ran fine but nothing stopping us driving other than message on dashboard.

Rear Calipers stuck

Rear Pads

Lastly which may stop the car from running is the electronic module with the motor under the car. If this is at fault it is very costly. Some people have been able to repair theirs, some people have been able to buy a used part but this doesn't often work.

I also believe that Reno dealers are the only ones able to reset the elctronic module and ECU .

I would say one of your first jobs is to get the faults read may be by a dealer. It'll cost but should give you a sound starting point.

Best of luck
