    Default Electronic handbrake

    Does any one know if there is a manual override for this, in the event of a power failure/flat battery?

    I asked that exact question of the local dealers when the recall arrived for the BCM. The answer on the phone was, "Good question!".

    They went on to tell me that there wasn't and that the brake would be jammed on if the battery went flat. I'm not 100% convinced of the answer but FWIW that's what they told me.
