    Default Problem

    I was driving home last night doing whatever leptons that were required and my handbrake light came on as i was braking for a roundabout, i immediatley stopped and turned the car off but when i turned it on again the light had extinguished. The car did this twice but i dont know why, can anyone explain???????????

    Yep, sounds like low fluid. Also check your breaklines to see if they are weeping. Getting mine replaced ASAP as there is severe corrosion in places.

    Regards

    I had this to me when I got my car, everytime i went round a sharp corner handbrake light would come on.
    Its caused by low brake fluid level (which i believe is connected to the hydraulic clutch system aswell)
    Had mine topped up and no trouble since and light has stayed out.
