    Hopefully the title says it all... Handbrake light/sensor is on permanently even when handbrake is down. Once you move off the beeping sound constantly, goes off until you come to a halt again. Can anyone give me any advice on what to do/ where to take the car to be seen?

    It is just a simple switch (much like a courtesy light switch) under the lever, make sure it is being operated.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    It has been seen to and the switch is working I have been told that it may be a broken wire or something, maybe a new wire to bypass the old broken one is needed?
