Hi can anyone please give some advice as to what this problem may be before I take it to the garage. Randomly whilst driving my handbrake light appears flashes amber first then changes to red once this appears a second symbol appears which is Amber a triangle with a explanation in the middle with a arrow around it, sometimes the handbrake light starts on in the main screen and the other where under the Rev counter is and sometimes visa versa. I’m not sure weather it’s maybe faulty sensors as my left driver side brake pad sensor has been removed. Any one got any suggestions or ideas? The lights can come on when I’m in second going round a roundabout or when I’m doing 70mph on motorway going straight. Thanks in advanced.

first off would replace all wear sensors the system is designed to work with them, also would think about a brake service at same time, as car is 2008 11 years old the plastics used on the sensors just crack when crack they go intermittent, ie can buy on ebay full set of new sensors and seat of brake pads front and rear as a kit for not that much money, just get garage to fit them labour only say, thats what i would do. we do that all the time for customers,
