Warning light has come on for my handbrake, however it comes on when I turn off the ignition and releases when I give a bit of acceleration.
so handbrake is working, but the button won’t engage/release it.
anyone have any clues as to if it’s an easy fix or not?
Car : Vauxhall Isignia
Hi. The handbrake actuator lever has been sticking a bit so I tried to work the nut with a spanner to free it up, however I have been heavy handed as the nut and top of the bolt (the one that activates the caliper when the handbrake is used) has snapped off.
My question is, is it possible to...

Ive been having this problem with my 2009 insignias electronic handbrake. The handbrake seems to work, but the button/switch does nothing. I replaced the button with a new one and same problem. The handbrake comes up automatically when I shut off the engine and releases with clutch+gas...

I was driving along the M6 and my handbrake light decided to come on, my dials also went a bit mental but there was no loss of power to the car. This has done this several times now and it scares the life out of me when it does it.
The handbrake light...
How can I adjust the handbrake?, anybody have a clue?

Good evening lads and lasses,
After fitting some new brake shoes on the rear, the bloody handbrake cable on my 04plate, 1.7 Combo snapped on Saturday.
It’s snapped on the offside rear, where the cable goes into the hub. I’ve checked on Euro Car Parts and it would seem that there’s more than...
Managed to get shoes changed today. Nearside also needed new self adjuster and wheel cylinder. Bled brakes no problem and had car out for a spin with handbrake still backed off at the 10mm bolt inside the car.
Car brakes nice and even, no pulling to one side or anything.

I know there are...
After my 99 plate Astravan had been stood a while, the handbrake cable typically stuck on, I am now in the process of replacing the centre cable. I have it all disconnected bar a little tricky bit near the brake drum. I have it unclipped at the drum so have the end loose its just the...
