My red handbrake symbol keeps flashing what does this mean please


The handbrake light is usually not the handbrake light, it is a warning light for the whole braking system. You could have a problem with the abs system, low brake fluid in the master cylinder or brake pads worn down.
The brake fluid reservoir is easy to check, just lift up the hood and it should be right there mounted on top of the brake booster, in line where the brake pedal is.
The brake pads on modern vehicles have sensors that warn you when they need replacement, so have them checked.
Finally of course, you could have a loose wire on the handbrake warning switch which is mounted at the base of the handbrake, or if you're very lucky, you might just need to drop the handbrake just a fraction more before you drive off.

Ford transit 07 handbrake light not working


Wow- very complicated. No, many transits that age have no switch for the handbrake. I don't know why. But if you want to know where to find the switch so you can check yourself, you just pull up the handbrake cover and remove it. (Is rather stiff). There is a tounge on the leaver which should press a switch once the handbrake has come down to rest. The switch Is held onto the handbrake bracket by a small clip. Basically, if you remove the cover and you can't see an obvious wire / switch , you don't have one :-)

The handbrake button light keeps flashing & the handbrake wont go off


Misplace/Broken switch located next to the back of hand brake. Hand brake is on. Low brake fluid. Check brake pads by removing tire. Change brake fluid if it's time.

Handbrake light comes on but fluid level is topped up


When you engage the handbrake the handbrake light should come on. It has nothing to do with the fluid level.
If it is coming on without the handbrake being applied, then you possibly have:
1. A faulty switch. The switch activates the handbrake light.
2. A stuck braking cable. To eliminate this place the handbrake on and attempt to back-up (reverse). It should not move with your foot off the brake. Do not put your foot on the gas (accelerator). Place your foot on the brake and disengage the the handbrake. Again with your feet neither on the gas or brake. The vehicle should move backwards.
In all likleyhood the switch is bad. It is easily located right under the handbrake arm and easily removed and replaced.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have any additional information, problems, or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Handbrake warnjng light comes on when driving


The switch that detects when the handbrake is pulled is either loose and jiggling around or the handbrake cable is loose and allowing it to move enough to hit that switch. That's not safe, you need to have it looked at.
