Check the brake fluid level as this uses the same light when fluid is low if the fluid is low check the brake pads etc and check for leaks as the pads wear out the fluid goes down

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.

My handbrake light keeps flickering on my 1996 vw golf convertible


this could simply be a loose connection on the handbrake switch but this light is also the brake fluid level warning light so it might be a good idea to check the brake fluid level too. also it might be part of the brake pad warning system ane may indicate that the brake pads are nearing replacement it is also required to replace the warning wires with the pads


let me know if this helps

cheers mike

Volkswagon Passat 2005 - driving home from work and the handbrake warning light comes on followed by the annoying alarm. Turn slightly left it stops then the ASB warning light comes on followed by the ESP...


This sometimes is triggered by the MAF(Mass Air Flow Sensor), try cleaning it with the highest percent isoproply alcohal first, do not touch the sensor with anything use a big bag to soak it into, or just replace the sensor.

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.
