Hey guys, just a little help please. My handbrake cable snapped about 2 months ago, so was just leaving it in gear (as you do) while the handbrake cable was still snapped the handbrake light started to come on when i was taking tight right hand corners. I fixed my handbrake cable last week and the problem persists... anyone have any ideas what this could be??? :confused:

Already done this m8, was the first port of call, i was thinking maybe there is a switch or something that is being activated when i go round a right hand corner, i have no idea about electrics so im probaly talking rubbish... thats the best i could come up with though

Your now in the same boat as me then, I just pretend its traction control or something similar and ignore it, it has got worse and worse though!
I was told to check the switch but not too sure where that is or what it looks like.

I just ran my battery flat - long story. Had the RAC out to jump start it, took it come late at night and had a sharp corner. Now getting the same problem but only conering right it seems. WTF? Must be electrical.

I had this, rear cylinder had gone and pissed it's contents into the left drum. Everytime I cornered the light flashed (I guess the sensor was seeing the level shift). Failing MOT shortly after, required new cylinder and shoes (old ones contaminated). Kwik Fit job was £250 for all work + MOT. Not too bad I guess but still pissed off,

I had the same problem, rear brake cylinder gone, spilling brake fluid everywhere, rear brake shoes worn down too. Got a new cylinder and new rear brake shoes for £125. Was anything else required for the MOT?

Yeah, one tyre so about right. 50 MOT + 30 tyre + 150ish brakes. It's what you get for going to Kwik Fit though. Glad it got sorted though, initially they told me I'd need new drums too!
