Hello the handbrake motors on these are rather exposed and prone to siezing up so if you can get under the car and liberally spray the cables as they exit the motor then this will help then try this reset procedure1. Reset the EPB module as detailed belowa. Switch off the ignition.b. Disconnect the battery for 30 seconds .c. Re-connect the battery.2. Start the engine.3. Firmly apply and release the footbrake five times.4. Confirm that the message 'NOT CALIBRATED' or 'APPLY FOOTAND PARK BRAKE' is displayed on the instrument clustermessage centre. This indicates that the parking brake is incalibration mode.5. Lightly press the footbrake pedal.6. Apply the parking brake by using the EPB switch.7. Release the parking brake.8. Release the footbrake9. Confirm that the brake warning lamp is no longer illuminated on theinstrument pack and that the 'NOT CALIBRATED' message is nolonger displayed in the message centre.10. Apply and release the EPB five times to ensure no error is present
