I have 2004 S type diesel. The park brake is giving a fault

Customer Question

I have 2004 S type diesel. The park brake is giving a fault and the car beeps continuously when driven. The right brake lamp failed first. This sequence has happened before. Your advice would be appreciated.

Many thanks,

there's a reset procedure for the brake which is

a. Switch off the ignition.
b. Disconnect the battery for 30 seconds.
c. Reconnect the battery.
2. Start the engine.
3. Firmly apply and release the footbrake five times.
4. Confirm that the message NOT CALIBRATED or APPLY FOOT AND PARK
BRAKE is displayed on the instrument cluster message center. This indicates that
the parking brake is in calibration 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 footbrake.
9. Confirm that the brake warning lamp is no longer illuminated on the instrument
pack and that the NOT CALIBRATED message is no longer displayed in the
message center.
10. Apply and release the EPB five times to ensure no error is present.

If this doens't work then its possible that the brake electric motor may need replacing I'm afraid
