The dash lights up braking system

Would that stop the van from starting
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 7 days ago.
Dear customer effectively an emergency mode can disable the ignition or performance, to avoid further damage, if you consider the first thing to do is to perform a data reset of the error codes from a diagnostic tool.
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 7 days ago.

Dear customer, as a general answer, since you have not answered what I have asked you, I must tell you that when the car does not start and there are indicators related to the braking system, you should check if the failure is related to a problem with the switch on the brake pedal, as it can get stuck, causing us not to be able to start the car. The appropriate thing to do, however, is to carry out a diagnostic check with diagnostic equipment, as when there is an indicator on there is likely to be an associated code, which could help you determine the source of the fault, sometimes even just errors that are stored and trigger emergency modes that can be reset from diagnostic equipment.
