One last spin up the hills and the morning cost me a DSC Fault light with Master Caution :-( amber display which I believe effects ABS also, at least it felt like it and then back on the motorway a Master Warning :-( RED emergency brake assist fail display. My P&J is now off the road for winter months at which case I will then get it sorted but hope its at least driveable to the dealer, The Red emergency brake assist in red is now intermittent so do I attempt it or not?????
One other thing I found last year after a few months of parked up with Parking brake set was park brake light remained on or brake did'nt properly release so I out looking for chocks or breeze blocks .

It's never a good idea to leave the handbrake on for extended periods of time. Just leave it in gear or Park.

+1 Tend to leave mine in reverse in a flat garage as the brakes can bind.

I heard you only use it to get your doughnuts started in Sainsbury's car park....

That's for FWD

All we need to do is turn steering wheel, press right foot firmly, straighten steering. Wait until everyone impressed. Release right foot
