    Parking brake dash light

    When checking the car over after the dashboard refit, I found the parking brake light was not coming, even during the instrument cluster check at startup. Can someone confirm this light does come on at startup even with the hand break off. Car is a 99 facelift model.

    No, it only comes on with the handbrake.

    Found the fault, someone at some point must have had the handbrake out and rather than unplug the connector it was a better idea just to rip the wires out then shove them back in and hold in place with a bit of tape..... Just confirms why I would rather do the job myself.
