    A6 3.0TDi Auto Electronic Parking Brake

    Hi All
    My 2005 C6 Auto has developed a intermittant fault where as I release the parking brake, the warning comes on the dash, and beeps like crazy. Initially, it would go if I turned off engine, and locked the car, and restarted the whole process.
    However the last couple days, it is happening more regularly, and today actually locked the brakes on, where I was parked in a car park, and had to reverse out. I was loaded up in the boot so wondered if this had anythinbg to do with it. I took some stuff out, and held the parking brake button down and it eventiually released.
    I can hear a motor from what seems the back rear wheel when it eventually releases.
    It is all very strange - not necessarily only on hills. I have not yet removed the wheels, but have read about wires being spliced as a temporary solution. What do I need to do to investigate, and how much will this cost.

    The car is under warranty (RAC top notch allegedly) but have not had the need to use this yet - will this be covered?

    Many thanks in advance

    I would guess it is just not releasing, I would say warranty should cover. I have an auto so never use hand brake. I would say though if you use it you can just drive with it on and it will just release by itself.
