    the only answer m8 is it must be scanned which will give you the fault so in the long run its cheaper than just swopping bits that people will guess is the fault...
    sorry it isnt much help but it helps with the guessing game

    This sounds familiar. I think I had this and it was the brake light switch needed replacing. Check if your brake lights are working, that'd be another tell-tale sign.

    I'm not 100% certain but if it is the brake light switch then it's an easy fix. There's a guide on here somewhere.
