Hand-brake light comes on when accelerating hard.
Subject is pretty self-explanatory. If I accelerate hard from a standing start, while the car is really pulling, the hand-brake light comes on pretty much all the time. It will go off again once the rate of acceleration slows down but should I be worried about this, and does it/has it happened to anyone else ?
It sometimes happens in 2nd gear if I give it real welly but mostly happens in 1st.
