GTV ' Handbrake On ' Warning Light.
More curious than concerned about this one. On my GTV the “ Handbrake On “ warning light has always been intermittent, usually cured by applying the handbrake on and off for a few times. Recently this is not working too well, finding it hard to get the light on now. The question is, is there a separate switch for this, in which case a dose of switch cleaner would probably fix it, or, is it done by contact through the brake pads on to the disc ? As I said not a worry, but I am curious.
Confession time – rarely use the handbrake, here in the flatlands the biggest hill within 20 miles is the local railway level crossing so obviously lack of use has no doubt exacerbated the problem !
Anyone else had this and bothered to fix it ?
