If it thinks the hardbrake is on and you try to drive the car.

PARK in big red letters would be where the ramp is.

Just read the display and it will tell you if it is brakes.

Like I said at the start, Google check symbols and you quickly get an explanation, check this pdf here

Says brake pads need changing with those 2 on page 30...

Question

hi guys..on the service history it is showing another 3600 miles for rear brakes and 10,000 miles for the frony brakes, but I still get the hand brake symbol warning, I am fine to get the pads changed, but just need to find sometime off from work, how quickly this would need to be done? any ideas?
