The

ABS TC and Handbrake lights are constantly illuminated regardless.

The HB one is puzzling as it is on regardless of whether the handbrake is on or not!

Brakes are perfect etc

Any ideas chaps.

Cheers.

The handbrake light isn't a handbrake light, it's a brake issue light. It'll come on if you are low on brake fluid or any other fault.

Get suitable diagnostics on it and find out whats causing the light to come on. Would suspect its an ABS fault, but it helps to actually know which wheel its complaining about (assuming its a wheel sensor and not something else) before you start trying to sort it. I'd suspect all the lights are indicating the same problem/have the same cause. Do you know anyone with a Nano?

ABS and TC light will come on if one of the sensors has worn down or if there is corrosion on the half shaft where the sensors pick up their signal. Hopefully its the the sensors. They can be a mare to remove.... Blast them with rust remover or your favorite bolt loosener for a few days prior to removing. If you are replacing sensors do both of them.

Any switch on the handbrake I would of thought will be a simple push on/off type so simple to test, pop window switch panel off and it should be there, the fact you’ve got abs as well I’d be surprised if that is the fault.

Yep, puzzling but as you say, easy to check.

When she was laid up when the fault stuck she was fine, but as we all know!

They don't like sitting!!
