Parking brake fault then engine fault repair

Post by Ll35 »

Hi got in my car this morning and it stated parking brake fault so car wouldn't start.
Tried turning off and back on again and now stating engine fault repair.
Car won't start so can't use radio etc.
Any Suggestions?

It really needs a proper diagnostic otherwise we would be guessing. A parking brake fault should not on its own prevent the vehicle from starting, so you have something else going on.

My first thoughts though would be to check the battery. If the battery is weak and not providing enough power for ECUs then it can cause all sorts of electrical faults. What happens when you try to start the engine - does it turn over but not start?

When my battery was about to die i had the same issue as well as an error with the directional headlights and ONLY the keyless working on the drivers door. Once teh battery was changed all the issues were gone
