but now indicating battery in red and brakes in red. States handbrake problem and won't start. Needs the computer to reset I think. Anyone know how to do that. This is a common issue as far as I have read elsewhere. Thanks

Thank you, but I have tried too many times now. The electric handbrake had gone to manual and won't go auto. I think the computer needs to be reset, so calling the experts on Monday. Thank you anyway.
