Sounds like the old faulty handbrake switch, I've not had this on mine yet.

If your desperate & wish to fault find, the glovebox switch is the same part.

I agree - it's a fairly common thing, although I haven't experienced it yet.
As stated, you can remove the switch on the glove box ( it only puts the light on inside anyway ) and swap it with the handbrake switch - if it's fixed then get another switch to put in the glove box :cheesy:
