I had the yellow brake warning light and flashing parking brake light problem a few weeks ago. Switching off and on didn't cure it so as I was going past the Nissan dealership on my way home anyway I popped in and they got a tech to have a look there and then. According to the service manager the fault was showing as a defective parking brake switch. After half an hour they handed the car back with no error lights and I never saw the fault again but they changed the switch the following week anyway. Interestingly for the short time the fault was present I did notice that only one side of the parking brake was working...I could tell by the way the back end of the car was behaving when the brake was auto released when pulling away. I haven't seen the wiring diagram to check whether there are separate contacts for left and right rear brakes to confirm if the switch could have been the fault. It may be a coincidence, but the fault did occur on the same day I changed the cabin air filter which is a b of a job on the RHD version and does involve pushing bits of wiring loom out of the way

Bob d, I had exactly the same symptoms, went to the dealers several times for it and was told to monitor it! Eventually they said the park brake ecm was faulty and fitted a new one, touch wood the fault hasn't reoccurred!

Thinking back, the fault only occurred when I was wearing a particular pair of trainers, I've not worn them since and there's been no recurrence :roll:

Just a positive update. After the problems we had with the Brake Warning Lights and the comments from our Nissan Dealer we travelled 720kms (450 miles), with Stop Start OFF and NO problems appeared with the Brake Lights during the whole journey - Dave ;)

Just had the same fault occur on my 2014 Accenta having just had the brakes done a few days ago during a service, the handbrake button flashes now in time with the NATS warning on the dashboard!. I'll try the switching off the Stop/Start till I can get it looked at next week sometime. Cheers for the updates.

Hi,

Sorry for dragging up old posts but I’ve got the same issue as many others seem to have had. I’ve got a 2016 Quashquai and the parking brake flashes when applied and the orange warning light also comes on. Is this a fault with the car itself?

This problem has been around for some time with varying corrections I would get some advice from Nissan on this as Braking Systems are important. I have attached an old post from way back in 2016 so you can get an idea of how long this problem has been around. Also try using the web as there are many comments there also - Dave 😉

I had a grand scenic in which the electroic hand branke started making a gringing sound, garage said I needed a new computer and the cost would be £1000, I offered to go to PC World and buy a cheaper computer but the service manager just glared at me

My 66 plate experienced this too.
The dealer replaced the control unit.
Only one side was intermittently engaging , but could be either side.
The dealer said a fault code was present which helped
