Hello People, Could anyone tell me if it is possible to turn the warning lights off, if i remove the Handbrake module and convert the car to a manual handbrake.

I have had enough trouble with the current handbrake and can't get it to reset. in desperation it occurs to me to fit a manual handbrake.

The fitting would not be a problem, it's just getting the fairy lights to extinguish on the clocks.

I can not help but if you could do this it would be good. If you know somebody with a Lexia you could plug it in and see if there is a simple electric handbrake present yes/no question. If so then I would think this would disable it. You would also need to program it to see the handbrake lever switch from a manual handbrake. I would like an exclusive tourer but the electric handbrake and tailgate put me off.

Thanks Paul, I was having  to fix the handbrake and a couple of small jobs and sell it, This electric handbrake it the final straw.

It will write a load of these cars off, as the prices The Citroen stealers charge for replacement parts is ridiculous .

I will soon put the car on ebay spares or repair.
