Welcome! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to assist you with this problem.

and this only happened after you changed the battery correct ?

it was ok before and would start and NO parking brake fault displayed ?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

The parking brake yellow and red were on before on the dash but never preveted the car to start. This new error appears when the key is turned on and it says system check in progress, then it says parking br fault

ok can you try this

sometimes after a battery change the computers need to be rebooted

disconnect both battery cables for 5 minutes then touch the 2 battery cables together for 1 minute

then connect the positive then the negative and see if it will start up

most of the time the rebooting will correct the no start problem

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Ok, disconnected both , will wait for 5min and re connect, keep you posted

I’m a moderator for this topic. It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!
