Hi Gary .

When the EDC (Electronic diesel system) comes on then the management system will have a stored code or codes .

you will need to get hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool and check for malfunction codes .

You could have a electrical issue that could be in with the hand brake and warning alarm going off but the diagnostic scan will confirm this for you.

For further assistance with this issue please get back to me with the reply box below .
