Thanks for your help especially the wiring diagram which has solved the problem.

Brakes were working fine but the switch had broken.

Once I was able to power the auto brake and parking brake they came off and finally I am mobile.

I still cannot find the fuse to the parking brake switch so if anybody has any idea where that might be I would appreciate it.

It's really good to know that so many of you know the workings of these vehicles as its all a bit daunting at the moment.

Would you think that a trip to Signature Motors to give it a once over would be a good investment?

Hi Alan
Glad to hear that you are sorted, great here isn't it?
Whereabouts are you located? Signature are just north of Wolverhampton, so it could be quite a trip for you.
