Default Breaking system faulty

Hi there,

This error comes out now and then, not very often and disappears, even de warning sign and the stop sign. The car drives without any issues and I can't find the trigger. Any ideas?

Another issue is that the cooling temperature gauge seems not to be working as barely goes up, even after being driving for one hour. Could it be the temperature sensor?

Thanks in advance.

Jero.

Could be the brake switch. Cheap, quick easy fix.

But, a diagnostic is the best step to take:

The temperature gauge issue could also be caused by the thermostat being stuck wide open.

How does the cabin heater perform? If it's not very effective, suspect the thermostat. If it's very effective , suspect the temperature sensor.

The cabin heater it's not very effective. Takes time to warm up and then it's warm but not hot. Could it be then the thermostat? Has it anything to do with the temperature gauge? Is it a thing I can fix?

And thank you very much for your help.

Thank you for the information. I have contacted one of them for a diagnostic.

You can also get a brake warning if the system thinks you are driving with the handbrake on.... handbrake switch faulty/not set properly.

Thank you. The message comes up at about two minutes after starting to drive.

Does the ABS light come on at the same time if so could be a wheel sensor

Couldn't really be anything else.
Replacing it yourself is a job a competent diy mechanic could do.
Don't delay doing this, running the engine overcooled will lead to rapid engine wear and poor fuel mileage, and of course cold weather is already upon us!.

The temperature gauge is telling you the engine isn't getting up to temperature, nothing wrong there.

Roger.

I've checked today the brake fluid and it's a bit low, so I'll fill it up and see if that was the issue. Thanks for your advice.
