Default Where is the handbrake sensor?

My 807 dashbord is beeping 3 times and (repeating all the time), and claim that the handbrake is on. Witch is it not. So where do I find the sensor?

Check brake fluid level first as this can cause the problem. Other than that the switch is in the base of the handbrake lever

Thanks
It came after I changed rear brakepads and rotor (pluss a seconhand clocksping). Handbrake works just fine, and got it throu MOT after that. Can too much brakefluid be the reason too? (very difficult to see how much brakefluid on 807, since it is located way back.)

Check for loose handbrake cables if arms on rear calipers are not fully returning and cable is slack it may be the lever is not being pulled right down and pressing the switch fully down.

Too much fluid should not cause issue as sensor is just a float in the top of the reservoir

SOLVED: It was the switch at the back of the handbrakehandle. Was somehow dislocated a little bit. Just put in in place, and all now just work fine.
Thanks for the suggestions
