    Default Hand brake light on and beeping & rattle under gear box / handbrake ? help

    2008 astra 3 door 1.9

    Hello, past week or so there has been a regular but not constant rattling / squeaking noise coming from below the handbrake / gear stick area when driving and when stopped. Seems to do like a wind down squeak when i turn the car off too. Then this morning the handbrake light came on and the pinging noise commenced. only stops pinging / lighting when braking at certain times. Help is appreciated! (new tyres put on yesterday if that is a factor maybe)

    thanks in advance guys

    Sounds like the handbrake switch sensor has vibrated loose under the gaiter.
